     Dear Parent/Guardian:

     

    Today Ms. Patty Campbell, School Social Worker, and I, enthusiastically reviewed our character development program called Bucket Filling.

     

    Bucket filling is an easy-to-understand concept: Everyone carries an invisible bucket that holds our good thoughts and feelings.  When our buckets are full, we feel happy and when our buckets are empty, we feel sad.

     

    Children quickly understand that they can fill buckets when they do and say things that are kind, considerate, caring, and respectful.  They also learn that when they are mean, inconsiderate, uncaring, or disrespectful, they dip into buckets and remove those good feelings.  Even the youngest child understands that actions and words can either fill a bucket or dip into it. 

     

    During this school year we are encouraging, reminding, and recognizing everyone’s efforts to be bucket fillers at home, at school, and everywhere they go.

     

    We are excited about this new program and look forward to your support.  If you would like to learn more about bucket filling, visit the Bucket Fillers website, www.bucketfillers101.com.  Bucket fillers offer a free weekly e-newsletter for parents and teachers. Also, please contact Ms. Campbell or myself if you have any questions about the program.

    Sincerely,

    Stephanie Stam

    Estimados Padres/Tutores:

     

    El día de hoy la Srta. Patty Campbell, Trabajadora Social Escolar y Yo revisamos con mucho entusiasmo el programa de desarrollo llamado: Llenando una Cubeta o Balde.  

     

    El concepto de Llenar Cubetas es fácil de comprender: Todo el mundo lleva una cubeta invisible que mantiene nuestros buenos pensamientos y sentimientos. Cuando nuestros cubos están llenos, nos sentimos felices y cuando nuestras cubetas están vacías, todos nos sentimos tristes.  

     

    Los niños entienden rápidamente que pueden llenar la cubeta cuando hacen y dicen cosas que son amables, consideradas, cariñosas y respetuosas. Ellos también aprenden que cuando son malos, desconsiderados, insensibles, o muestran falta de respeto, se sumergen en las cubetas y eliminan estos buenos sentimientos. Incluso el niño más joven entiende que las acciones y palabras pueden ya sea llenar la cubeta o sumergirla.

     

    Durante este año escolar nosotros estamos animando, recordando y reconociendo los esfuerzos de todos para poder llenar las cubetas en la casa, en la escuela y en donde quiera que ellos vayan.

     

    Estamos muy entusiasmados con este nuevo programa y esperamos contar con su apoyo. Si le gustaría saber más información adicional acerca de cómo llenar una cubeta, visite nuestra página web www.bucketfillers101.com. Los Llenadores de Cubetas les ofrecen un boletín electrónico semanal gratuito para padres y maestros. También puede contactar a la Srta. Campbell o a mi si es que tiene preguntas acerca de este programa.  

     

    Atentamente,

     

    Stephanie Stam

    Directora Escolar
