TRIBES - A New Way of Learning and Being Together
A TRIBES school is a learning community where teachers,
administrators, students, and parents all enjoy the mutual respect
and caring essential for growth and learning. The Tribes process
uses four agreements that are essential to building community and
establishing a positive environment for learning.
The Agreements Are:
 Attentive Listening
 Appreciations/No Put Downs
 Participation/Right to Pass
 Mutual Respect
The Bucket Filling concept:
 Each of us has an invisible bucket that is constantly
being filled or emptied, depending on what others
say or do. When our bucket is full, we feel great. We
fill buckets by saying or doing things to others to
increase their positive emotions - when we do this we
also fill our own buckets.
 We dip from others’ buckets by doing or saying
things that decrease their positive emotions – we also
diminish our own. It’s an important choice – one that
profoundly influences our relationships, productivity,
health, and happiness.

  • 6. The Bucket Filling concept:  Each of us has an invisible bucket that is constantly being filled or emptied, depending on what others say or do. When our bucket is full, we feel great. We fill buckets by saying or doing things to others to increase their positive emotions - when we do this we also fill our own buckets.  We dip from others’ buckets by doing or saying things that decrease their positive emotions – we also diminish our own. It’s an important choice – one that profoundly influences our relationships, productivity, health, and happiness.
