IMG_9748ClearWater Academy sent last month out with a bang, celebrating March Madness Week with days of fun activities for the students.
March Madness Week celebrated sports, friendly competition and physical fitness. It all kicked off with a poetry recitation contest focused on sports, and there was a Webquest contest, mapping contests, a pep rally and daily team sports competitions.
They had a number of guests visit during the week to share how teamwork and competition play a role in everyday life.
Mike Holmes, the owner-operator of multiple Chick-fil-A stores in Peachtree City, discussed teamwork in the workplace, and Al Mead, a Paralympian and pastor of New Hope Church, talked about his athletic experiences and not letting physical challenges prevent you from achieving your dreams.
On Tuesday, the school got a visit from Daniel de los Reyes of the three-time Grammy Award winning Zac Brown Band. He demonstrated the importance of teamwork in creating music and showed the students how to create their own music. He is building on his passion for sharing music with children by starting DayGLOW Music, a local school that will incorporate music, specifically percussion instruments, as the main tools in an innovative youth music education and development facility.
The week capped off with Field Day at the Tyrone Rec Center, along with an awards ceremony. They were joined by members of the Trinity Christian School Honor Society who served as team supporters sharing their team spirit with the students.
