Thanks Dave, for being a leader we can trust in these hard times

Thank you so much, Erin, for brightening the whole school

BHHS staff-best wingmen ever!
Balwin, you are killin' it as a 1:1. Absolute love how much you are helping your student become more independent. You rock!
BHHS Staff and Admin: Thank you so, so much for the cards, flowers, treats, hugs, baskets, candy, kind and compassionate words, coverage, and checkups. Your love and support has honestly made this easier to deal with and just makes my heart so very happy.
THOUGHTFUL AND KIND HUMAN BEINGS YOU ARE!
I am encouraged by the teamwork of staff to rise to the challenge of doing technology backflips during Covid to bringing stellar teaching and lessons to our students via Zoom & GC. Staff collaborated and made quick videos to show others the ropes in tech. You all ROCK! Learning new TECH under a pandemic - all by yourself at home - certainly was challenging. Kuddo's to you all for not givin
All of you working with students, thank you. Every day I wake up and ask myself, what am I doing? The work and energy demanded physically and mentally continues to be a challenge. I cannot thank you enough. To show up, be prepared, and manage to find little and big successes is mammoth. To the adults helping the others adults (too many to list), you are greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks and much appreciation to Ayn Gore. She is setting records for how many of our students are completing Apex classes. It is wonderful to see students catching up. Thanks so much, Ayn. You are awesome!
To all the BHHS Prom chaperones… thank you for your sacrifice to allow students an opportunity to experience some normalcy. We are so grateful to have such caring professionals!

Grateful,
Dale
What an honor it is to work with this PACK of dedicated, caring, uplifting, purposeful group of educators!
A HUGE 'Thank You' to the BHHS Admin for bringing the YOU UPLIFT Kindness Wall to Black Hills High School!
Go Wolves!

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 choose one of three ways to display your messages onto a facility TV monitor.
  1. HDMI CORD – Some schools will access their Kindness eWall on a laptop and run an HDMI cord to their TV monitor.
  2. CAST – Some schools will access their Kindness eWall via a tablet or device and will cast it to their TV monitor via a Chromecast or Apple TV device.
  3. SMART TV WITH INTERNET BROWSER – If your Smart TV has an Internet Browser (Samsungs), then you can place your Kindness eWall link in the browser and it will run from there.
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.

You will have a back office ADMIN PANEL that will allow you to customize your colors, logo, title, and font size.
This is optional. The current default setting does not track who sent a message, as all messages are submitted anonymously. This is done intentionally, so that no student data or information is being gathered. This allows the platform to fall within ALL school privacy regulations.
However, we can add a Login Feature to your Kindness Wall that will require a user to log in in order to submit a message. This will allow you to know who is sending each message. In order to do this, however, the system must capture and store student email addresses, as these are what will identify the sender of each message. (Please check with your school privacy regulations before requesting this feature).
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 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.
Your subscription includes an unlimited number of messages and an unlimited number of displays for everyone in your school for the entire length of your subscription.
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
