Host an Australian - Second Meeting
Sheldon High School has been selected to host 39 Australians, who will participate in a cultural exchange in our area from Thursday, January 5 to Monday, January 16. There are 35 students ranging in age from 13-17 years and 4 adults (teachers/leaders). Our students have a wonderful opportunity to host the Australians and student interest is quite high. The Aussie school groups are from Centenary Heights State, Mount Gravatt State, and Park Ridge State High School areas.
The responsibilities of the host family for the Australian guest are simple. In general, host families will provide a bed for the guest; it can be a bunk-bed or trundle bed in a shared room (same sex of course), or a separate guest room for the visitor. Last year many of our host families had a student who took the couch and gave their Australian their room. Host families will pick up the guest at Sheldon on Thursday, January 5 at approximately 7:30pm and will house the guest at their homes until the departure date of Monday, January 16 (MLK Holiday). During the school week, the host family will be sure the guest gets to school to meet their group in the morning, and will pick them up in the afternoon when the guest returns from their tour group outing. Host families will keep the students during the weekends of their trip (there is a three day weekend during our groups’ trip). This is a great time to show your Aussie student the highlights of your city. Host families provide breakfast and dinner for the guest. The purpose of the home-stay is to give each Australian student a cultural experience of what life is like with their US family.
This cultural exchange has been going strong since 1988, and it continues to be a fantastic experience for both our students and the Australians. If you are interested in hosting a student or two from Australia, please plan to attend the Host Family Information Night on Thursday, November 17at 6:00pm in the Library. Families will have a chance to read through the biographies of Australian students who will be coming and confirm their choice that night. A host parent and student must both be present to confirm your choice. The host family/student applications and biographies will be distributed and explained and will need to be returned by Friday, November 18.

The Elk Grove Unified School District has launched a new secure EGUSD Portal website that will allow parents and guardians the option to receive their student’s official academic progress reports and report cards electronically. Parents and guardians will also be able to securely update and change opt-out elections, such as directory information, posting of student photos, and movies and videos. Additional features and reports are planned for the portal in the near future that will provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to view other academic information about their student rather than receive printed reports through the U.S. mail.
