The Connection of Positive Psychology
Prior to the beginning of this school year, the Campanelli staff shared a shorter version of the Orange Frog parable based on the foundations of the Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. At the beginning of this school year, Campanelli families received a copy of The Orange Frog Family Reading Guide. This year we are bringing The Happiness Advantage to life at Campanelli School by focusing on the different happiness habits. You can refer to page 77 in your Orange Frog Family Reading Guide to learn more about all of the Happiness Tactics & Habits. Our staff is working closely with students in each grade level to connect our Social Emotional Learning standards and the principles of positive psychology as outlined in the Happiness Advantage.
In November we will be focusing on practicing gratitude and mindfulness with meditation. Our Happiness Committee is dedicated to ensuring a home-school connection with this work. For example, look for a calendar coming home to discuss with your child these important learning opportunities.
Did you know that our PAWSativity Club is in full swing? Ask your child if the students have spread some happiness to their classrooms yet. The power of positive psychology, mindfulness and gratitude couldn’t be more relevant and interconnected in our daily lives. We thank you for your support.
