RBHS Needs Your Support At the Village Board Meeting

RBHS needs your support at the Village Board Meeting

The District has reached a settlement agreement with the Village of Brookfield regarding the zoning litigation. However, the District has to complete the formal zoning process with the Village before construction can commence. The first Zoning hearing was held on Thursday, January 26, 2017. We are pleased to report that Village of Brookfield Zoning Board of Appeals approved the plan (6 Yes – 0 No). Now the Village Board will need to take formal action on the plan agreed upon in the settlement agreement. The first meeting in front of the Village Board is Monday, February 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the Village Hall. Please plan on attending to show your support for the agreement and this project.

Interested in hosting an exchange student

Dear RB parents and guardians,

I am the Local Coordinator for CCI Greenheart, a Chicago based non-profit organization that sponsors and places high school exchange students with volunteer host families in the United States for the academic semester or year.

I am writing to ask for your assistance in identifying qualified families that might be interested in cultural exchange and volunteering to host a high school exchange student. Volunteer host families provide the meals for the exchange student and a place to stay. Students have their own spending money to cover personal expenses and have accident and health insurance through the program. Host families are not compensated for hosting a high school exchange student per U.S. Department of State regulations. However, families are eligible for a modest tax deduction for each month they host a student.

We are currently seeking host families for several 15-18 year old boys and girls from countries such as Germany, Belgium, Taiwan, Vietnam, Hungary, Poland, Colombia, Brazil, and China among many others. We do our best to match students with host families based on similar hobbies and interests in order to ease the student’s transition into U.S. family life and culture.

Who can host a student? CCI Greenheart host families represent the diversity of American culture. Our families are of varied economic, religious and racial backgrounds and include working parents, couples without children, singles and single parents, adoptive parents, empty-nesters, in addition to the traditional nuclear family. All host families complete an application and must clear a background check.

More information about CCI Greenheart can also be found on our website at www.ccigreenheart.org CCI Greenheart is designated by the United States Department of State as a J-1 Exchange Visitor Program Sponsor for the Secondary School program. CCI is currently granted full listing by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET). We are also a member of the World Youth Student and Educational Travel Confederation (WYSTC), GWEA: Global Work Experience Association and The Alliance for International Educational and Cultural Exchange. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Sincerely,

Emily Meszaros
