SAS students learn about Scottie Awards
October 17, 2016 - On
October 14, SAS students were treated to a story about kindness, read
by Principal Henry
Freedman. Mr. Freedman read the book How Full is Your Bucket For
Kids by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer.
The book, based on the adult version, explains to children that we
all have "invisible buckets of water" over our heads. When we are
unkind to someone, or someone is unkind to us, our bucket empties.
However, when we show others kindness, or kindness is shown toward
us, our buckets fill up.
After an enthusiastic reading of the story, Mr. Freedman asked
students what they could do to "fill someone's bucket." He furthered
the discussion by explaining the Scottie Award System, where
students can be awarded a Scottie, by showing their classmates and
teachers kindness, following the school rules, being a good role
model and showing respect.
The students were very excited when Scottie, himself, came to visit
them at the end of the assembly!
