Attention All Alacanes Parents: Grad Night Volunteers Needed on June 8

Grad Night 2018 is in desperate need of parent volunteers! This incredible event offers a safe, fun atmosphere for students to celebrate all night long but it takes over 30 volunteers to make it happen! Junior, sophomore and freshman parents --  please consider “paying it forward” by signing up to help. The event is at Umigo Indoor Racing and Event Center in Livermore. We have lots of activities (both indoors and outdoors) and food trucks lined up but we can’t do it without your help!! 

There will be transportation available for parents from Acalanes to Umigo at 11:30pm. Parents will then ride the busses home with the students @ 3:30am. Sign up to help.

If you have any questions about the event please contact MaryBeth Towery and Nancy Curless at apcgradnight@gmail.com. Thank you for your consideration. We appreciate it!

Final Transcripts

Final Transcripts are sent free of charge. Your senior’s final transcript WILL NOT be sent to their college unless they fill out the Senior Exit Survey in Naviance. The survey needs to be completed by ALL seniors regardless of their plan for next year. Two and four year colleges will get transcripts.

Update Naviance

Please encourage your student to update their application status in Naviance, it would be greatly appreciated. The data they share is what the juniors will use for list building; this is where the Scattergrams data comes from.

Senior Exit Survey

ALL seniors must complete the Senior Exit Survey for the College and Career Center. This is where they request their final transcripts and how the C&CC gathers data for future years. Please remind your senior to complete the survey.

Voter Registration 

There are voter registration cards in the College & Career Center. Encourage your 17 or 18 year old to register.

Graduation Leis

The deadline has passed to purchase Graduation Leis. For any questions contact Gayle Burleigh
