We are happy to share with you that this year we will welcome Guatemalan students to campus through the Faces and Our Cultures Program (FACES). These young participants spend nearly two months living with a host family while attending classes and participating in extracurricular activities at school. The program has led to wonderful friendships and has provided our students and our Guatemalan guests with valuable cultural experiences.
In order to participate in the Faces Program, Guatemalan students apply to be Cultural Ambassadors of their country and are carefully selected by the FACES team. They go through a preparation process during the year and also prepare cultural projects to share with their host family and school.
This fall, our young cultural ambassadors will arrive October 16th, stay with their host families and join our school community for the following 7.5 weeks, and depart December 9th.
We will host an informational meeting at school for potential host families, in which a FACES representative will share the experience of hosting and answer any questions you may have.
Please join us on Monday, May 7th at 5:00 PM at the Upper School. If you plan to attend or would like further information, please email Mrs. Frazier at email@example.com.
