Families Needed to Host Chinese Students

The Following is a message from Dr Marjorie Castro:

We are pleased to announce that once again we will have 35 Chinese high school students visiting Croton this summer. The 35 students and two teachers are all from Jian Ping High School in Shanghai, one of the top high schools in China. We are seeking Croton families who would be willing to host the students from July 12th through July 25th.

The students will need to be driven to the high school on weekday mornings unless your home is within walking distance. They will spend their mornings in classes at the high school and their afternoons taking sightseeing trips in the area. They will need to be picked up in the late afternoon. The students will spend at least one of the weekends with their families and will probably have a day of sightseeing in New York City on one day of the second weekend.

If you would be interested in hosting a student, please call Leslie Valentine at 271-2147 ext. 201 to give your name. Leslie is Joel Adelberg's secretary. We will schedule an informational meeting about the exchange in the near future (you are welcome to attend even if you are just considering hosting a student). If you have questions, don't hesitate to call Joel Adelberg at the same number (271-2147 ext. 201) or me at 271-4793. We would be happy to talk with you and answer any questions you may have. If you would be willing to host the Chinese teachers accompanying the group, we also would like to hear from you.

Last year, the families who hosted one or more of the visiting Chinese students (a number of families took 2 and one family took 3) proved to be a remarkable experience for the families who hosted them.
