Positivity Project "Framing" Students' Mindsets at North Syracuse Junior High School
|Students and staff at North Syracuse Junior High School have kicked off their school year with a new collective and POSITIVE way of thinking! As new participants in the Positivity Project, the school’s community has adopted the “other people matter” mindset. The Positivity Project is a building-wide movement focused on teaching positive psychology’s 24 character strengths over the course of the school year.
A variety of activities have been planned to get kids connected to school & life, build relationships, teach empathy and create a positive, growth mindset. Students are learning to be positive, frame life in a positive way and lift others up by being role models for others.
The program focuses on a different character trait each week with activities planned around the trait. In an effort to involve the entire junior high community, student leaders created video announcements and signs with positive messages around the building. Additionally, students were invited to take photos showcasing their character strength.
