Project Wisdom - Character Education at IR



Project Wisdom is a character education program for elementary students, which includes one-minute messages read during morning announcements each day.  The messages introduce our students to the ideas of being responsible, respectful, and caring human beings.  Project Wisdom encourages students to think about the choices they make and the consequences of those choices.  Make it a great day . . . or not.  The choice is yours!


Themes for the month of March, 2015

Week of March 2-5 - “Choices: Choosing To Do What's Right"             

Week of March 9-13 - “Choices: Deciding Our Future"

Week of March 16-20 - “Self-Responsibility: The Choice Is Yours"   

Week of March 23-27 - "Success in School: Just Do It!"              

Week of March 30 - April 1 - "I'm Responsible for ME!"    


Actual message shared regarding "Role Models"


Good morning, Indian Rock faculty, staff, and students.  This is Dr. Gulley with a few words of wisdom.  Gandhi was a national hero of India, a man who made a huge difference in the world by teaching that being violent is not the best way to solve our differences.  Gandhi was a role model for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who also taught nonviolence.  In other words, what Gandhi said and did affected the life of Dr. King in a positive way.


Did you know that you don't have to be a world-famous hero to affect someone else's life?  In fact, you don't have to be an adult.  No matter what your age, you can be a positive role model.  That's right!  Being a positive role model just means that you set a good example for others to follow.  Today, be a positive role model by helping a younger student or setting a good example for your classmates or choosing to do the right thing even when its' hard to do.


With something to think about, this is Dr. Gulley.  Make it a great day . . . or not.  The choice is yours.
