AME celebrates Peace Day

Anna Maria Island Elementary School celebrates Peace Day and remembers Sept. 11, 2001, at a Sept. 21 celebration at the school. Students learned zero is a number, too, from Todd Persinger, center, as “Zero the Hero.” The character struggles to find value as a number and tries to change, but in the end realizes his value. The lesson: Students learn to accept differences in those around them, find value in themselves, and others.  Islander Photo: Courtesy Sharon Burgess
