       While teachers work hard to ensure students obtain the best academic instruction on a daily basis, we also believe it is important to take time to teach students to be good citizens who care for and respect each other.  We believe it is important to help build good character in all students.

      At MES, we call positive students "bucket fillers."  "Bucket Fillers" are those who help without being asked, give compliments, and generally spread their love and good feelings to others.  Bucket filling is a common act in our classroom and one that does not go unrecognized. 

      At the beginning of the school year, we read the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today?  This wonderful book explains to students that to fill a friend's bucket, they also fill their own bucket because it feels good to make others happy.  We also discussed what it means to be a bucket dipper.  A bucket dipper is a person who hurts other people's feelings, essentially dipping into their invisible bucket.  Ar MES we strive to be a bucket filler each and every day! 

      Have you filled a bucket today?

Be a Bucket Filler!!!!!!!!
Everyone has an invisible bucket.
You can’t see it, but it is there.
Its purpose is to hold your good feeling about yourself.
Be a bucket filler – Say kind words to others and your bucket and theirs will be filled.
