Project Citizen Awardees

The 7th grade students at Manatee Academy are advancing on to the Project Citizen State competition after earning 1st place for their project, “Center of Attention”.  The students conducted thorough research and interviewed both professionals and city officials alike to establish an action plan that would encourage the production of more venues and family-oriented events at the Civic Center and throughout St. Lucie County. Recently, the students presented the plan before City Council with high hopes of their support. Best wishes to Mr. Young and his students as they move on to states!

Autism Awareness

For the month of April, the 7th grade students at Manatee Academy K-8 used their PBIS day to recognize student diversity!  As a way to celebrate Autism Acceptance Month, the students enjoyed music and laughter together, wore blue in solidarity, and painted murals which pieced together to form a beautiful jigsaw puzzle. #AutismAwareness
