Juniors - Class of 2019

Junior & Senior Prom

Saturday, May 12 at San Francisco City Hall.

Tickets are on sale via the webstore. The cost for Acalanes students is $85, and $100 for guests. You will find the permission form on the webstore when you purchase your ticket. If paying by check, you can download the permission form.

Bus assignments for Prom will take place during lunch from April 23 - May 4 in the front quad. Each student needs to present his/her permission slip along with the webstore receipt or a check for payment.

Junior & Senior Parent letters needed to encourage a safe Prom

Prom Wise Week begins May 7.  One of its goals is to help emphasize the negative effects of being under the influence and challenge students to consider their choices after Prom. On Friday, May 11, we give out letters from parents to Juniors and Seniors that tell them to be safe and underline that THEY ARE LOVED. Leadership would really appreciate it if parents could write a few generic letters addressed “Dear Student..” (not addressed to a particular student) that give a positive message related to staying safe on Prom night. Letters can be dropped by the Attendance Office and ask for them to be put in Katherine Walton’s box by May 10. We know it’s a lot to ask, but the reassurance of love and safety is beneficial. Example can be found here: Sample letter. Thanks for your help in encouraging our students to make healthy choices.

College Entrance Testing

It is time for Juniors to sign up for the SAT or ACT. It is best to sign up for two tests in the Spring. If you are planning to do test prep, it is a good idea to get started on that as well. The College and Career Center is offering one class, but there are also a lot of other options.
