Welcome to the Three Good Things Initiative!

The Bounce Back program is partnering with faculty and students at Buffalo High School / Students Stepping Up (SSU) to encourage happiness and well-being within our communities.

We want our communities to be the happiest, healthiest communities possible. It’s a big goal, but one we think is very possible and simple.

The Three Good Things Initiative is based on a positive psychology tool which simply asks participants to reflect and share three good parts of their day for 14 days. It takes no more than 5 minutes each day.

» Text @bounce2017 to 81010 by October 15 to be part of the 2017 Three Good Things Initiative.

» You’ll receive a request to sign up for the Remind app.

» You can sign up as a student, parent, or teacher – just pick a category.

» You’ll first receive a link that will direct you back to this page on the Bounce Back website. Please complete the survey below so we can follow the impact the Three Good Things Initiative has within our communities.

» Each evening you’ll receive a reminder text from the Remind app to submit your Three Good Things. Beginning on Day Two, you’ll also receive another text that provides you with a link to the comments from the night before.

» At the end of the two weeks, you’ll receive another text from the Remind app asking you to complete a follow-up survey. This information is very important to us.

Thank you again for participating and being a part of this event!
