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

Programmed to learn
I had a parade of excited Robotics Club kids racing in and out of my office this afternoon. They have programmed the robots to drive in a square - and one follows a black line using a light sensor. Just look at these faces! Next week: mastering remote control.
Math teacher Shelli Casler-Failing is in charge of Robotics Club. She gave presentations this weekend to NY State math teachers on using writing in math and bridge building. She is as charged up as the kids!
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.
