Building Better Schools
Improving School Culture through Gratitude
Gratus is an app that adds kindness and humanity into the curriculum of educational institutions. School is difficult – teachers are under appreciated while students are often lost in the crowd, but Gratitude makes everything better by integrating empathetic communication as part of a routine writing task. From a simple “Thank you” to a long letter of appreciation, students will exchange compassionate messages to fellow classmates or teachers, spreading everlasting ripples of appreciation around campus. Gratitude – bringing joy and teaching life’s greatest virtue.
Gratus features are simple and easy to use!
Students show gratitude for their teachers and peers.
A simple thank you, or recognition can go a long way. Share gratitude and build each other up with sharing positive statements.
Students can upload weekly gratitude statements show appreciating for teacher & fellow students.
After submitting their statements the teacher can approve or send a suggestion revision to the student wether it’s a spelling or grammatical error its the teachers discretion to request an edit.
Each gratitude statement is first reviewed by the teacher.
This prevent un-wanted posts by students so they can be easily filtered by the teacher. If a statement is not formatted correctly or improperly worded a teacher can deny and the student must fix the errors.
Create events as a teacher or student
Any teacher or student can create an event in the app. Teachers will be able to coordinate events and attendance. Student created events will first have to be approved by their teacher.
