Good Afternoon Plato Academy St. Petersburg Families,


I hope each of our Plato families has had a wonderful summer thus far!  Keep creating those life-long memories!


As the days and weeks continue to whirl by, I would like to provide some information on a few upcoming dates and school related activities.



Supply Lists

All information pertaining to supplies is available on our school website at:


Teacher postcards/letters

Homeroom teachers will mail their letters/postcards the week of August 10th.   At that point you will know your child's teacher.  Also, rosters will be posted outside classroom doors at our OPEN HOUSE.


Student uniforms  

Risse Brothers, our uniform provider, will be honoring the tax-free shopping week from August 7th -16th so if you still need uniforms this is a great opportunity.  Also, you can take advantage of tax-free weekend when shopping for school supplies.


Open House

Open house will take place on Thursday, August 20th from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm. This is when you can meet your teachers and explore your new classroom.  Your teachers will have packets of information for you that night.  Please bring in any supplies that evening as well to help with the first day of school.



The first day of school is on Monday, August 24th.  All students need to be in their classrooms by 8:40am.  Arrive early as I am sure parking and car line will be especially busy during this morning. 


The earliest students may be dropped off, unless enrolled in Before Care, is 8:15am and 8:40am is tardy.  For the safety of our children, please do not drop your child off prior to 8:15am as there will be no staff present.



Our PTO will be set up at Open House to help you sign up to be a part of this amazing support group.  Please be sure to join, even if you cannot make all the meetings. 



I am excited to begin this school year and am very proud to lead an amazing campus of staff, students, and families.  Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you soon.
