Alameda High School

The Alameda Point Collaborative still has spaces available in its Farm2Market community supported agriculture spring subscription program.

The Alameda Free Library is seeking community members interested in reading aloud as part of the library’s upcoming Community Banned Books Reading Marathon. The library is seeking volunteers to read for up to 30 minutes at a time during the main library’s open hours between September 22 and September 28. Readers may participate as individuals, as a small team or group, and can read once a day, daily or several times in one day. The library will provide carts of banned and challenged books from which to choose.

Alameda High School opened in 1902. For decades, the Alameda athletic rivalry was with the Berkeley High School. Their respective team names – the Hornets and the Yellow Jackets – are an echo of this long-standing competition. The creation of Encinal High School, which opened as a freshman-only school in 1952, began to supplant that rivalry on September 30, 1955, when Alameda and Encinal played their first varsity football game.
