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!
