Bucket Filling

  • Strausser is a BUCKET FILLING School!

    I have begun introducing our students to a character-development program called Bucket Filling. 

    Bucket Filling is an easy-to-understand concept: Everyone carries an invisible bucket that holds your 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 a bucket 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 either "fill" a bucket or "dip" into it. 

    During the school year we are encouraging, reminding, and recognizing everyone's efforts to be Bucket Fillers at home, school and everywhere they go!

    We have found this program to be successful and look forward to another year 

    of Bucket Filling at Strausser!
