Physical Education is fun for all!
I'm amazed by the joy Scott shares with us
Thanks Dave, for being a leader we can trust in these hard times
I'm amazed at the hard work that our Sped department does. They solve real problems for kids in really challenging circumstances. You can learn so much from watching how they do things
Don Farler amazes me daily. He deals with so many problems and challenges with a minimum of drama
Thank you Hannele for all of the plants
Thank you so much, Erin, for brightening the whole school
Thank you so much to Nick. It's amazing hearing kids so excited about math
I'm so amazed at our staff, like Kirk and Ayn, who are having so much happening in their lives, yet still being really present for the kids
Amazing work from our front staff. This ship would run aground without them
Hendy is such a great teacher, I'm always hearing from kids how great he is
Way to go, Jim. Thanks for keeping the Pack stats going
Go Toni! She has helped so many kids become amazing writers
It's amazing all of the lives Lando and Alviar touch over time, they spread goodness throughout our community
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!
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!

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
