How Full is Your Bucket?

posted Sep 14, 2017, 6:08 AM by Shawna Ellis

Ask your child if they filled someone's bucket today! Bucket filling is using actions or words that show you care about someone.  Saying or doing something kind.  Giving someone a heartfelt smile.  Using names with respect. Helping without being asked.  The students at DFJ are working hard at filling buckets at school and we encourage you to talk about this with them at home.
