Principal's Message

Gratitude

“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
All of us 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. 
Kim Webb has graciously donated Gratitude Journals to our students.  These journals are used weekly as part of our school’s wellness focus on building our resiliency and reducing anxiety. Kim has also donated her time working with each class supporting children in personalizing their own journals. Here is some of the research Kim has done on the concept of gratitude: Thank you Ms. Webb!
People who are grateful report increased feelings of happiness, hopefulness, positivity, energy and overall life satisfaction. 
Gratitude helps kids feel better about school and makes educators feel less emotionally exhausted
Studies have found that keeping a gratitude journal can increase people’s happiness and overall positive mood
Grateful children are more interested and satisfied with their school lives, are more kind and helpful, and are more socially integrated. 
Studies have found that gratitude journaling in the classroom can improve students’ mood and that a curriculum designed to help students appreciate the benefits they have gained from others can successfully teach children to think more gratefully and to exhibit more grateful behavior
Gratitude has been described as “social glue” that fortifies relationships
Research suggests that gratitude may be associated with many benefits for individuals, including better physical and psychological health, increased happiness and life satisfaction, decreased materialism, and more
According to this research, people who practice gratitude consistently report a host of benefits:
Physical Stronger immune systems Less bothered by aches and pains Lower blood pressure Exercise more and take better care of their health Sleep longer and feel more refreshed upon waking Psychological Higher levels of positive emotions More alert, alive, and awake More joy and pleasure More optimism and happiness Social More helpful, generous, and compassionate More forgiving More outgoing Feel less lonely and isolated.
