Kelsey Stricherz has been interning here (with Mrs. Stevens) for the past few months. She recently started up a project with the younger grade levels to encourage the students to be more kind to one another. Mrs. Stricherz , along with the help of Ally Boomsma, Allison King, Shayla Muilenburg, and Clay Sargent, are teaching the K-6th grades about kindness this month. The younger students are learning how to be bucket fillers (and why you shouldn’t empty people’s buckets). The terms “bucket fillers and bucket emptiers” are used for the younger kids because it gives them an easier way to understand building people up and tearing people down. Every person has their own bucket, and you can either empty it, or fill it— depending on whether or not you are nice to people. Every Tuesday and Thursday morning there is an activity relating to the theme for the week. So far, they made “bee kind” bookmark magnets and wrote kind letters to put on their friends’ lockers. They are halfway done with their kindness project for this month, and they still have more fun activities planned. Their overall goal is to encourage kindness within the younger classes, and so far it is going well.
