Public School Appreciation

Edgewater NJ –   ONE UP ALL Foundation has petitioned National Calendar to create PUBLIC SCHOOL APPRECIATION MONTH.  

There’s an official National Ice Cream Day, a National Grandparents Day, even a National Hounds Day.  Funny, there isn’t a day to celebrate school kids especially Public Schools and public school students. Until now.


One Up All Foundation has petitioned National Calendar to establish a “National Public School Appreciation Month”. 


The goal is recognizing in a more public way the often beleagured public school system. A system that educates the majority of America’s leaders, workforce, communities, and innovators of tomorrow.


The Appreciation Month would span from mid-August to mid-September, taking into account different state’s back to school start dates nationally. 


Notes Foundation founder, Marla Currie, “This is a recognition long in coming. One very well deserved.  A  National Thank You so to speak.  This is the kind of morale uplifting initiative that these public schools deserve. Students in often non-enriched schools need to know that education is valuable and worthy of public recognization.


Continues Currie, “I’d like to see schools nationally embrace that appreciation month. To take time to pat themselves on the back for personal and group hurdles met and steeling their will for the challenges for the school year ahead. 


One Up All believes positive messages however delivered uplifts spirits. 

The Foundation advocates the use of Mindfulness Practice and Sound Therapy to positively impact student academic and behavior. 


“Here’s to America’s Public Schools, Teachers, and Students.  Stay posted for the formal announcement.”

Public Schools Get Essay Help

Edgewater NJ – One Up All Foundation has launched a free college essay review program for juniors and seniors in select schools in NYC and Newark.


The program, ESSAY ASSAY, is in direct response to the recent Supreme Court ruling eliminating race as a factor in college admissions. 


That action makes writing a strong college entrance essay more important than ever.


Even more, some schools are now not giving aptitude tests like SAT scores undue weight either.  Again, making a strong college entrance essay critical.

The ESSAY ASSAY program allows nonenriched school students to upload a 600-word college entrance essay and get expert feedback from a professional business writer.

The program generated the interest of Adelphi University‘s Board Chair, Marc Strachan, and their Admissions Officer who early on realized just how important college-entrance essays are to getting accepted into college in 2023.  Newark Public Schools have expressed genuine interest in participating in the program. 


ESSAY ASSAY is administered by and hosted on the learning platform, WRITING FOR BUSINESS Lesson Series.  


WRITING FOR BUSINESS is a business writing and proficiency lesson series focused on both sales and marketing disciplines. Visit their eLearning Platform to LEARN MORE.

Urban Students Get Pro Reviews

Edgewater NJ –  One Up All Foundation is excited to announce that in partnership with the WRITING FOR BUSINESS Lesson Series, reviews of urban students’ college entrance essays will be offered. 


ESSAY ASSAY is a free program for college-bound students in response to recent rulings on Affirmative Action that removed race consideration in college admissions. 


ESSAY ASSAY’s goal is to improve under-privileged students’ chances of college admission with the strongest entrance essay possible. 


Business writing experts make suggestions for student consideration about essay theme, tonality, structure, and grammar.  Review is promised within 10 days.  English language only.   ESSAY ASSAY is an ambitious trifecta of public-school students, school administrators, and volunteer professionals.


The importance of the entrance essay has never been greater.  Beyond the crippling SCOTUS Ruling, traditional metrics like the SAT are losing importance.  The essay is one of the few post-academic levers available for college hopefuls.


“ESSAY ASSAY is a wonderful opportunity for nonenriched students to receive invaluable essay feedback,” notes Marla Currie, founder of One Up All. “We’re very pleased with early enthusiasm from stakeholders.


“We’re actively soliciting crowdfunding donations to support this ambitious public-school program. If you agree ESSAY ASSAY is needed, please support us. All support is greatly appreciated.”


ESSAY ASSAY is a pilot program limited to juniors and seniors in select public schools in the New York City metro area. WRITING FOR BUSINESS is hosting the initiative on its eLearning platform.
