Bucket Fillers

This year at Rummel Creek, the students are learning to be Bucket Fillers.  They are doing 50 random acts of kindness to fill others' buckets.  As a school, we have had several big bucket filling activities.  One of our activities was sponsored by the K-SHAC Team and the Student Council.  We collected warm clothes, shoes, gloves and hats for students at our sister school.  We collected more than 300 items in just over three weeks.  Our sister school (Sherwood Elementary) was so excited to receive the warm clothing before the Christmas holidays.  Today, we delivered 10 boxes of food, paper goods, cleaning supplies and fresh fruit to our custodial, cafeteria and crossing guard staff.  We were able to do this because our parents and students collected Turkey Bucks back in November.  We were able to fill the buckets of 10 families.  We also participated in the "Giving Tree" for some of our families. Parents and students were able to select names and items that the child wanted for Christmas.  Our giving tree was very successful.  It is very important to help the students at Rummel Creek learn to give back to their community.  Rummel Creek students - we're so proud of you doing good for your community.  What a great way to celebrate 50 wonderful years!
