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.

Graduation Leis

Purchase your graduation Lei for your senior!  Fresh Lei’s flown in from Hawaii just $22.  Go to Graduation Leis on the webstore.  Don’t be left out.  They can only be purchased ahead of time. Deadline is May 22nd.  Any question contact Gayle Burleigh.  And yes, both boys and girls wear them!

Senior Recruited Student Athletes

On Thursday, May 24, at lunchtime, Acalanes Boosters is proud to present a celebration of Acalanes' talented, hard-working student-athletes who have been recruited to play their sports in college (Division I, II or III) while continuing their educations.

Local media, parents, friends, AHS students, and the community are ALL invited.  There will be a group question and answer session, photo and interview opportunities, and other fun.

If your son or daughter has been recruited to play in college next year and he or she has committed to play, please contact Jennifer Larson for more information so we can include them in the celebration.  Your student-athlete does not have to play a sport that Acalanes offers, but the sport must be an intercollegiate sport (not club sport) at the school your student-athlete will attend.
