Meet Plato Koukouvaiya. He is the Owl in Residence (OIR) at Socrates Academy, a public charter school in Matthews, North Carolina. Plato enjoys his job as the OIR and has been asked to visit classrooms and report on the exciting things happening in grades K—8. Plato reports to Miss Priganc, the school Principal, and will provide weekday updates of what is happening at Socrates Academy. Plato will also attend events and share important information with the Socrates community to help everyone stay informed.

Plato Koukouvaiya is the oldest of 3 owlets. He has a younger sister named Athena and a younger brother named Aristotle. His mother, Maia, is a writer and likes to share her stories with children. Plato’s father, Hephaestus, is a firefighter in the family’s hometown of Owl Canyon, Colorado. Plato misses his parents and siblings as he is far away while here in Charlotte, but they talk and email daily. They will be reading Plato’s updates while he is at Socrates.

Plato is an energetic owl and loves to play when he is not working. He enjoys reading and is excited to participate in the Socrates Academy Read-A-Thon this year. Make sure to say hello when you see him around campus! Plato loves to make new friends.
