I hope this message finds you and your family well and surviving this pandemic. I am reaching out today as you are either currently hosting an ICES student, have hosted in the past or we have spoken about hosting. We currently have about 300 students that will be arriving this fall and we are actively looking for host families. Rest assured our students will not arrive until this pandemic is deemed safe for our students to travel. What can you do you ask? We are asking that you may consider hosting a student as a welcome family that will host 6-8 weeks, a semester or the entire school year. Our students are15-18 years old, come with health insurance, their own spending money and a great desire to learn not only about our American culture but to become part of your family as well! Host families are volunteers, providing meals in the home, a warm bed and loving environment. You will have local support and know that our team plans activities for you and your student through out the year to participate in. Before you say no to this email, please take alook at our students at www.icesusa.org/meet-our-studentsas there may be a student that catches your eye? We have a great bunch of students looking tocome to America and you can be the key to their successful year! If you cannot host or already are hosting next year, please share this with someone who might be able to.

Thank you & have a great day!!

Top 10 Tracks – February 2019

REVIEW: Top Tracks of February, written by Jackson Wyatt, Digital Editor-in-Chief.

“When thinking of February, two conflicting attributes could come to mind. On one hand, it is a short and relatively tepid month, awkwardly placed at the beginning of the year in the midst of cold, unforgiving weather. On the other hand, it features one of the year’s biggest holidays, the only one in popular Western culture that seems to emphasize romantic love over goodwill. Compared to January, the tracks on this list are not particularly focused on the idea of romance and passion. Some of the songs present relate to it, but music has always been enamored with the trials and tribulations of love. They go hand-and-hand like flowers and chocolate. Whether or not you found yourself in someone’s arms this Valentine’s Day, here are ten eligible bachelors for your music library.....”
