New Jersey Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco recently visited Randolph Middle School to participate in the Project Wisdom program and issue a positive message about character education.
Assemblyman Bucco created a video with a positive message which has been broadcast to students this month.
RMS School Social Worker Kari Costello said that every Tuesday and Thursday, RMS broadcasts brief daily videos on its internal TV channel WRMS with special positive messages about character, respect and kindness. The assemblyman said he was honored to participate in the program and thanked RMS Principal Dennis Copeland for welcoming him to Randolph Middle School.
Other community members who have read positive messages include Interim Superintendent Jennifer A. Fano, Randolph Mayor Roman Hirniak and Randolph police officers.
Randolph Vice Principal Michael LoRicco said that the Project Wisdom initiative was created by the school safety team in an effort to take a proactive approach on how RMS students act and treat others on a daily basis.
“Project Wisdom intends to build character education to better help students understand, care about and act upon core ethical values,” Costello said. “Project Wisdom aims to show that students with good character are caring, just and responsible. These students have developed an internal motivation to do their best and to contribute to the world around them. Project Wisdom also aims to show that good character education improves social and emotional competencies as well as academic performance.”
