Mrs. Christine Mocha is an amazing teacher. She is going above and beyond to make sure that choir continues and thrives in this online school environment!
I would like to extend our appreciation to all VHS staff and volunteers. My daughter's teachers are doing such a remarkable job in keeping her interested, focused, disciplined, etc. in her virtual studies during this pandemic. Our daughter continues to be in good academic standing, thanks to her amazing teachers. I would also like to welcome our new principal, Dr. Getz.
Thank you to all Teachers, Staff, and Administration for all of your hard work this very interesting year. I know you are putting in double the work, but it has not gone unnoticed. You are heroes!!
Thank you for all of your dedication and hard work with teaching and taking care of our kiddos! You all ROCK!

I was struggling to help a student navigate the Sora app and get her book for Lit Circles. I asked Mrs. Butera for help and she came right away to assist this student and even stayed to help my next class period get their books, completely unscheduled. I am so grateful for her!
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
Teachers who can create a positive bond with their students, will leave a life long impact in their lives.
Thank you teachers and staff for being so supportive and understanding during this pandemic. When a teacher shows compassion to students, it means SO much to these kids. Although they are teens, they still need to feel loved, nurtured, and cared about. It makes all of the difference in the world to them!
All our best, The Bender Family (Bryan, Susan, Jamie & Carly)
To all Valencia staff and student Vikings,
As both a parent and educator myself, I cannot express enough the amount of support I have seen among our student community as well as Vhs staff to both students and parents. Together, you have shown that no matter how strong the fire, wind, power outage or pandemic - we are truly Viking Strong! Thank you so very much!

We all know distance learning isn't easy on anyone especially you! Thank you for your continued dedication to our kids during this time! We appreciate you!
These quotes may have been written by others, but they go right to all Viking's hearts:
Be strong, because things will get better. Though it may be stormy now, it never rains forever.
It will never be easy, but it will always be worth it.
When you focus on the good, the good becomes better.
The VHS PAC is amazing!
Hello to ALL of our SUPER VIKING STUDENTS!

I hope that you all are doing well and staying safe.
Stay Strong and Study On for this too will pass.
The VHS Department Chair Team is AWESOME!

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
