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.
