HOSTING INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS FOR CHRISTMAS

Christmas HouseTo date, two Global Perspectives students have requested time with a Canadian family this Christmas. We are waiting to hear from the other nine.

Would you be interested in including some of our international students from China for Christmas dinner or another meal over the holidays?  If you can include some Global Perspectives students in your holiday plans, please contact Christa.  This is a great opportunity for our international students to learn more about traditions here, and to enrich our own opportunities to learn more about these students and their traditions.
