I just want to say thank you for the warm welcome and acceptance from all of the members in the McDermitt Combined community. Special thanks to the sophomores, Darla, Ryan and all of the staff for all of their help in learning my way around. I can't think of any place else I'd rather be.
To all my PE classes, do you miss the Mr. Smith power walk, what about the basketball shooting games? Let's do change of direction dribbling skills: and everybody yelling no shooting games! I miss you guys.... Weights class May was the month that you guys could not fit through the door way,you would have been way to muscle up...remember the system with self motivation you can reach that go
Hi everyone! In all my 30+ years at MCS, I have never experienced anything like these troubled times, with the pandemic and school closures. We have read about the Great Depression , but never thought we’d experience such difficult times. So here we are experiencing history, and what great stories we will have to share. I can’t wait to hear your stories! Mrs. Egan 😊
The the class of 2020,
I hope that once you graduate you make plans and strive to achieve all your goals. Life is short, so live big. I will dearly miss all of you. The way you made me laugh or just how your SENORITIS kicked in the first day of school. You are all kind and caring individuals who will do great things.
-Love and good luck

you are so sweet and will accomplish such great things as an athlete here at McDermitt. I loved playing basketball with you and cant beleive how hard you work and you are only in 6th grade. I look forward to all my years working at the school and getting to be around you!
This is my first year working at the school and I couldnt be happier. These kids and the staff are one of a kind. We had so many laughs this year and these kids surprise me all the time. They are so athletic, smart and so kind at the same time!!
Thank you for bringing the "You Uplift" Kindness Wall to McDermitt Combined 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.
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.
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.
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
