Thank you MSA Teachers!!
Mark Sheridan Academy celebrates all of its staff on this special week. We are all teachers at MSA! And for all the parents and family members helping educate our students at home during the closure, Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to you too! Teachers are a special, caring, extraordinary group of real people that do tremendous things day after day. Thank you! 👏🏼
The MSA teachers are true educators and life long learners. Before the school closures, remote learning was something we knew existed but not typically in CPS. The staff has rose up and met the challenge head on! The teachers “taught” themselves and worked very hard to prepare themselves for this new adventure. Happy Teachers Appreciation Week!! 🍎

Hang in there! <3
This will be a time that we will always remember. One good thing that i will remember from this is all the support from my friends and teachers. Also how much we realized how much school impacted us. Even before this all started, if you were saying things like "I don't like school" or "School is boring" you now realized how important it is.Stay healthy Wildcats!
Thank you parents and families for stepping up in such an amazing way during this difficult time! Teachers appreciate you!
I want to give a great big shout for our custodians!!!! Today we had a inspection of our facilities and we were told that this is the BEST school they have seen!! We want to thank Mr. Herb, Ms. Lucia, and Ms. Ibed for making our school shine. Thank you!!!
We miss you and can't wait to see you all again.
Mr. O'Connell & Mrs. Creed

(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
