Bucket Filling/Dignity for All Students Act

  • DIGNITY FOR ALL 
    The goal of The Dignity Act is to create a safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and focus, rather than fear being discriminated against and/ or verbally and/or physically harassed.  All public elementary and secondary school students have the right to attend school in a safe, welcoming, considerate, and caring environment.

    What is a Bucket Filler?
    We all carry an invisible bucket. This bucket contains our feelings. When our bucket is full, we feel great; when it’s empty, we feel empty. A bucketfiller is someone who says or does nice things for other people. By doing this, they are filling other people’s buckets and filling their own bucket at the same time. On the other hand, a bucketdipper says or does things to cause other people to feel bad. This simple but profound philosophy applies to every aspect of life.
