A wonderful week

We were honored with the presence of a very special visitor this week, Swami Paramandan Ji.  This karma yogi from India visited in the K-1 and 2-3 classes and returned for an evening program on meditation and community service. 

The students were especially curious about the homes for orphans and homeless women founded by Swami Ji, and his meditation practices.  Both classes shared their technique of "finding their silence," a daily practice that focuses them during morning meetings.  Swami Ji commended them for being good and pure children.  He wants to take many ideas he saw during his visit at Parker back to the schools he has founded in India. 

Other highlights of the week:  avid readers in the library, film-making in Spanish class, and presentations this morning in Assembly on our recycling program.  And of course the excitement of having Kiki Cunningham as Head for the Day.  But more on that in a moment!
