Alice Carlson ALC: Rooted in 30 Years of Applied Learning

Cluster Leaders Needed!

Room 1 (4th Grade) is planning Clusters this fall. They have already polled students to find out what they are interested in, compiled responses in a Google Form for volunteers to see, and reached out to parents who showed interests through the PTA sign-up sheet. Way to go, Room 1! Please see their email to you below:

Attention 3-5 Parents,

We need your help leading Enrichment Clusters this fall! Enrichment Clusters are a time for students to learn about a topic of interest. Parent volunteers are important to help make this happen. Clusters will begin on Friday, October 14 and continue through December 9. Clusters will meet every Friday, except October 28, from 2-3. Some topics that students are interested in are listed on the google form. Please help us make Enrichment Clusters a success! If you have any questions, please email Room 1 at

Additional After School Fall Clubs

We received a great deal of positive feedback for offering after school opportunities at Carlson so we have added two more for fall! This is not a fundraiser for the campus. This is our way of building partnerships with the community and providing you with on campus experiences after school hours.

You will sign up in the same way as Enrichment Intersession. Google Form Links are below and will open at 6:00 pm on Monday, 9/26.

We are currently securing dates, times, and options for the spring so you have all information at one time.
