We Are A Bucket Filling School
This year we are enthusiastically introducing a new character development Program called “Bucket Filling”
Bucket filling is an easy-to-understand concept: taken from the children’s book by Carol McCloud entitled,
Have You Filled a Bucket Today?
Everyone carries an invisible bucket that holds our good thoughts and feelings. When our buckets are full, we feel happy and when our buckets are empty, we feel sad. Occasionally we need to cover our bucket with a lid to keep others from dipping into it.
Children quickly understand that they can fill buckets when they do and say things that are kind, considerate, caring, and respectful. They also learn that when they are mean, inconsiderate, uncaring, or disrespectful, they dip into buckets and remove those good feelings. Even the youngest child understands that actions and words can either fill a bucket or dip into it.
To recognize some of our Bucket Fillers each teacher is ask to choose one student each week that has stood out as a Bucket Filler. These students are recognized each Friday and at the end of the 6 weeks 6 names will be drawn and those students will receive a $10.00 gift card.
Please help support our endeavors by encouraging your child to be an active Bucket Filler.
