Bucket Fillers is a program based off the educational programs of Merrill Lundgren, the Bucket Man. The children's book Have You Filled a Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids, by Carol McCloud is based on his programs and pioneering work in schools.
Once again Parkway School will attempt to create a Bucket Filling school and community where kindness, respect, thoughtfulness, and good will toward all will prevail. Each month we will highlight a theme that will promote a community where all children grow to be confident, resilient, caring, and responsible.
Please ask your children the theme of the month and check on our website to find out how you can foster those character traits at home. It is our hope that we are able to strengthen, encourage, and support families to be Bucket Fillers. Through this school-wide program we hope to make bucket filling a habit and way of life, resulting in individuals with a full bucket who are healthy mentally, emotionally, and socially.
