The student ambassadors from Jane Addams Jr. High School are excited to present our very first Virtual Parent University class; and what better topic to start with – Happiness!

Throughout the school year, positive psychology lessons are woven into the curriculum in every classroom. Whether it is practicing mindfulness, reflecting on a positive experience, getting in some physical activity, performing a conscious act of kindness or expressing a gratitude, all District 54 students and staff alike are given the time and opportunity to practice Shawn Achor’s 5 Happiness Tactics.

These students took it upon themselves to plan, coordinate and record this virtual class so that over the summer, families can connect with their children and reinforce these tactics from the comfort of home.
