Last one I promise. I know I've already written like 3 things, but I just wanted to thank a few more people: Molly Talbot, Roan, Bella Rose, nick, Doug, Bridget, and everyone else thank you for unforgettable memories. I have so many with each of you. i am thankful for you all and even for friends I've already mentioned. Remember to check in on your friends. Have a wonderful holiday!
I've known you since 6th grade, but we recently have been getting closer though the past two years. It's been so so fun from art class with Ms. Fisher, English with Ms. Bono, and gym with ms Blodget. It's been surreal, and I've had a great time goofing off with you in class and joking around. Thank you for everything, I miss you.

This year is almost over, guys. We've GOT THIS!!!! 🙂
To Mr. Martin, I am a student from one of your APUSH classes and I just wanted to say thank you for the words you gave us before our first ever test. After hearing "a grade does not define you," I felt sad and happy because those were the words I feel like I have always wanted to hear, but you were the first to say them to me after 16 years of living. Your words saved me this year, so thank you:)
Thank you to our custodians for keeping our school sparkling clean!
RHAM Paras are always there when you need them!
I am so proud of my students who show up EVERY DAY, even when it's sometimes so very hard. <3 Mrs. Lastrina
hey man 2020 is rough but its almost over

This year has been a mess but my friends have been amazing and so supportive. No matter the distance, no matter the fights, you guys have been there for me no matter what. Thank you for making me laugh and making time to hang out. Molly, Phoebe, Roan, Sasha, Charolette, Kaitlyn, Elyse, Bridget, and more. You all will have a special place in my heart forever.
I miss you guys!! Stay focused and work hard- it’s almost Xmas break! 🙂
2020 has been a very tough year, but it's almost over. It brought plenty of changes into our lives, most being unwelcome. Let's all hope those changes leave as soon as they came.
Shout out to my students, who have been so flexible and understanding through this whole year! - Ms. Clifton
Wishing everyone a happy, safe, and healthy holiday season!

Thank you for everything. I am a student with you this year, and I can't thank you enough. You always make learning so exciting, and leave me wondering with many thoughts about everything I could possibly think of. Class is so much fun with you, and you always come with a huge smile on your face. You make learning fun, and in your classroom there is no such thing as a wrong answ
We've been friends since 7th grade, and I can't thank you enough for everything you've done. You're a kind hearted soul, and
I know many of the RHAM staff and teachers would agree with me. Thank you for everything dude. You always bring a smile to my face. I love you dude.
In memory of Ms. Bono,
"Do not go gentle into that goodnight.
Old age should burn and rave at close of day.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way.
Do not go gentle into that goodnight."
Stay strong. n.l.

You make RHAM such a beautiful place! Every time I pull in, I can't believe I work at such a well-manicured place. Thank you for the trail work and the support for getting students safely outdoors and in even into the woods!
Thank you all teachers and staff members for all the accommodations you have had to make this year. You have made this year one of the best despite all forces against us!
Thank you AHM for being such a great partner with us here at RHAM High School. Your work is so important for our students and our community!

Cameron, thank you for the candy you gave me as I was going to my car on Friday. You could not know I just read 2 difficult emails, but please know your act of kindness made all the difference in my day. Thank you. Mr.K
During these difficult times, reflect on the social emotional teachings of elementary school, be a BUCKET FILLER, not dipper. With students being split up from friends, Remember the buddy bench-reach out to someone different and make a new friend, You’ll be surprised what it can add to your life once you give people a chance and open up! RHAM you’re amazing! Chose Love!
Thank you to the amazing faculty and staff of RHAM High School. We appreciate all of you and all of your efforts.
A huge thank you from the Skopas family 😊

(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
