Alice Carlson ALC: Rooted in 30 Years of Applied Learing

Message from Liz

Dear Families,

Thank you for working with us to open Carlson in safe and responsible ways. It has been a wonderful first few days of school. As a reminder, we ask that you not enter through the cafeteria during lunch times. Please use the canopy call box and door. Come straight to the office once you state your name and reason for the visit. Teachers are not prepared to welcome anyone into their space if they do not have a tag from the office clearing them to be in the building.

Sheri and I had the opportunity to visit classrooms over the last two days and watched teachers sit in discussions about routines and expectations established by the class. They are planting seeds and guiding our students to be leaders of their learning. I may be biased, but we sure do it best!

Warm Regards,


Class Meetings

Please see the schedule below for your meeting date and time. Teachers will be sending out details in family letters.

New Year, New Staff Lounge

This summer's labor of love kicked off the first week back as a surprise for staff. There are no words that will ever truly express our gratitude for this new space.



Library Remodel

A cluster helped Robb design a student centered space. You raised the money for their vision at last year's auction. We bought the items and they are on the way. We can't wait to show you!

New to Carlson?

Navigating a new school can be hard, but like all things Carlson, we have a working solution. Two new families got together last year to bring the next crew of families a New Family Guide to Carlson- A to Z. We love it and so will you!


Auction Parking Spots

We have two staff spots in our parking lot purchased by parents on behalf of staff. Please do not park there. We have three additional spots purchased by families, for their family. Please do not park there either. Each spot has a sign and is painted purple. Families also have hanging car tags indicating that the spot belongs to them.

We ask that you respect the spaces purchased and not park in them before school, during school, after school, or when coming to campus for events.
