CES Kids with Character


How full is your bucket?

Chapman Elementary kicked off our character education this school year by reading How Full Is Your Bucket? by Carol McCloud. This heartwarming book encourages positive behavior as children see how rewarding it is to express daily kindness, appreciation, and love. Bucket filling and dipping are effective metaphors for understanding the effects of our actions and words on the well being of others and ourselves. Among other actions, students can be sent to the office for a Wall of Fame award for filling someone’s bucket. Chapman Elementary students definitely have character!
