Japanese Exchange Students. In 2018, St. George hosted 10 middle school students from the Tokyo area for ten days week. These children attended classes with our students and also shared lessons about Japanese culture and what middle school students in Japan liked to do. Our St. George kids, K-8, absolutely loved the experience of getting to know these students and the exchanged students enjoyed how warm and welcoming our students were! We had plans to host it in March of 2019 again, but then COVID hit!
We are working to restart this program come late March/early April in 2023. I am surveying to see if any St. George families would be willing to host a HOMESTAY with one or two students at your home for a week to 10 days.
You would provide a private bedroom for the 2 students to share or have their own rooms.
The students would have at least one weekend hanging out with your family doing something fun in Seattle.
You would provide breakfast and dinner, and the students would come to school every day with your child while St. George would provide lunch here for our guests.
All adults in the home must be compliant with Archdiocesan Safe Environment policies to qualify.
There are more specific details to come, but if this is an experience you would like to share with your children, please contact me so I can get a gauge on interest. My own family hosted exchange students twice when my children were in Grades 2-5. We all loved it so much and we are still in contact! Email me for more information.
Friday, Nov. 4th is a NOON Dismissal with Extended Care available. The 8th grade will be hosting an Arroz Caldo lunch. The flyer/order form is attached.
Picture retakes are November 9th for those who were absent or were not satisfied with their child’s picture. Student are invited to bring in a change of clothes for their pictures if they so choose.
