The Katoh Host Family Coordinator is looking for at least one more Raleigh Park family to host a female student from an elementary school in Numazu, Japan from Friday, October 24 through Saturday, November 1. What a great opportunity this would be to give your children the experience of Japanese culture while helping this student adapt to American life.

The host family would be responsible for providing room, board and including the student in family activities for the week. She is between the ages of 11 and 12 years, and will be spending her weekdays at Raleigh Park. No pets in the home, please.

Please contact Karen Youngs ( in the school office as soon as possible if you are interested and would like more information.
