At Frank Elementary School we are continually working toward maintaining a peaceful and welcoming environment. We work hard to encourage positive interactions among all students Kindergarten through 5th grade. We offer the Bucket Filling Program here at Frank that is designed to promote a positive school environment.
The concept of Bucket Filling is that everyone carries an invisible bucket that holds all of their good thoughts and feelings. When our buckets are full, we feel happy. When our buckets are empty, we feel lonely and sad. Children understand very quickly that they can fill buckets by being kind, caring, and respectful to others. They also understand that disrespectful and uncaring behavior will dip out of other people’s buckets, or remove their good feelings.
Our Bucket Filling Program encourages respectful, responsible, and safe behavior. The following is a link to an informational website about Bucket Filling: http://www.bucketfillers101.com.
