This past Wednesday, November 29th, the Middle School at Matthews Hall all got together to talk about gratitude. We watched a scientific video about how showing gratitude makes us not only happy but it also makes others happy. After watching the video we separated into our houses (GO OXFORD!!) and went to the four corners of the gym to write down what we were grateful for at Matthews Hall. I wrote down that I was grateful for making so many amazing friends that support me no matter what and that the teachers here take the time to get to know each and every one of us, which really makes me feel safe. All students were given a challenge: to show gratitude throughout each day to their peers and their teachers in order to make Matthews Hall a better place.
