The People's Climate March
The People’s Climate March will take place this Sunday,
September 21. It is an opportunity for ordinary citizens to show world leaders
that we want a “world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with
good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.”
(peoplesclimate.org) The Dominican
Sisters of Peace will be marching and invite you to join us. We will meet at Dominican Academy at 10:30
and walk over to Columbus Circle. The
March starts at 11:30.
Host Families Needed!
For the 2014-2015 school year, Dominican Academy will admit several students from China to our school. This new program is in partnership with Twinn Palms, a firm that organizes the homestay component. We anticipate these students will enter 9th grade. All of them will need homestay families, and we want to ensure that all our Chinese students are well accommodated. Before we open up the homestay opportunity to the greater community, we want to give you, our Dominican Academy family, priority to express interest in this meaningful program. For your consideration, host families will receive $1,700 per month for the 10 months. If this program is of interest to you and you wish to receive more information and details on logistics, please contact our representative from TWINN PALMS, Elizabeth Quaranta at email@example.com. Send the following information and she will add your family to the interest list.
1. Family name
2. Students' names and grades in Fall of 2014 (if applicable)
3. City of residence
4. Languages spoken in your home
5. Your phone number
