Assemblyman Rooney (R-Bergen) attended the Coordinated PTO Council meeting in Wyckoff this morning to help announce the “Slow Before You Go” sign campaign. The initiative brings awareness to traffic safety concerns in the Wyckoff school districts. The campaign is part of a Gold Award Project by Amanda Sproha, a junior at Ramapo High School. Rooney served as her project advisor and has been working with her for over a year.
The issue was highlighted from listening to various community groups, such as Wyckoff Moms. Assemblyman Rooney helped bring together Police Chief David Murphy, Scott Fisher of the DPW, Township Committeeman John Carolan, Wyckoff Ambulance Corps 1st Lieutenant Hayley Rooney and the superintendent of schools Richard Kuder, to have a coordinated effort and increase the impact of her project. Eisenhower Elementary School sixth grader, Katie Haig, created the design for the “Slow Before You Go” project.
Assemblyman Rooney presented citations to Katie Haig for her creativity and originality in designing the image for the campaign, and to Amanda Sproha for successfully completing her Gold Award Project. The signs will be posted outside the schools in the district within the coming weeks.
