Here is some information about Bucket Filling -
This year we are enthusiastically implementing 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. 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. We are excited about this program and look forward to your support. If you would like to learn more about bucket filling, visit the Bucket Fillers website, www.bucketfillers101.com. Bucket Fillers offer a free weekly e-newsletter for parents and teachers.

|When we fill a bucket, we can add a warm fuzzy to our friend's bucket. Since being a bucket filler makes us feel good too, we can put a warm fuzzy in our own bucket, too!|
|This bucket was FULL of warm fuzzies this morning. Look at it now! :)|
