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

Days 2 and 3
On days two and three we had a typical Albany March swing in the weather. It snowed all day on Tuesday and into Tuesday night. Perfect for sledding! St. Peter's students shared songs in a variety of languages with the Pre K. They joined a practice for Spring Sing and attended art classes - some even having their faces plastered! Teacher Miss Katie shared a presentation about the habitat in Barcelona. Both she and Caroline visited in classes and observed Parker teachers. We wrapped up the day with a wild time in the gym playing games and enjoying delicious dishes brought by 4th - 8th grade families for a potluck supper. Kids from St. Peter's seemed to like mac n' cheese just like Parker kids.
On Wednesday the whole middle school trooped off to the Capitol and the State Museum. Upon arriving back at Parker, they headed out to observe the creek - muddy boots and all. I think it will be an early-to-bed night for everyone.
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.
