MENTORING PROGRAM AT GMU WILL “CHANGE LIVES”
MENTORING PROGRAM AT GMU WILL “CHANGE LIVES”

The Gilbertsville-Mount Upton Central School District may be small, but when it comes to student mentors, it boasts a big number: 100. As in 100 percent.

That’s how many GMU students were included in this year’s newly expanded Mentoring Program, which matches students in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade with those in grades 6 through 12. For the district of 369 students, that’s a lot of organization and coordination of schedules and students. But organizers say the payoff will be well worth the effort.

 
New program should increase student success
A new program aimed at improving student performance is gaining momentum at GMU, thanks to the contributions of faculty and staff at the school and the help of a few local school districts.
The Response to Intervention (RTI) program is being overhauled, and school officials are expecting much better progress, growth and outcomes for students who need help with specific areas of their studies.

After more than 20 years, the GMU gym floor has a new look.

The opportunity for a change came when it was time to refinish the floor last year. The 20-year refinishing was a standard maintenance project, said Building and Grounds Supervisor Alan Digsby. But it took three failed attempts by the original installer of the floor last year before GMU Superintendent Annette Hammond and the Board of Education opted for another contractor this spring.
