We are a community of learners dedicated to making our learning environment a
GREAT place to be!  

We are Bucket Fillers!

In our classroom, we will work hard to be "bucket fillers", not
"bucket dippers"! But what are "bucket fillers" and
"bucket dippers"? We read the book
How Full is Your Bucket? for Kids

This book tells the story of how everyone, all over the world, carries an
invisible bucket with them. The way that we treat others can fill their
buckets when we are kind, or we can dip from their buckets when we use unkind
words and actions. Other people can fill or dip from our buckets too. On the
first few days of school, we spent time learning how we can fill other
peoples' buckets and learning how to avoid dipping from them!

During this school year we are encouraging, reminding and recognizing
everyone’s efforts to be a bucket filler at home, at school, and everywhere
they go. We are excited about this and look forward to your support.


How do you fill a bucket?

Showing respect by always treating others the way that you would want to
be treated
Helping others when they are sad, hurt, or need assistance
Including each other
If someone is lonely ask them to play
Saying hello
Introducing yourself
Show appreciation
Sticking up for each other
Be kind and caring
Say hello
Ask someone: how are you doing? or how is your day going?
And so many more...

What is dipping?

This is what you don't want to do because when you dip into a bucket you take
out good feeling and thoughts, which empties others buckets and it empties
your own. It makes your and others feel bad.

Calling people names
Making fun of someone
Leaving someone out
Hurting someone's feelings
Hitting, punching, kicking, pushing, or pinching
Not showing respect for others and things around you
