Announcing Little Red's Digital Kindness Wall!
Positive Submission and Display Platform

Starting today Teachers, staff, parents, and students can anonymously submit positive uplifting messages about anyone in the school. You can submit positive quotes, words of encouragement, appreciation, kindness, quotes, and animated gifs.

We will approve all submissions first before becoming visible. All approved messages will then be automatically placed into a rotating display so everyone can see.

As we encourage everyone to participate, please be reminded of the following:

  1. Messages are submitted anonymously, sender will not receive any likes or recognition for submitting the messages, rather you are submitting positive messages simply because you want to help someone. We are emphasizing the value of being kind to others. 
  2. Little Red Teachers, staff, parents, students can submit positive messages in general to Little Red, but you can also submit to a specific teacher, staff member, student, grade level, or team. Please be reminded everyone will be able to see them.

Some examples:

  • Yay, Little Red Families, you are the best!
  • I want to thank my ____ teacher for making me smile today.
  • I'm wishing my ____ grade friends a wonderful day.
  • A huge shut out to ____ for working so hard for all of us.

The links will soon be on our front page of our website as well.

Let's begin our Little Red Digital Kindness wall.
