Res Reminders - Week of April 17, 2016
Cultural Exchange Information Meeting

All parents are invited to attend a meeting on Monday, April 18 at 6:30 pm in the Library to learn about Resurrection's partnership with the Cultural Exchange Academy.  This program gives Chinese students an opportunity to attend high school in the United States with the goal of preparing them for entrance into an American University.  At the meeting parents can learn about the program, its goals and the enriching opportunities it has for both Chinese and American students. One of the very positive features of this program is the opportunity for the Chinese students to experience American family life by living with a host family.  American families have a wonderful opportunity to welcome a Chinese high school student into their home and open their heart to learning more about the worldHost families are provided a monthly stipend as compensation for food, overhead and transportation.  Join us for this informational meeting to learn more about the program.
