The Amity program adds so much to our school:
Happy New Year to all our wonderful Merriconeag families! I hope you enjoyed these fabulous few days of vacations and that you have started the New Year full of energy and good resolutions. As for me I have been reflecting on my role as a French teacher in the High School, as International exchange coordinator and as mentor to our young Amity Aides who come with such generous hearts to help our in our school. This Amity Aide Program has become an integral part of our High School in particular.
If you can’t host this year but would love to try the experience next year, please let us know also. We can only continue this program if we can be sure to find host families for our assistants. It would be a shame to cancel the Amity Program for pure logistical reasons while it is such a successful program otherwise! I know personally how rich and life transforming this experience can be, as I was… the 1st Amity Aide at Mt Ararat School in 1974!
