I find delight each day in the things that happen at Robert C. Parker School. I hope to share a little of the fun!

Sophia was a great Head-for-the-Day (her parents were the highest bidders in the Live Auction on Saturday.) She greeted students in the front hall, pulled the alarm for the fire drill, and decreed an extra recess with popsicles for all. In a bold move, Sophia delineated a proactive Crisis Protocol in the event of 11-year-old, Freddy the Frog's death - she decided that one of the K-1's frogs, Lippy, Tiny, Spotty, or Skippy could be promoted to Top Frog, with attendant greeting (and eating) duties.
Sophia and friend Marissa joined me for lunch at Alexis Diner - a perk of the job that comes once annually during Head-for-the-Day. We had fun!
I became Head of Robert C. Parker School in 2003. I love walking the halls at school and watching the kaleidoscope of activities and the happiness and fun of the students and teachers. Parker's woods and meadows bring beauty into our lives each day. It is a great community - everyone pulling together to make a difference for children!
Robert C. Parker School engages each student in a thoughtful and challenging learning process that inspires curiosity and a passion to achieve, nurtures confidence and community, and cultivates purposeful action.
