    • Central Regional Meeting: taking place this year in November at Christian Brothers Academy: details will be shared as soon as we know them! Go Franklin!
    • please let me know if you would like to host a student from a foreign country.  We hosted a student from Germany three years ago for one month and it was quite rewarding and opened our eyes to see how others view Americans.  He was like part of our family and our children missed him very much when he left.  His family then hosted our son for a few weeks in the summer.  Students tend to stay for about one month, either during school year or during summer.  The program also offers an opportunity for your child to travel abroad.
    • remind 101: please join our Latin groups: we have remind groups for Latin I, II, III, IV, and a JCL group.  Ask Magistra Jones for more information!
