High School Students Teach Connolly Students About Kindness

Thank you to the Glen Cove High School AP Government students who brought The Bucket Project to Connolly School today. The Bucket Project teaches the students the importance of spreading kindness through a social-emotional learning and community-building exercise. The HS students read the book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? This charming story teaches that everybody carries an invisible bucket to hold all their good thoughts and good feelings about themselves. Having a full bucket makes you feel good about yourself, while having an empty bucket leaves you with uncomfortable feelings. The students then created their own buckets and filled each other's buckets with words of kindness. This spread positivity to the rest of the students and teachers throughout the school.
