  • Are You a Bucket Filler??
     
    As an added component to our Pride Program, we will be looking to identify students and classes with character in other ways for the 2013-2014 school year. All students have been introduced to our theme next year, which is "Together We Can." With the focus more on teamwork, cooperation, and children working together towards a goal, we feel this added layer to our Pride Program will make it even better. With that said, all students will be trying to be a bucket filler, not bucket dipper. Please copy and paste the link below which explains the bucket filling idea in a short video.
