Tucson, Arizona (KGUN) — A new program is coming to Rincon High School from the last week of September.
The Power of Positivity program, or POP for short, is conducted with the help of teachers seeking to raise the morale of their students after the Covid-19 pandemic. Every day, teachers take time to teach and explain to students that being positive comes from within. They use techniques such as introspection and journaling to improve the culture of the campus.
In a statement, Rincon principal Alyssa Welch hopes that this will foster a culture that will help students return to classroom life.
“Culture is intentional. When we come back, Rincon has always had a positive culture, but this year we feel it’s different, so we can’t just let it happen.
That’s why we deliberately focus on this and take a certain amount of time to bring that culture back to what we feel is a positive culture, “says Welch.
She also continued to talk about how students want to accept the program in an open mind.
According to TUSD, research shows that positive thinking for two minutes a day for 21 consecutive days can create different ways of thinking and change your thinking.
