Dodd Middle School’s eighth grade students, who are members of  Team Cornell visited seventh grade ELA classes, who are members of Team Yale, to speak about the expectations for eighth grade. They shared how the standards have increased, and how students can be prepared to achieve success. 

The students provided some valuable insight, shared their own experiences in eighth grade and how they believe those experiences prepared them to successfully transition to Freeport High School in the fall. The eighth graders answered a variety of questions from the seventh graders and encouraged them to keep their grades up, join an extracurricular activity, and properly maintain their attendance.
