Positivity Project

  • Students create positivity project logo

    The Fulton City School District has implemented social/emotional learning lessons through grade six, and as students enter the Fulton Junior High School they will expand their SEL knowledge and begin to apply skills learned as they are introduced to the Positivity Project. In the transition from elementary to middle school, students will utilize skills to help reduce problem behaviors and promote safety, self-regulation, success and be a support. The Positivity Project will help FJHS students learn how to better apply those skills, such as with both social- and self-awareness, ethical decision-making and relationships. The project promotes character strengths, rather than defining weaknesses. The idea is to build one another up. A group of FJHS students will become Positivity Project Ambassadors, who will lead lessons to their peers as they define topics, share quotes, show videos and answer questions. The effort coincides with the district’s existing Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports initiative. This opportunity will enable FJHS students to build their own leadership capacity.
