On Sept. 20, Parker School kindergarten and first grade classes enjoyed a visit from Parker Ranch cowboys and a horse named Chicken.

Cowboy Keoki Woods and Parker Ranch land manager Brandi Beaudet taught the students about being a cowboy, herding cattle and caring for a horse. On the lower school field, Woods and Chicken demonstrated for the young students some of the tricks and maneuvers cowboys’ horses can do.

Kindergarten teacher Jackie “Kumu Jackie” Sills said, “Keoki has visited Parker Lower School for the last seven years. It is a great way for the school and ranch to stay connected. We are thankful for their willingness to share.”

This month the kindergarteners are learning about animals and first graders are studying the Wild West, so this visit was an especially meaningful treat.

Beaudet, who delighted the students by giving them balloons, stickers and pencils, said, “As always, we too enjoy meeting with the children and sharing a bit of what we are about and what we do. We look forward to the next opportunity to visit.”
