We are BEYOND GRATEFUL for our teacher, Ms. Escovedo. She is kind, responsive, hard working, and dedicated to doing the best she can for our kiddos while they are learning in this digital environment.
We can't wait until hugs are a thing again. She will be getting a big hug of gratitude from the Funk Family.
Ms. Audel is so dedicated! Thank you for keeping our family reading and learning!
Dear Ms. Howard, Thank you for being a great teacher. From, Sebastian
We love Mr. Lowery!! Best. Teacher. Ever.
I really liked Ms. Marquis' lesson on practicing how to communicate and say sorry!
Thank you, Mr Ransom, for all you do to keep your class on track and having fun! Your enthusiasm shows and that is special!
Thank you Woodlawn Staff for your dedication to your students this year, despite being amidst virtual learning! We love & miss you, & appreciated the chance to see many of you in person at the parade.
Thanks Kim Howard for giving Elias a great 3rd grade year so far, for your enthusiasm, & for encouraging him in who he is!
He especially loves lunch bunch, 😊 & was thrilled to actually see you in person at the Black Lives Matter Parade!
Mr Clegg, You are an awesome teacher. I like measuring math. Love, Sylvan.
Thank you, Mr. Clegg, for your encouragement and support of your students and for keeping caregivers well informed everyday!
Thank you, Miss O, for being a kind, supportive, and fun teacher!
Thank you to all the Woodlawn staff who work so hard to stay connected to the kids and adults in our school community! I don’t have enough words to express how much I appreciate and miss you all.
Ms. Howard you are such a fun teacher.
I love when Ms. Escovedo asks us questions during class.
Mrs. Janega has been so good at getting our kids moving when we are stuck inside and teaching them healthy habits. My learner has even started to wake up early to do his own Tabata exercises before school starts. It's inspiring.
Thank you Mrs. Howard for hosting your reading club lunch bunch. Jude has loved it and it's so nice to see him reading independently. Thank you for always encouraging him and working so hard to keep our kids engaged.
i really like the counseling lessons
Thank YOU Mr Clegg for teaching me!
Many thanks to Ms. Foreman for all your hard work and for going the extra mile to host lunch bunch!
Thank you, Ms. Teri, for making my student laugh during class! He enjoys learning with you, even at a distance!
We are thrilled to have Mr. Lowery as a teacher! He has been an amazing leader during this stressful year. Thank you, Mr. Lowery! ❤️
Ms. Janega's parkour lessons have inspired the whole family to take adventure walks. We've even found some of our favorite curbs. Thanks for giving us a new way to look at our neighborhood and have fun!
Kim Howard makes my kiddo laugh and feel loved everyday. What an amazing teacher! Thank you Ms. Howard!
So much to love about Mr. Clegg--his enthusiasm, his care for families, and, above all, his belief in our students. Thank you Mr. Clegg!
Miss Peterson and Ms. Escovedo - thank you for helping me figure out second grade this year! - Teacher Anne
School is fun I like the book A to Z mysteries we read in class! And Mrs. Howard is a good teacher!
Ms. O is amazing. She has made virtual learning fun. Her kindness makes class great.
Mrs Howard makes coming to class fun!
Teacher Anne is doing an outstanding job with distance learning! We especially appreciate her bringing materials to our door, and that she spends lunchtime with the class. We appreciate her hard work so so so much!!!
So thankful for Ms. Escovedo. Not only did she swing by our house to drop off a spelling packet, but she also stood in the pouring down rain listening to me go on about my second grader for much longer than she may have planned. Thank you LaPrincea!
Mr. Lowery is ROCKING IT as a virtual teacher...even making time to actually MEET his students.
Woodlawn teachers go ABOVE and BEYOND! THANK YOU!!!
I am thankful for Ms. Mary and Ms. Tianna- the energy, effort and LOVE that they put into their work each and every day radiates within our building and into the Woodlawn Community! Thank you Mary and Tianna!

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
