Earlier this year one of our eighth grade students, David, wrote a letter to William Mitchell School of Law in St. Paul.  We received back a heartfelt personal letter that included the line “if there is anything else we can do . . .”

That letter started a wonderful relationship with the staff and students of William Mitchell.  In early April our eighth grade AVID class visited the college to interview students and participate in a simulated trial in the colleges courtroom-like classrooms.  Later two William Mitchell students visited Northeast to help prepare us for a more elaborate mock trial prepared for us by Northeast Middle School’s resident expert, Joseph Bloedoorn.

I’d really like to thank Anne Wolsfeld, AnJuanna Napue, Robyn Meyer, Lawrencina Mason and everyone who made this possible.
