​APC Parent Handbook & Parent Volunteers Needed

Parent volunteers are needed for 10th grade Hearing and Vision Screening which will take place at Acalanes High School in the School Nurse Office on November 29 and December 6.  During many of the periods, we screen a large group of students for Hearing and Vision in less than one hour. Having parent volunteers enables us to proceed through the screening much more efficiently and smoothly with less interruptions. If you are able to help out , please sign-up

​Intervention Specialists Available

Ms. Mary Threlkel and Ms. Alison Gans, our trained crisis counselors, are available to meet with students struggling with social, emotional or personal issues in order to get help and learn coping skills. Students can sign up to see them in the Counseling Office or by referral from their counselors. Ms. Threlkel and Ms. Gans will present strategies for students to cope with stress at an upcoming Friday Forum. We are fortunate that the Acalanes Parents Club (APC) fully funds this shared position at our site.

Peer Tutoring

Acalanes Parents Club is proud to provide the Peer Tutoring Program to all students and we couldn't do it without the support of APC families - thank you! Students can check out Peer Tutoring every day during lunch, 7th period, and after school until 4pm in the covered hallway near the quad entrance. Encourage your student to come once and they will be hooked. Best of all, it's completely on a drop-in basis and absolutely free (Snacks are offered too).
