Oakwood's International students from China, together with International Coordinator Mrs. Vinkhuyzen, organized their annual lunchtime Chinese New Year/Spring Festival celebration with delicious Asian foods, drinks, and cultural information. The event was enjoyed by all high school students, faculty, and staff. Happy New Year, everyone!

"We are a very small family, and hosting has been a great experience for us. My daughters now have host brothers and sisters all over the world.”


"Hosting has turned our family members into bridge-builders between cultures. In a world with many problems, it feels good to be able to contribute in small ways to a better understanding.”


“I was an international student myself and had a great experience. Hosting feels like a great way to pay it forward.”
