Lakes kids ‘fill buckets’ with blankets

This year the students at Lakes Elementary School have been working on a new concept: bucket-filling. “Bucket fillers” are those who help without being asked, give hugs and compliments, and generally spread their love and good feelings to others. In contrast, “bucket dippers” rob us of happy feelings by refusing to help with a task or by saying or doing unkind things.

This past Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, Mrs. Jenks’ third-grade class decided to be bucket fillers by warming the hearts of others in our community. The children made fleece blankets that were donated to North Kent Service Center.
