A Thank You
Note To The Towns Of Barnstead And Alton
Students (left to right): Shaimaa, Morgane, Kite, Martin, and Jule.
Shaimaa from Palestine, Morgane from France , “Kite” from Thailand,
Martin from Spain, and Jule from Germany, and we have been your Prospect
Mountain High School exchange students for the 2014-2015 school year.
We don’t even know where to begin to thank this wonderful community for
your hospitality, because we have all had such an incredible year.
Prospect Mountain has been so amazing, helping us not just settle in,
but including us in the whole culture of the school. Principal
Fitzpatrick, the teachers, coaches, guidance, and the staff have given
so much of themselves to us, and we simply would not have had such a
fantastic experience without all of you on our side. Likewise, we want
to thank the support of the School Board for the exchange program,
because we feel so privileged to have been part of this experience.
We are glad
that we were able to share our five different countries and cultures
with all of you, and are proud of all the things we have accomplished
here. Because of this year, we feel our futures will be far brighter
now, with so many new doors open to us.
friends at school, we thank you for sharing so much with us and for
giving us the full American experience by including us in everything.
But our greatest thanks go to our host families, because if it weren’t
for their kindness and love, we would not have had the chance to
experience this. We will forever be your sons and daughters, sisters
and brothers, even when we are far away.
want to send out a special thanks to Kris Hales, our PAX community
coordinator. She is the greatest coordinator you could dream of and we
loved having her in our lives. Thank you all so much for everything,
from your 2014-2015 Prospect Mountain Exchange Students. You have all
made our year one that we will never forget!
If you want
to learn more about the program, call Kris at 269-7760.
