In our class we will be embracing 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
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 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.
During this school year we will be encouraging, reminding, and recognizing everyone’s efforts to be bucket
fillers at home, at school, and everywhere they go.
We look forward to your support.
