HOST FAMILIES NEEDED FOR SHORT-TERM EXCHANGE PROGRAM
Newton High School is excited to announce they will participate in a short-term exchange program alongside Halsted Middle School. Customized Student Tours in Newton, NJ will organize the joint program.
The program runs from April 24th to May 1st, 2017 (one week).
During this time our international guests will shadow host students at school for 2 days and participate in pre-arranged bus excursions in and around NJ and NY. Evenings and weekends will be spent getting to know their new American friends and having fun with their host family.
This program provides a perfect, short-term opportunity for families to learn about French culture without having to leave home.
Your child does not need to take or speak French, all of the French students speak English and are here to practice their skills, make friends and get a taste of American culture.
The group consists of 35 girls and boys age 13-18 years old from the Lyon, France area. The group is insured and students have their own spending money.
For more information on the program please contact Sandra Polizzo
