Brattleboro High School Exchange Students In Need of Hosts

Brattleboro High School is hoping to host 10 international exchange students this fall, who arrive in the area next month. Some are still in need of hosts who could welcome them to the area for even just the first couple of months of their stay. Could you open up your heart and home to one of these students, such as:

- Marie, a 17 year old girl from France, who loves cooking and arts. She hopes to spend time cooking French meals with, and learning from, her new host family.

- Pablo, a 16 year old boy from Spain. He loves sports, and hopes to learn baseball while here. He has a twin sister at home, and enjoys family time.

- And Sitong is a very hard working student from China. She is 16 years old, is active in her church youth group, tennis, choir, and volunteering.

Last Call for Theater Campers

Thanks, as always, to ibrattleboro for welcoming Guilford announcements.  & actually in this case kids from other towns may attend this session for a modest $50 for the week.  (We think that's a pretrty good bargain for a day camp that includes breakfast (kids can bring lunch, and there are snacks throughout the day, too;) theater games and acrtivities with two wonderful teachers, afternoon activities and time outdoors, and a pretty good-length day 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.  And any child needing transport can arrange for one of the staff, including Lbrary trustees and othger parents, to carpool.

We have 2 or maybe 3 slots left, so this is our last call:

The Skills Gap - Has America's Educational System Hurt Young Workers?

For the last few years, there have been rumblings that our educational system is not adequately preparing students to take their place in the workforce.  They call it career-readiness, and unfortunately, a lot of young job applicants aren't, ready that is.

The Spring issue of my alumni magazine raised the point again, in response to a recent survey by PayScale.com.  The article, entitled “Essential Skills: What does it take to be career-ready in today's workforce,” would not have caught my eye had it not been for the colorful bubbles atop the page.  Inside those bubbles were numbers – 56%, 44%, 60% – which represented how many hiring managers thought recent college graduates lacked certain skills.  The skills our newest workers lack may not surprise us, but they should worry us more than a little.
