Field Trips

We have a great many field trips between now and the end of the year.  These trips are made possible by your continued support of school-wide fundraisers.  Thank you for your generosity in enriching the educational experiences of all our kids.  Below are some things to remember about field trips:

  • Please remember on field trips to not send lunches with peanut or tree nut products to help keep all our kids safe.  
  • Chaperones must be cleared in advance of the trip and register in the office before departure.
  • Field trips generally happen rain or shine.  Please help your child to dress for the weather.
  • Please review with your child the importance of following directions and maintaining a safety attitude while out in the field.

Bucket Filling with Ms. Sara

It’s all in the bucket, that invisible bucket that follows you everywhere. . . teaches young readers valuable lessons about giving, sharing, and caring. This guide to daily happiness, though, is not just for kids. We all need reminders of the benefits of positive thinking and positive behavior. It’s an important lesson to teach and remind us all . . . that showing kindness and appreciation of others goes a long way to making this world a happier place for everyone, including ourselves. A classic tale, beautifully told and beautifully shared.” -Emily-Jane Hills Orford, Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews
 
While using a simple metaphor of a bucket and a dipper, author Carol McCloud illustrates that when we choose to be kind, we not only fill the buckets of those around us, but also fill our OWN bucket!   Conversely,when we choose to say or do mean things, we are dipping into buckets.  All day long, we are either filling up or dipping into each other’s buckets by what we say and what we do. When you’re a bucket filler, you make the world a better place to be! This 32-page picture book is perfect for children,parents, grandparents, teachers and people that want to teach empathy, nurture kindness and create a positive environment in their home, classroom, workplace and community.

I’ll be visiting every classroom at Adams to share this wonderful book and teach out kids how to be world-class bucket fillers! 

~ Ms. Sara, Adams Counselor
