For the past 2 weeks students from our 3 year olds to Grade 9 have come to the learning commons to read, “Have You Filled A Bucket Today?” with Ms Guzzo.
After some discussion time the students walked around and either drew or wrote how we can be bucket fillers and what it means to be a bucket dipper. Students also wrote notes to friends and family members who have filled their buckets.
At CIS it is very important we have a caring and kind community! Our students are masters of knowing how to spread kindness and happiness to each other. On a daily basis students and staff fill each other’s invisible buckets around our hearts!
You fill a bucket when you show love to someone, when you say or do something kind, or even when you give someone a smile. That’s being a bucket filler.
A bucket filler is loving, Caring person who says and does nice things to make others feel special. When you treat others with kindness and respect, you fill their bucket.
But,you can also dip into a bucket and take out some good feelings. You dip into a bucket when you make fun of someone, when you say or do mean things, or even when you ignore someone. That’s bucket dipping.
Bullying is bucket dipping. When you hurt others, you dip into their bucket. You will dip into your own bucket, too.
Many people who dip have an empty bucket. They may think they can fill their own bucket by dipping into someone else’s… But that will never work. You never fill your own bucket when you dip into someone else’s.
But guess what? When you fill someone’s bucket, You fill your own bucket, too! You feel good when you help others feel good.
