Principal's Message

Gratitude and Resiliency

Hello Earl Grey Families,
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life; it turns what we have into enough and more. It turns a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of the past, brings peace for today and creates vision for tomorrow.” Author: Melody Beattie
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.
This pandemic has shown us how resilient our students are. Children have been coming to school ready to learn each and every day. Students follow our established safety guidelines without complaint. Even though classrooms look and function differently and many of our special events and extra curricular activities need to be curtailed, children are excited to be at school. The children are demonstrating gratitude, the staff feels this gratitude and all of us are very grateful to our families and community for your continued support.
Happy Thanksgiving!
Matthew Lowe, Principal
