Positivity Project (P2)

What is The Positivity Project (P2)?

Of this, I’m Positive  beautifully encapsulates the essence of The Positivity Project (P2) — an organization dedicated to empowering America’s youth to build positive relationships by recognizing the character strengths in themselves and others. Their vision is to help schools and families cultivate citizens and leaders who will enhance our communities and country. Positive psychology’s scientifically validated 24 character strengths serve as its foundation. Positive psychology teaches that people have all 24 strengths within them – and that character is not just skills or behaviors, but rather an intrinsic part of each of us. 

The Positivity Project is being implemented district wide as a way for students to learn more about character strengths and how we can all display them each and every day. Here at HRES, teachers will use their daily allocated Morning Meeting time to discuss the week's character strength (see below for the district P2 topic calendar broken up by each quarter, which will be updated with informative parent letters each week).  

Please visit Positivity Project for K-2 Families here (password: P2) and Positivity Project for 3-5 Families here (password: P2) for more information on the Positivity Project and how you can keep discussion about character strengths going at home. Feel free to reach out to School Counselor Monica Ebert or MTSS Coach Jannelle Grey to discuss the Positivity Project further!
