Positivity Project - P2
Theme of the Week 10/24: Creativity
Next week is the character strength of Creativity.
WHAT DOES CREATIVITY MEAN?
You come up with new and original ways to think about and do things.
WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
Creativity has to do with intrinsic motivation - the work is accomplished to use your talents and potential, not to receive a reward. Creative people are happy to come up with lots of different ideas and can pursue them with energy and enthusiasm. Creativity helps us solve seemingly impossible problems, create things we never knew we wanted, and see the world in a new way.
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
To practice and encourage the character strength of Creativity with your child, please visit the Positivity Project’s P2 for Families (password: P2), where together you will watch a video, read a quote, and talk about the answers to three questions.
FAPS Sinking Fund Renewal
On November 8, 2022 Fenton Area Public Schools will be asking voters to consider renewing a Sinking Fund of .8707 mills for a period of 10 years. This renewal will not raise taxes, and will keep the funding levels consistent for the next 10 years. Please remember a sinking fund is to fund infrastructure projects or repairs as they arise. Please consult our website for more information on the projects that have been funded in the last three years with our last sinking fund.
