Hosts Needed for NSHS Visiting International Students

Dear Parents:

As part of the school district’s efforts to expand its global education program, Newton South High School has invited several international students to join us for the 2016-2017 school year.  Through this program, NSHS has and will continue to receive excellent students from around the world. We really need the community’s help with this mission.  Many Newton families have become host families to these students,and this has really proved to be a fantastic experience.

To help us attract host families, Newton Public Schools is working with Educatius International,  a corporate partner on this program.  As a host family, you receive a monthly (tax-free) stipend of between $800-$1000 per month.  Educatius asks that you provide a loving and supportive family environment.  This is a wonderful and educational experience for everyone involved and often leads to lifelong friendships. 

We are very proud that these students select Newton South from among many other fine high schools in the state. If you are interested in participating in this culturally enriching experience, please contact Claudette Rowe at 508-246-7028, claudetterowe.educatius@gmail.com. You can also contact me directly if you’d like to learn more about this program!

With warm regards,
