Mentorship Magnificence

Main thumbnail68892

Students at Dodd had the opportunity to reconnect with their mentors and express their appreciation to them during the school’s mentoring program celebration prior to the holiday break. The mentoring program, now in its eighth year, connects faculty members with students in a mentor-mentee relationship. The mentors help to ease students’ transition from sixth-grade and prior to high school, and annually offer their time, assistance and leadership to students who seek to make the most of their middle school experience. The event was organized by school social worker Felice Niland, who started the program in 2008 and has overseen its increasing participation since then.
