Public School Appreciation Campaign

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 advocated the use of Mindfulness Practice and Sound Therapy use in public schools as an alternativer tool in the academic toolbox. Disciplines can tribute to improved student academic and behavioral performance. 


“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, was created 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 has generated the interest of Adelphi University‘s Board Chair, Marc Strachan, and their Admissions Office who early on realized just how important college-entrance essays are to getting accepted into college in 2023.

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

Metro Students Get Expert Essay Reviews

ONE UP ALL Foundation is excited to announce that in partnership with the WRITING FOR BUSINESS Lesson Series, free reviews of college entrance essays will be offered for a limited time.

This service is being provided at no cost to college-bound students because of recent rulings on Affirmative Action that remove ethnicity consideration in college entrance. The Foundation’s goal is to improve under-privileged students’ chances of being accepted into their desired colleges with the strongest essay possible.

Business writing experts will make suggestions for student consideration about theme, tonality, structure, and grammar.  Reviewers will not write, nor rewrite essays. Only a single review is given per user.  Essays must be 600 words or less. Review is promised within 10 days.  English language only.

According to Marla Currie, founder of One Up All Foundation, “It’s a wonderful opportunity for students to receive valuable feedback on their essays. We’re hoping for a good response. But mindful that the need is there, so the response might be overwhelming.”  The program will be limited to junior and seniors in the New York City metro area initially.

“We encourage urban high school students in that area to take advantage of this opportunity and submit essays for review”, notes Currie.
