Hello Earl Grey Families
“Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.” Henry Van Dyke
We at Earl Grey are very grateful for the support you as parents have shown the school. We are grateful for the dedicated and caring staff and are especially grateful for the wonderful students who come to Earl Grey each day. Being grateful has many of the similarities to the concept of resiliency.
Over the past twenty years as an educator, the stories that have fascinated me the most were about students who overcame tremendous odds to become successful in life. The reality that some students who experience family conflict, problems with friendships, bullying, and learning concerns manage to thrive, while others encounter great difficulty has fascinated researchers for some time. The ability for children to succeed in spite of challenges is called resiliency. Researchers have found the following five areas in a child’s life can make the difference whether they are resilient children or continually struggle:
Autonomy - Students who are able to see that they have the power to learn and make age appropriate decisions about their lives tend to fair better than those who don’t.
Sense of Purpose – Students who have goals and see the positive side of life where the glass is half full, not half empty tend to be more successful than those who have lost a sense of hope.
Social Competence – Students who develop skills associated with cooperative learning and friendships tend to be more resilient than those who lack these skills.
Problem Solving – Students who learn to think before acting are more likely to develop resiliency.
Achievement Motivation – Students who don’t give up, but keep on trying no matter what are in good shape to face the challenges that life will bring their way.
Morrison, G., Allen, R. (2005). Promoting Student Resilience. Theory Into Practise, 46(2), 162-169.
At Earl Grey School we are striving to support your children in these five areas through our focus on The Leader In Me: Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. We encourage you to talk with your children on how these five areas relate to the seven habits. Together we will support our students to become resilient and well prepared for whatever the future may bring!
Happy Thanksgiving!
