"Try to fill other people's bucket." Livvie Witt and Anna Cutler, former Horozons students and now on BHS's student council, advised our classroom. Through including others, letting others know what you appreciate about them, and by simply saying, "Hi!" you can fill others' days with happiness and good feelings. Through a series of activities, students had positive, uplifting interactions with one another. Perhaps the highlight was the "Tap Someone" exercise (above) that demonstrated "how much everyone in this classroom matters. Everyone is appreciated for who they are no matter where they go." Most of the class sat in a circle and closed their eyes while others took turns tapping their classmates who: Tap someone who has made you laugh; Tap someone who is kind to others;Tap someone who you enjoy spending time with; Tap someone who is very similar to you; Tap someone compassionate; Tap someone who is loves art; Tap someone who has good sportsmanship; Tap someone who inspires you; Tap someone who you trust; Tap someone who is a good friend; Tap someone who is a good listener; Tap someone with great ideas; Tap someone who can really brighten your day; and many more.
Anna and Livvie returned to Horizons as a way of giving back to a community that helped shaped them.
