All 7 Japanese track students had great time with their host families. Each family took our students to a lot of places and students had many great experiences like making soba noodles, skiing, and hot springs.
On the last day of school, each student's parent took the host family to a dinner and had great time. Every family took phone numbers and made Facebook connections. Now adays it is free to make phone calls and video calls. That helps our students connect with the host family more easily. Many of the Japanese students want to visit us later!
Some of the host family mothers and children cried when we said thank you and good bye. They felt and treated our students like family members.
Each student got an album from their host family. They will share the photos with you later when we get back to school.
