Positivity Project (P2 Time)

P2 time is part of every classroom, every day.  Teachers lead activities, conversations, and lessons around weekly character strengths.  P2 time allows New Era staff and students to collaborate and work together by creating a cohesive learning community.  It is grounded in the thought that other people matter and help our NE family focus on ways to improve the lives of others and thus our own life.  Students and staff alike love this time!
