December Highlights

Thank You for Your Support

Our district empowers students to be the visionary leaders we know they can and will be. However, we can’t do it alone and the community’s support is vital to the education of the whole child. I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the community once again for supporting the October 2, 2018 referendum which led to so many projects that will influence the lives of students in the years to come. These initiatives and enhancements will help Randolph continue its legacy of exemplary teaching and learning. 

We are nearing completion of all the projects approved as part of the referendum. We have been welcoming the community to several open houses to formally celebrate all of these spaces and enhancements. The new STEM lab and science rooms at the high school are nearing the last phases of completion. The Athletic & Wellness Center is receiving its finishing details as well.  

I have an important Save the Date reminder I would like to share. The community is invited to attend the official opening of the new Athletic & Wellness Center at Bauer Field on January 22, 2022 from 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 12:00 PM, followed by an open house for all members of the community to tour the facility until 3:00 PM. In the event of inclement weather, the tour will be rescheduled to January 29, 2022 at the same time. An update will be shared on the homepage of the district’s website the morning of the event.

We look forward to welcoming the community to the new Athletic & Wellness Center as well as additional open houses for other referendum projects in the future. In addition, I have shared a few photos from the various referendum projects that have been completed below. I hope you will take a few moments to go through the photos, and reflect on the significance of what you were able to accomplish as a community. I am blown away by all of the new opportunities our students will have as a result of the community’s unity. Our entire school community is sincerely thankful for your contributions that have made these projects possible. 

Teachers of the Year

Randolph is committed to excellence in teaching and learning. We are fortunate to have world class educators and support staff members who are dedicated and passionate leaders. Our team understands the importance of educating the whole child, and the transformative impact it can have on the lives of students academically and personally. In the words of Aristotle, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Every day, educators weave experiences into the school day to support the acquisition and application of the knowledge, skills, and social emotional competencies that prepare students to be leaders in society. With a robust, diverse, and inclusive education, our students will leave Randolph ready to change the world.

The Governor’s Educator of the Year program was designed to recognize teachers and educational services professionals who are inspiring and making a difference in their school communities every day. These teachers are exceptionally skilled, dedicated, and empower all students of different backgrounds and abilities to learn. Each recipient also demonstrates leadership inside and outside of the classroom, including playing an active role in the community. Through their work, they have earned the respect and admiration of students, parents, administrators, and colleagues for their service.

We are pleased to announce the 2022 recipients of Teacher of the Year at each building. Please join us in congratulating:

Glenn Douglas, Randolph High School

Rio Clemente, Randolph Middle School

Lauren Dillon, Center Grove Elementary

Renee Briamonte, Fernbrook Elementary

Michaela Kessinger, Ironia Elementary

Lisa Holmes, Shongum Elementary

The district is proud to recognize these remarkable educators for their passion for students and their success. All of these leaders have left an indelible mark on their classrooms, buildings, and our entire school community. We look forward to our recipients continued contributions and value they bring to Randolph. We are grateful for their service.

Leadership Announcement

Creative Connections

Randolph High School National English Honor Society students wrote and read 30 original children's stories which were shared with Randolph Elementary students. This is the second year the students have done this activity in collaboration with our elementary schools. The National English Honor Society loves creating these stories that can be shared with younger students in the district.

Seniors Maddy Midolo and Alex Mezzo's story was entitled "Henry the Reindeer's First Day of School." The story is about Henry's journey of self-discovery, where he learns that everyone is special in their own way.

Artistic Achievement

Allison Cordero Receives Perfect AP Score, Only 1 of 152 in the World

Randolph High School Alumna Allison Cordero's performance on the AP® 2-D Art and Design Exam in May 2021 was so superior that it falls into a rather select category.

Advanced Placement® Exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5. Allison not only received the top score of 5, but was also 1 of only 152 students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP 2-D Art and Design Exam, receiving the maximum score on each portion of the exam.

This outstanding accomplishment is a direct reflection of the top-quality education being offered at Randolph High School. We applaud Allison's hard work and our teachers responsible for engaging students and enabling them to excel in our college-level courses.
