Switlik Is a
Bucket Filling School!
Switlik Elementary School is working towards a more caring and respectful environment. We are using the world acclaimed book by Carol McCloud, Have You Filled a Bucket Today- A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids in order to create a safer, kinder, more respectful school culture.
The philosophy is simple and is this - imagine everyone is born with an invisible bucket. The bucket represents a person's mental and emotional health. You can't see the bucket but it’s there and it is our responsibility to fill that bucket. When you say nice things, show respect, act in kindness, you are filling each other's buckets and, in turn, filling your own bucket.
Switlik Elementary school is working towards keeping our buckets full every day, thus resulting in individuals who feel healthy mentally, emotionally, and socially.
Be a bucket filler
not a bucket dipper!
