Have You Filled A Bucket Today?

In honor of Respect For All Week, PS 186 is Filling Buckets!!! Each child recently came home with a "bucket".   Parents were asked to "fill' their bucket with kind words about their child.  "Filling" your child's bucket each day helps build confidence and self esteem.  Let's help build strong and confident kids that are ready to take on the world!

February 10th - 14th is....

Respect For All Week

Please show your support for this initiative by wearing the following colors:

Monday  wear BLUE to represent RESPECT
Tuesday wear GREEN to represent HONESTY
Wednesday wear PURPLE to represent UNITY
Thursday wear ORANGE to represent FAIRNESS
Friday wear RED for LOVE and CARING

We encourage each child to imitate that characteristic on each day.  Students will be engaged in Respect For All lessons during the school day.
