Fairfield students observe How Full is Your Bucket


Fairfield Local Elementary School recently had a special week called How Full is Your Bucket where students and teachers in grades K-4 discussed how they are each responsible for filling buckets (being kind to others) and not bucket dipping (being mean to others). Each day the students and staff focused on certain individuals who they wanted to fill buckets for (family, friends and strangers). Some student activities included class discussions over character content, giving compliments, making cards for friends and families, and ended with a building wide sock drive. The sock drive was called Warm Hearts & Toasty Toes, where the goal was to warm 2,000 toes (200 pairs of socks). At the conclusion of the drive the school actually raised enough socks to warm 10,290 toes (1,029 pairs of sock). The school donated all of the socks to the Highland County Homeless Shelter to be handed out during the winter months. In one photo students are shown holding socks and the trash bags full of socks. Pictured in that photo are Karsyn Grooms, Jaylin Allgood, Patrick Hughes, Jaylee Hurless-Miller, Kayla Thomas, Fairfield Elementary Principal Katie Streber, PBIS/kindergarten teacher Ali Vesey, intervention specialist/PBIS Mandi Jones and Tammy Delong from the Highland County Homeless Shelter. In the other students in Mrs. Young’s first grade class are shown with their Christmas cards.
