Our K-8 Plato Academy Clearwater students started off celebrating our last Friday in the 2017-2018 school year by leaving their own legacy at our school. Teachers and students have been inspired by the ONLY ONE YOU book by author Linda Kranz and created their own unique fish rock. K-8 students placed in our own “sea” their own creative unique rocks guided artistically by Mrs. Harvey S, while our 5th graders under the guidance of Ms. Lindsay, musically inspired all of us by singing “This is me” from the Greatest Showman

Our message to our future young leaders is that there’s only one you in this great big world. Make it a better place. The simple, yet powerful words that mommy and daddy fish share with Adri are meant to comfort and guide him as he goes about exploring the world. Our words of wisdom to our students are….
