What is Bucket Filling?

Bucket Filling is a concept that teaches the importance of having empathy for others.

Bucket Filling teaches us to recognize good qualities in self and others.

The invisible bucket becomes the universal symbol of compassion and caring.

The rewards of Bucket Filling motivate intrinsically and extrinsically .

How does it work?

From Friday‐Thursday school personnel will acknowledge students who have “filled a bucket” by writing their name on a bucket filler slip. Slips must be brought to the office and placed in the decorated bucket by Thursday afternoon. On Friday morning of each week, eighteen students will be announced. Students will receive a certificate of recognition. Winners will also choose one classmate who will sit with them during lunch at the “Bucket Fillers’ table” on Friday of that week.

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 new 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.

In addition, if you have any questions regarding our counseling program, please contact me by phone at 910‐449‐8000 or via e‐mail at Heroes School Counselor.
