Spreckels Scholars are Bucketfilliers!

Our Bucket Fillosophy is to help all students grow in kindness, self-control, resilience and forgiveness, all leading to a happier life. We teach the three rules that lead to greater happiness:

  1. Be a bucket filler. Be kind.
  2. Do your best not to dip. Don't be mean.
  3. Use your lid. Protect your bucket and the buckets of others.
