Parker Early Education Center kindergartners did something on Thursday that no other Kindergartners in the area have done before. They stayed for the full school day. The group of 60 students in the pilot program start at 8:10 a.m. and finish at 2:20 p.m. The full-day schedule is a hit with parents and students alike. This year’s class was picked by lottery. The school plans to hire nine new teachers in 2011 to support the excitement and growth of the full-day schedule. The students are excited to go full-day for reasons likes more recess, lunch at school and some were even excited because they get to stay all day like their older siblings.
