A student presenting their oceans project.

Students in fifth grade spoke to inform and influence listeners about ocean plastic wastes. They used the Positivity Project trait of perspective to understand the world from multiple points of view.

Students used these skills to learn new information and broadened their perspectives.



Two students, at a lectern, sharing their poems.

Our second-grade students work together to create poems by working in a group to achieve common goals. They demonstrated the Positivity Project trait of purpose by working to be part of something greater than themselves.

They were very brave when they shared their poem with the entire second grade.


Ethical and Global Citizen

Students outside at Recess

This group of students are displaying empathy and respect for each other.  They are showing the Positivity Project trait of social intelligence. Recess can be a difficult time, but these girls were working together to make everyone feel included.

We are proud of the hard work that our Brookfield Broncos do every day.


Creative and Critical Thinker

Students at a STEM lab.

These creative and critical thinkers are working in the STEM lab. They are engaging in inquiry and the design of innovative solutions to their problems. They are displaying the Positivity Project traits of curiosity and open-mindedness.

They are becoming more thoughtful each day because of their hard work.


Goal-Directed and Resilient Individual

Students at a Spelling Bee

Here are students who persisted to accomplish a difficult task by participating in the Spelling Bee. Each student attended practices. They studied on their own time. And then in February, they competed in the spelling bee in front of their classmates.  They are demonstrating the Positivity Project trait of self-control.

They are becoming more resilient each day because of their hard work.
