Short term need for exchange student host family

Exchange students need host families; short term option available

Hello Everyone!

Time for my annual 4th of July appeal - only I'm a week early! :)

We have six Thai students who have exit interviews set for Wednesday, which means we have until end of day tomorrow to identify a host family for them.  Because of this deadline, we are asking anyone who has hosted with us or even thought about hosting with us to consider being a "Welcome Family" for one of these students. 

What this means:  Student arrives in August and stays with you for the first 2-3 months.  During that time, I find a new family for them where they move to for the remainder of the year. 

There are 5 girls and 1 boy we are trying to place for this immediate deadline.    If you are not able to do so, but might be able to with a bit more time to plan, there are many students from other countries that are still available as well.  I would really appreciate a note back if there's any possibility of welcoming one of my students! 

Thanks all and have a wonderful 4th of July.

ps - anyone interested in Thai food, check out this article from the Post Gazette this Sunday - it's about Si, one of my students who just returned home!
