“Each Friday we pick one student from each class and the rest of the students write messages about them. We then display the messages on our Smart Boards. The kids love it!”
– Elementary School Principal (IN)
“Our staff is completely on board as this is the ‘go-to’ activity during any classroom downtime. We have our messages scrolling on classroom Smart Boards, cafeteria monitors, and on our school website, as this has had the most positive student response to any program we’ve implemented in my 30 years of teaching.”
– Middle School Guidance Counselor (VA)
“This is the first thing our students do at the beginning of their Character Education class each week. The kids have dubbed it ‘Thoughtful Thursdays’ and can’t wait to see their messages in the hallways and cafeteria.”
– High School Principal (IL)
How It Works
Works With Any Device
Step 1: Submit
Students, faculty, and parents use your school's customized "You Uplift" Positive Submission Form to anonymously submit positive messages about one another. Positive pictures, quotes, and animated gifs can also be submitted.
(Because all messages are submitted anonymously, there are no "logins" required, and we do not gather any information of any kind. Therefor, the platform falls within all school privacy terms and conditions.)
Step 2: Approve
All submitted messages go directly to the email inbox of any participating faculty member(s). The faculty member(s) will choose if the message will become visible by clicking the APPROVE or DELETE button.
(This guarantees that ONLY positive messages of your school standards will ever become visible!)
Step 3: Display
The "You Uplift" software will automatically customize all APPROVED messages with your school colors and logo, will place them into a digital rotating display, and will generate a live URL link for your display.
(This allows you to display your positive messages exclusively inside your facility via facility monitors. This also gives you the option to display your positive messages outside of your facility via school website, social media, mass emails, and digital newsletters.)
