What an experience! St. Mary's has partnered with the KoAm Educaton Alliance to bring Korean students to our school. Just recently, Mr. and Mrs. Jae Park, KoAm Coordinators, visited JongBin Lee and Juweon Kim, two of our KoAm students.
The KoAm Alliance places Korean students with American families so they can learn about American culture and education, and practice using the English language. American sponsor families learn about the Korean culture and language. The experience of sponsoring a Korean student is very rewarding and often gives the American family a new perspective on our culture as they see it through the eyes of the Korean students.
The KoAm Alliance is looking for families to sponsor four Korean students interested in coming to St. Mary's for the 2013-2014 school year. If you are interested in being a sponsor family, please call Mrs. Castle at 402-291-1694.
