Mr. Stanley Dunlap - Community Engagement Award
Thank you for getting our band out in the community and engaged in activities. Over the past couple of years, the band has participated in community Veteran Day celebrations, Night to Unite hosted by O'Fallon PD, Belle Fair Conference, OTHS Holiday Concert, and most recently, the City Fest Parade.
JAMS is excited to announce that our Community Engagement award for this week goes to Ms. Watkins. Her coaching skills and continued support of many of our sports teams is incredible. Aside of teaching, she finds many hours to keep our sports teams competing in our community, creating a positive image of our JAMS school. My advanced band students supported an overwhelming vote for her as well.
Back to School Foam Party!

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.

Upon your request, we can replace your current Anonymous Submission Form with a Form from your school’s email system (ex. Google Form). This makes messages come to you with the author’s email address included, and you simply COPY/PASTE the message onto your INSTANT POST Page in order to make it live.

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.
