We should all have a friend that can support you through everything. Valletta T. is a very good example. She is so pretty and kind and amazing and we have so many fun memories. This past year has been so amazing and she is super positive through everything and lights up a room when she walks into it.
I think we should all really be kind to everyone and support everyone at this time. My friend Maggie C. has really done that and been very helpful to me. She always puts a smile on my face and makes me laugh even when I am feeling sad. We all need a friend like her. She is amazing and smart and talented and I couldn't of asked for a better person to be friends with.
Thank you to the teachers working so hard at home. We appreciate you!
Love, The Lamb Family

Thank you for all you do to go above and beyond to support our school and students!

She goes above and beyond for not only her students but coworkers. She has the kindest heart, and gives the best advice. She’s an incredible counselor and Hixson is so lucky to have her!
Sarah Magruder,
She always has a smile on her face and is willing to lend a helping hand whenever needed. She’s an amazing co-worker with the most contagious laugh!

Middle school is hard, period - but somehow Hixson teachers, staff, and administrators make these kiddos feel safe, included, and seen. Thank each of you for all that you do, each and every day!

The principals at Hixson make the experience of middle school a joyful and supported safe experience! No one could ask for anything more. We love our principal and assistant principals.
Thank you Hixson principals! You tend, you lead, you inspire! ❤️🌱

Give yourselves grace during this time! You are doing a great job & we are very proud of you all.
Sending good thoughts to all Hixson students, teachers and staff. You all have done an amazing job adjusting quickly to change. I am proud to be part of the Hixson and Webster Groves community. Take a minute today to give yourself something positive ! From Katy
I appreciate all the teachers and staff!! Not only are they working hard for our students, they are caring for themselves, families and loved ones! You rock!!!
My kid helped me zoom a meeting with the disadvantaged pre-schoolers I read to weekly. And she did a guest appearance by playing her violin for them. They were thrilled with being serenaded.
Dr. Lee supports our students in every capacity. She loves them genuinely.
To all my friends-
Thank you so much for being the amazing people you are, every day.
Hi there, I hope that you are staying healthy and getting all your school work done! You are doing great and I hope that you are having a positive attitude with everything that you are doing. Have an amazing day.
Ange L., you always give candies and other little treats out to people around the school. We all really appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness! Thank you Ange!
I think we should give kindness to Ali S. She has been very positive in this hard time and keeps me smiling. She has very encouraging words that help lift up to my spirt when I am feeling down. It is very hard not being able to see friends and she texts me and keeps me from not being totally bored.
Thank you Ali. for helping me get through this tough time.
Stay safe!
I think we should give some kindness to Grace A. because she was very excited to go to new york and now all the plans are canceled. She has been very positive about it and is looking at the bright side of things. I think this goes to all the people who were getting ready to go on a trip and now you can´t. Just know you matter and it will all be ok.
Stay safe!
Hello I just wanted to tell you that you are amazing and don’t let anyone tell you different if you let someone tell you that you aren’t good enough then tell yourself I can do my best and push through that
Anna O., you are such a great friend and person. Whenever I am around you you make me laugh, and inspire greatness to everyone around you. You are smart, kind, funny and bring joy to everyone you meet! I am so lucky to have you as a friend. I love you so much!
Dear Lindsay,

You are an amazing, cool, funny person. You are always so generous and kind and easy to talk too. You are always entertaining and fun to be around. I really enjoy your company!
Thank you to everyone who worked selflessly to get food to families who needed it!
Thank you for bringing the "You Uplift" Kindness Wall to Hixson Middle School!

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! You can have all messages sent to as many faculty email inboxes as you’d like for Approval, and we can change or add to this list at any time.
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. Your Rotating Display will only display exactly what you choose to make visible.
You will have a back office ADMIN PANEL that will allow you to delete, edit, and approve messages (individually or in bulk).
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
