Become a Host Family!

We will be hosting students and teachers from Beijing Primary School again this year. We will have 16 students and 4 teachers join us for a week in January. We are looking for families to serve as host families for the students. This is a wonderful cultural opportunity for our children to learn more about another country and culture.

Our host families will provide a safe, respectful, and appropriate home environment that understands differences. Our host families

  • · Are welcoming and flexible!
  • · Make our guest students or teachers a part of your family!
  • · Provide room/bed for the student or teacher.
  • · Involve the students/teachers in your family activities.
  • · Provide transportation to and from school/events.
  • · Share your culture as it is in everyday life.
  • · Create time and opportunities for work, recreation, and personal time.
  • · Help improve the students/teachers use of English language.

If you are willing to serve as a host family this year, please complete the form and return it to Mrs. Curley by November 30th. Access the form by clicking here.
