Green Monsters - Alcott's Environmental Club

The Green Monsters Club is led by Mrs. Curley.  The Green Monsters are learning about the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling!  Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 are welcome to join.  The Green Monsters will continue researching endangered animals, and finding new ways for Alcott to reduce, reuse and recycle more efficiently.  

The Green Monsters are always looking for more members!  If your child is interested and in3rd, 4th or 5th grade look for meeting announcements in The Thursday Owl.


Past Green Monsters Projects

2016 Earth Day Parade Animal Puppet-Making Workshop

All students grade 3 – 5 are welcome to sign up!  Class size is limited, so sign up by the deadline! 

Students each design and construct their own animal puppet on a stick for the parade! We repurpose old plastic bags (and the wall covering from Monster Mash!) to stuff the puppets, then paint them. (Puppets are painted with acrylics – please make sure your child wears something that you won’t mind a little paint mishap).


  • Students will walk with Green Monsters teacher and chaperone(s) to The Umbrella after school. Pick up is at The Umbrella at 5pm.

  • Parents must send dismissal note for their child. On form under "Other" indicate: Puppet-Making Workshop

  • Please note The Thursday Owl for specific dates and times for this year’s event.

What to Bring

  • $5 Class registration fee (cash only)

  • An idea of what animal you want to make -- a picture is even better! This will help you hit the ground running when class begins to ensure you can finish your puppet.

  • A lite snack
