The Positivity Project
This year at St. Ann, we have been using the Positivity Project in our classrooms as a way to teach our students about the character strengths that they possess. Each week, there is a new character strength that the students learn about. The motto Other People Matter is the foundation for the program. Look here each week for information about the character strength of the week. Next Friday, January 26th, in addition to there being a kick-off for National Catholic Schools Week, students will also be involved in a Positivity Project assembly. Parents are more than welcome to attend the assembly and learn more about what we are doing with this program. The assembly will take place in the afternoon during the time usually set aside for hall prayer.
