Host Families Needed
The 2015-2016 school year will mark year four of our international student program. GDRHS has welcomed students from all over the world, and by all accounts the international student program has been a tremendous success. The international students have enriched our school in many ways; adding diversity to our school and providing a global perspective to our classrooms are but two examples.
We are actively seeking host families for the 2015-2016 school year. Host families may choose to host a student for a semester or a full academic year. Currently we are seeking three host families for the students highlighted below; however, we are in the midst of reviewing applicants so additional host families will be needed for next year. Hosting an international student can prove a rewarding experience for both the student and the host family. If you are interested in learning more please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or I can be reached in the main office at (978) 448-6362.

A German International student with a F-1 visa needs a host family so he may attend Groton-Dunstable Regional High School next year. The family will be paid $1,000 stipend each month during the school year. He likes soccer, swimming and skiing. The student has his own spending money, insurance, follows family rules, helps with chores, participates in family and school activities and comes the middle of August and stays till school is out. He needs to have his own bedroom with a place to study. He can take the bus to school and will need transportation to his school activities as well as carpooling.
The student is allergic to cats but can be in a home with a dog with his medicine. This has been confirmed by CCIgreenheart, the exchange student agency. Call Ginger Smith 603-397-2494 or email grandmagingerhosting@comcast.
