    What is Partners?


    It is a pleasure to announce that Blue Mountain Middle School Partners Program will be continuing this year. This very successful inter-generational program offers BMMS middle school students an opportunity for an enriching experience working with senior citizens through planned after-school activities and trips. This program helps students to discover and develop new skills and relationships as they take on roles of responsibility and leadership.

    In order to participate in the program, you must commit yourself to the scheduled Tuesday afternoon (2:35 – 3:45) meeting dates. Donna Miller of Blue Mountain Middle School’s staff is the Program Leader. I will be assisted by several Hendrick Hudson High School sophomores. We believe that the relationships the students develop with their senior, combined with community service will increase the students’ understanding of themselves and their strengths, while giving them some knowledge of the resources in their community and how they themselves can make a meaningful contribution.
