Listserve message for 5-8-17-Housing for Spanish Consular Assistant & Thank you from Steph O'Reilly
Published on May 8, 2017 13:57

Would you enjoy sharing your home with our incoming Spanish Consular Classroom Assistant beginning in late September? Each year, the Spanish government makes it possible for Millis to host a language and cultural assistant through their international exchange program. The consular assistant arrives in late September and stays until the end of the school year, sharing the Spanish language and culture with students in our immersion and non-immersion classes on the elementary and secondary level while also learning about the culture of the United States through both the classroom and homestay experiences.  


A number of Millis families have shared their homes with consular assistants over the past decade; all that is required is a private bedroom for the student, breakfast and dinner, and wireless access. The family would also be responsible for picking up the student at Logan Airport in late September.The homestay is designed as a cultural exchange experience and does not include childcare or household responsibilities. The district provides bus transportation to school each day and lunch in one of our cafeterias. Students hold medical insurance and have had a full series of vaccinations. All assistants are non-smoking. They are eager to share their language and culture with a family!


Please contact the district's main office at 508-376-7000 if you would be interested in hosting this year.
