Capstone 2018: Last day at SEES, End of Homestay

Friday was the last day that students attended the Suzhou Experimental Elementary School. In the afternoon they were picked up by their parent chaperones and said goodbye to their host families. There were many tears and hugs. It was a truly wonderful week at SEES, filled me a variety of fun activities that allowed TIS students to learn more about the local culture and history. Students were able to build on the friendships they established with their hosts in Portland and many were sad to say goodbye. However, they will all be able to keep in touch and hopefully visit each other again in the future. We are so thankful to SEES for their generosity and continued support of this wonderful program! Thank you SEES!
