Principal’s Message- March 1, 2018

We are very excited to announce that March will be designated Happiness Month across District 54! Dooley is ready to make this our best month yet. According to Shawn Achor, the author of The Happiness Advantage, “When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work. Staff and students will be participating in various activities to promote both individual, classroom and building Happiness. During the month, you may notice your students using language such as, “being orange” or “positive habits.” These are all part of Shawn’s work and work that we have been implementing, with staff, across the entire District. During the 2018-2019 school year, we will be bringing much of Shawn Achor’s positive psychology to the classrooms as well as the community.  We look forward to an exciting month ahead!
