  1. West Orange High School Senior Citizen Prom
    The Senior Citizen Prom was initiated in 2007 to provide students with the experience of service to elders, and a social opportunity to interact with elders of their community. The Senior Citizen Prom is one of a number of district initiatives that integrate the senior community into the school community, and provide needed resources to a generation that has provided life-long support to the public school district. Other opportunities for senior citizens at West Orange High School include free performances of the fall play and spring musical, a holiday luncheon and computer classes.

  2. Center For Exercise and Aging
    The students, through the visits by seniors and the outreach to them in the community, understand the seniors as a group and understand the physical strength and weaknesses of the seniors, thereby getting a better understanding of the process of aging both from a generic point of view and as a way to understand their own aging future. The course, and its Center, provides the students with the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge and gain practical experience working with an age group that many will work with during their professional careers, i.e.  as physical and occupational therapists, geriatric doctors, directors of programming in community senior centers, assisted living facilities, etc.

  10. Bernards High School Intergenerational Prom
    From its inception in 2008, the Intergenerational Prom has been a favorite event for Bernards High School Students. The prom is the brainchild of Bernardsville resident Greg DiGioacchino, a member of the Somerset Hills School District Board of Education. Senior citizens from the school district’s four sending towns – Bernardsville, Bedminster, Far Hills and Peapack-Gladstone – are invited every year. “The purpose of the evening is to treat (the) senior citizens to dinner and dancing,” she said. “It’s just mingling, interaction between the generations. Many generations just coming together to have a night of fun.”
