Purple Tiger Passage - WHS


Hello Watertown Community,
My name is Dawn Thomas and I am sure some of you know me from the community as my kids go to school at Watertown. I work for EF High School Exchange year for the student exchange program. I have had the pleasure of working with the current exchange student and the past exchange students and their host families in the Watertown Community. Principle Luttrell, the Watertown High School students and staff, and the community has welcomed the exchange students this past year with open arms and I want to say thank you.
I am currently looking for host families for the 2018/2019 school year to host an exchange student. Students with EF have been through extensive background checks, have good grades, speak English, and are overall good youth. This is a great opportunity to bring the world to your home. Families would need to provide basic meals, reasonable driving to from activities, and a loving caring home. Students bring their own spending money for all extracurricular activities, toiletries, their own insurance, and may share a room with your youth of same age/gender. I would be your local IEC and be here to help with anything with the school, the student, or your family.

I have two great students needing host home for the 2018/2019 school year… Full student profiles with pics will be given after a family has completed the application/background.

1)Frederick from Denmark (male,16 years old)- Smart, easy to talk with, open minded, very polite, very good English, has a younger sister, and is very easy going. He is from a small town, enjoys listening to music, nature, cooking, time with family, and gaming.

2)Chiara from Switzerland (female, 16 years old)- Open minded, excited to start the exchange year, open minded, has younger brother, gets good grades, and is easy going. She loves animals, riding horses, cooking monthly, working with young children, being with friends and family, movies, and choir.

If interested in hosting one of the students above then please contact me to discuss more and/or to get your family started with opening your heart and/or home to an exchange student.

Thank you,
Dawn Thomas, IEC EF High School Exchange Year Watertown TN
