HOST FAMILIES NEEDED STARTING MARCH 28TH: Ten students from Union’s partnership school in Germany are arriving here in LPC on March 28th. We still need to find host families to welcome them to Union High School and share everyday life with them. They are so excited to come to America. They want to get to know teenagers here and do whatever activities they do.
They are only here from March 28th until April 8th – just 11 days!
They attend school with you and go to activities, etc. We make a few field trips with them and they also do a couple trips during the school day.
Please consider providing them with a great experience – you give them a bed, meals at home and transportation to school. You will gain a lifelong friend!
