     Bucket Filling Initiative
    Switlik Elementary School is committed to creating a 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.*** Each month a student will be chosen from every class to be the bucket filler of the month.  They will get their picture taken and posted on the school web page.


    Your child will need a backpack that will hold a 9 x 12 folder.  Please make sure your child’s name is on everything that comes to school.  (They tend to forget what they own)  ** Please have your child bring in a water bottle with their name on it.   Also, it will be beneficial if they have crayons, pencils, scissors, and glue at home for homework.   

     Class Wish List

    Wipes, Ziploc bags (gallon and quart size), black thin dry erase markers, playdoh,

     tissues, water bottles ( if your child forgets their water bottle), smarties candy:)
