Happy Cinco de Mayo!
All of our teachers and support staff are so very appreciated!
Thank you for all you do to go above and beyond to support our school and students!

Maybe in distance-
But never in heart.
Friends are like stars. You may not always see them, but you know they are there!

Thank you so much Miss. O for being there, and to all my friends for helping me. All the teachers here are great and I miss all of you. I hope you have a wonderful day! It is going to be hard to leave and go to 5th grade. Always stay safe.
You got this!
You are doing a great job! Keep it up 🙂

Wash your hands and wear your mask, and we will see you soon. We got this.
Great job everybody who is doing remote/e-learning! Be sure to never give up, have a positive attitude, and be patient with your self!
Shout out to Ms. Stevens because she is an awesome teacher and she always thinks positively. She is trying so hard during e-learning to teach her kids the best she can. She is the best teacher anyone could ever have!
This is a shout out to all our parents for learning all the new technology and helping their children through this unsettling time. We appreciate the communication and flexibility on their part. Hang in there!
Sawyer is so kind and such a good friend. She is checking on her friends and video chatting them. She is very sweet and generous.
We are so proud of all our students and their family during this time. We know all will eventually be back to a normal routine. Until then, do your best and ask for help from your family and teachers and our Community. We are here for you. Love and every blessing.
HUGE thank you to all the teachers who have gone above & beyond for making the transition to e learning smooth for both the students & parents! Each day it has become easier to navigate google classroom as we become more familiar with this new way of learning. My kids miss their teachers & classmates so much !
We're all in this together!!
Thanks to Dr. Ozimek for your daily messages to start our e-learning days. Teachers and staff, we appreciate all your hard work and commitment to keep the learning going during this time. Together, we will beat this!!
You are awesome!
Thank you for all of your hard work, ARS staff! We know the transition to e-learning has taken a lot of time and effort from your end, and we appreciate everything you have done to make it as easy as possible for your students and their parents. Your hard work has not gone unnoticed!
Yayyy for all the fantastic teachers reaching out and video chatting with students!! It takes so much courage and risk to jump out on a limb, and you're doing great!!! The kids love it!
Never give up because great things take time. When the world says give up, try it one more time. Don't let a stumble in the road be the end of your journey. You've made so much progress, keep at it!
Hang in there. We've got this!!
Thank you to all staff for their patience and flexibility as we move to e-Learning. This is a prime example of what it means to be a lifelong learner!
Thank you for bringing the "You Uplift" Kindness Wall to Algonquin Road School!

Website Embed Feature
This feature provides your Tech Team with a simple line of code that would allow you to embed your Rotating Display of Positive Messages into your school website, so that visitors can instantly see your messages.
Social Media Share Feature
This feature places Social Media Share Buttons on your entire Kindness e-Wall webpage or just on your Rotating Display only – whichever you prefer.
Yes! There are no Sign-Ups and no Log-Ins required in order to participate, as we collect no data or information of any kind. The platform is currently being used by large and small school systems throughout the country in almost all 50 states, and it has passed 100% of all school privacy regulations to date.
Yes! Many of our schools do this, because if your students take to it – then the messages can begin to overflow your school email inbox at times. Not only will a separate gmail account prevent this from happening, but you can also make it accessible to all faculty members if you choose to.
You can either cast your Kindness Wall link from any internet device to any TV monitor via a chromecast or Apple TV device, or you can place your Kindness Wall link into the browser of any Smart TV that displays the internet browser. After doing either of these, then you can simply click the FULL SCREEN MODE button on your Kindness Wall, and your Rotating Display of Approved Messages will scroll non-stop and will update itself with newly Approved messages every 10 minutes.
Yes! You can edit the text of any message before Approving it. In addition, if you’d like to keep a message but would like to remove an included image… or if you’d like to keep an image and remove the text, then you can do this before Approving the message. Your Rotating Display will only display exactly what you choose to make visible.
If you still have the original email that the message came in on, then you can return to that email and access the Approval Page for that message and click the Delete button. This will override your initial Approval.
If you do not still have the original email that the message came in on, then just copy/paste the message to us, and we can jump in the back office and remove it for you – no problem!
We can provide your Tech Team with a simple line of code that will allow them to embed your Rotating Display of Approved Messages onto your school website, so that they are visibly scrolling whenever anyone comes to your site.
The schools with the highest participation are those that provide their students with 5-10 minutes a week (during Homeroom, Character Education type classes, or classroom downtime) to use the Platform to submit positive messages about one another. They will then display their Rotating Display of Approved messages via classroom Smart Boards during Homeroom or will have a TV monitor in their cafeteria or commons area where all of their Approved Messages are scrolling all day long for everyone to enjoy.
The system is set to display the 100 most recently Approved messages, as older messages start falling out of the rotation in order to make room for the newer messages. However, we can increase or decrease this number to be whatever you’d like it to be.
Yes and No. Your Kindness Wall is a web app, but it is not located in an App store. However, this link shows you how you can easily turn your Kindness Wall into an app for any android or apple device: Phone Web App Instructions
