To all my JH Seminar Students:
You have all been amazing & hardworking this semester! Thank you for making the best out of this situation. Thank you for expressing gratitude and kindness each day. I've enjoyed each class period with you. Keep focusing on the positive, have a growth mindset, be Internet Awesome, stay solution-focused, and always be you. Thank you for a great semester!
We are, undoubtedly, in the middle of a line of thunderstorms. But amidst those storms, let us take a few minutes to find the rainbows.
Thank you Keira Woods for being one of my rainbows this semester.
Thank you Faye Klein for all your hard work to learn and work with students on our reading program. You make a huge difference!
Thank you, teachers, counselors, principals, custodians, etc who keep school a fun, safe, clean, and exciting place to go. Teachers keep lessons fun and exciting, counselors help us during difficult times, principals keep us safe and set fair rules, custodians keep our campus clean, and every other staff member does the same. THANK YOU!
Thank you to all the wonderful teachers, counselors, principals, custodians, etc who make school fun and exciting. Without teachers, there would be nobody to make lessons exciting and fun. Without the counselors, there would be nobody to reach out to. Without our three principals, there would be nobody to set strict rules, so school is safe. Without custodians, nobody would keep the campus clean.
“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

(Great tech assignment for students!)
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
