More

Everyone at Oak Ridge Heights is a Bucket Filler. Bucket Filling is a character education format that we utilize at Oak Ridge Heights. In the beginning of the year the students are introduced/reintroduced to the concept of bucket filling. A bucket filler is somebody who is respectful, kind to others, helps others, etc. When they do these acts of kindness, they are filling others' invisible buckets. People can dip into buckets by not making good choices, hurting others' feelings, etc. Students are taught how to be a bucket filler and how to make good choices. Teachers throughout the year do various activities that reinforce the concept behind bucket filling to build a positive environment for the students. Students throughout the year work with various grades and do bucket filling activities together.
