Mentorship Success at Dodd

Students at Dodd recognized and thanked their mentors during an end-of-year celebration of the school’s mentorship program, now in its seventh year. This year, the program featured 49 teachers mentoring 99 students by offering their assistance, time and leadership. The celebration was comprised of food cooked and ordered by the teachers, and it served as another opportunity for the students to socialize with their mentors. Dodd social worker Felice Niland, who started the mentoring program in 2008, said the goal is to enable more teachers and students to participate next year.
