On Thursday October, 19th, GES K-5 students will have a special and exciting performance by the Virginia Repertory Theatre company. We will be viewing their play Have You Filled A Bucket Today:The Musical.
This brand new, fun-filled musical from Virginia Repertory Theatre is based on the concepts in Carol McCloud’s award-winning children’s books, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? and Growing Up with a Bucket Full of Happiness. The books and play use the concept of a “bucket” to show students how to express kindness, appreciation and love to be “bucket-fillers.” The play focuses on the benefits of positive, thoughtful behavior. Have you Filled a Bucket Today: The Musical relays the joys of friendship and compassion for both the receiver and the giver. Help teach students to be bucket-fillers rather than bucket-dippers with this musical performance designed to promote healthy relationships, self-esteem, and bring character education to front-and-center stage at your school.
On Friday, students will sign a pledge to keep our school bully free by being a bucket filler!
