Dons Legacy Wall Bricks

Spring is here! And the Dons Legacy Wall will soon be adding a new batch of legacy bricks. Bricks provide wonderful and lasting way to recognize someone while helping support AHS at the same time. See the Dons Legacy Wall right outside the main office. It’s full of tributes to students, graduates, faculty, and supporters of Acalanes High School.

Ideas for bricks include highlighting a Dons family or upcoming graduate, a shout out to a special team or club, or a thank you to a person or organization that you’d like to highlight for their relationship to Acalanes.   More Information
