NEWTON, NJ – Newton High School and Halsted Middle School will soon be welcoming exchange students from France. Four students still need host families to stay with for the week they are visiting. The girls will be here from April 24 through May 1.

The host family must have a student who attends Newton High School, Halsted Middle School or Greenhills Middle School.  According to program organizer Sandra Polizzo all four have insurance, pocket money and speak English.  They do not require airport transportation.

The host families will be asked to have a dedicated bed, three meals per day and a loving family.  There is a short application.
