CES Promotes Bucketfillers

This year, we are enthusiastically continuing a character development program called Bucket Filling. Bucket filling is an easy-to-understand concept.  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. 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.  In addition, we will be talking with our students about ways they can protect their bucket by keeping a lid on it.

 During this school year we are encouraging, reminding, and recognizing everyone’s efforts to be bucket fillers at home, at school, and everywhere they go. Thanks to the generosity of the P.T.A. each child in our school has their own bucket where they can receive messages of encouragement, as well as give them to others.

  We are excited about this new program and look forward to your support. If you would like to learn more about bucket filling, visit the Bucket Fillers website, Bucket Fillers offer a free weekly e-newsletter for parents and teachers.
