8-Week Reciprocal Long Term Exchanges to Germany in Spring-Summer 2018
The families of Newport News students Emma Janney (Menchville) and Georgia Danehy (Warwick) opened their homes to a student from Jahn Gymnasium in Griefswald Germany this spring. The students, Rosa and Nele, attended regular classes with their "host sisters" for 8 weeks. In return, Emma and Georgia are now staying with their families in Greifswald for 8 weeks. "Long-Term" reciprocal exchange programs like this, where students are immersed in the culture and academics, have been a long term goal for Sister Cities of Newport News. Thanks to the kindness of these host families, and the drive of 2018 SCNN president Katie Stodghill, teachers Frau Willett, Herr Grap, and with the support of NNPS administration, the program is a reality! We are ready to do it again. Call us if you want to help. 757-926-1348.
