SCITUATE METCO HOST FAMILY
IDEAS TO SUPPORT OUR ELEMENTARY BOSTON STUDENTS
Afternoon and evening events: Invite students to stay afternoon and meet parents at school in evening. Many times parents cannot meet the bus in Boston and make it down to Scituate for a conference or event. Also students would then make two round trips in one day. Some of these events are:
- Back To School/Open House Night
- Fall & Spring Parent Conferences
- Winter and Spring Concerts
- Book Fair Parents Night
- Spring for the Arts
Other Hosting Opportunities Possibilities:
Birthdays: Contact your host family to assist in getting birthday snack (safely) to school! Especially if the student wanted to do an ice cream treat!
The Town of Scituate is also known for other wonderful opportunities and events that our Boston students hear about each year but without your help don’t get the experience. Events such as: Heritage Days, Labor Day Parade, Spring for the Arts. Simple everyday experiences are also enriching such as the beach, the harbor, and just playing in the neighborhood
