Good Afternoon HMS Families,
Our bucket filling program is part of our school’s approach to helping students develop positive, expected behaviors. The school uses a hybrid of PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) and HYFABT (Have You Filled a Bucket Today?) By Carol McCloud. Up until recently the bucket filling was limited to our classrooms but right after Thanksgiving recess we went to a whole school collection bucket near the front office with the idea of earning school wide incentives. Up until then, students in each class worked to fill buckets in their individual classrooms but now when a classroom’s small bucket is full, the class empties it into the large whole school bucket. Doing it this way allows teachers to encourage kindness, hard work, good choice making and following school rules by starting with a positive incentive at the individual level (receiving a pompom). The student can then contribute their pompom to the small classroom bucket to help the classroom community earn a classroom level incentive. Once the classroom bucket is full, the class empties their pompoms into the large schoolwide bucket. This allows individual students and later, whole classrooms to contribute to earning a whole school incentive.
Each pompom represents a celebration of a child’s achievement of the skills needed to be a positive role model and a valued member of our school community. The links below will help you find out more about the two programs which are highly compatible with one another.
