Positivity Project @ Hortons Creek Elementary
The vision of the Positivity Project is to help create citizens and leaders who will enhance our community by internalizing the belief that “Other People Matter.” This goes hand-in-hand with Hortons Creek's #otherhawksmatter mindset.
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 not a program with strict guidelines. Instead, it educates teachers on the character strengths and relies on them to teach in a way that best meets their students’ needs. It is a school-wide endeavor, grounded in the consistency of daily classroom instruction. Their model is holistic; it incorporates students, educators, and parents through regular interaction with character strengths vocabulary and concepts.
