Optimistic Household

The mission of Peoria ROE48, a community partnership committed to a world-class education, is to nurture every child to become an inspired learner, a well-rounded individual and contributing member of a global community by striving for excellence within an environment that fosters innovation, respect, engagement and intellectual inquiry.

Longstanding student success at Peoria ROE48 is a credit to the combined efforts of our immense teaching talent and commitment present by each student’s families.

Why is Optimistic Household Important to Your Family?

Research demonstrates that for children to succeed requires positive influences on each and everyone of them to ensure their social and emotional needs.

Optimistic Household is a series of six interactive modules from Shawn Achor, bestselling author, speaker and renowned Harvard expert in the field of positive psychology. Positive psychology focuses on the positive events and influences in life, including:

  • Deepens student, family, and community development

  • Positive experiences (like happiness, joy, inspiration, and love)

  • Positive states and traits (like gratituderesilience, and compassion)

  • Positive households (applying positive principles within families)

These modules were designed for families to foster learning and social emotional wellbeing at the highest levels for students and help students develop skills that will help them become resilient and resourceful learners, who are able to adapt and demonstrate grit as they face academic and other challenges. 

This work will assist our collective goal to ensure the success of the whole child grounded in the belief that each child deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, positive, supported and optimistic utilizing comprehensive approaches and programming. ROE 48 is so pleased to be able to share this opportunity and important information with our families.
