#OtherPeopleMatter

The vision of the Positivity Project at Stone MS is to create citizens and leaders who will enhance our communities and country by internalizing the belief that “Other People Matter.”

What is the Positivity Project?

The Positivity Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping America’s youth build stronger relationships by recognizing the character strengths in themselves and others. Their vision is to create citizens and leaders who will enhance our communities and country by internalizing the belief that “Other People Matter.” The movement is based in the tenets of Positive Psychology.

How can you help?

We would love for you to take an active role in your child’s character strength education. By using the character strengths vocabulary and having discussions about the concepts, you will help your child understand the character in themselves and others in a different light. You can follow our social media handles to see what we’re doing each day – and please feel free to reach out for more information or visit www.posproject.org
