Have you filled a bucket today? This is the question that is being asked at Art City Elementary School, in Springville. At the beginning of the last year Mrs. Nielsen shared a book called “Have You Filled a Bucket Today?” with the faculty and staff. She told about a day when things had not started off well. When she got to school one of the students came up to her and told her how nice she looked. Instantly her day changed and her bucket was full.
The book talks about how everyone has an invisible bucket that needs filling; a bucket filler is someone who does or says something nice to you; a bucket dipper is someone who is mean to you or says mean things to you. This year Mrs. Nielsen is encouraging her students to be Bucket Fillers. When a student is caught filling another person's bucket the teacher writes that student's name on a form and places it in a bucket, on Thursday afternoon the teacher draws out of their bucket and sends it to the office.  On Fridays Mrs. Nielsen announces the Bucket fillers to come to the office for a picture and to write their name on a board.  This week's bucket fillers are(not in order):  Elijah, Spencer, Britain, Aurelia, Kati, Rylee, Mitchell, Andrew, Todd, Jane, Kelsey, Nate, Brandon, Gracie, Zac, and Jaedan.
