HOST FAMILIES NEEDED - Educatius Group is looking for families in the Davis or southern Weber counties to host students going to Layton Christian Academy during the 2nd semester of the school year (January 3–May 18). We are in serious need to place at least one dozen students from around the world including boys and girls currently living in Germany, Brazil, Italy, Vietnam, and France.

All that is required is a room (can share) with a bed, dresser, and study area. You would also be responsible for getting your high school student to/from school, make sure they are fed 3 meals a day and simply treat them with the same love you do your own family members. Students provide their own spending money, health insurance, and most extras requiring additional expense. A reasonable monthly stipend is also provided to the host family for their hosting efforts. Please call Monte Poll at 801-698-8115 or email to ask any questions or get an application started.

VISION SCREENING VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - November 30, 2021 at 8:25 A.M. to help with the state-required vision screening. Please, no small children. Meet in the Elementary library, we should be done around 1:00 P.M. Sign up on Help Counter; see the bottom of the newsletter to sign up for HelpCounter.
