Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year

We are excited to empower our students with their education and look forward to a successful new year.

Here’s to an AWESOME new school year filled with a warm climate, high expectations for teachers and students, and a positive attitude every where.

Please check back soon for website updates and announcements.

August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse

Good evening, Twin Bridges Schools would like to invite you to perhaps a once in a lifetime event…the upcoming August 21st total solar eclipse in south central Idaho. The school is currently gauging interest in those who might want to attend the event; if enough interest is present…the bus would leave for Roberts, Idaho at 8:00 a.m. with the partial eclipse starting around 10:30 and total obstruction by 11:33. The bus would return shortly thereafter; we would ask passengers to contribute $5 to cover the cost of the trip including the glasses that would be required to safely view. We would also ask that all children not in school or grades K-6 be accompanied by an adult. Please call the school for more info or to reserve your spot today! Thank you…

Foreign Exchange Student(s) Opportunities

Twin Bridges Schools was recently contacted by Wendy MacNeill, the new local CIEE coordinator, to test our interest in hosting a foreign exchange student or two…please read the following and contact me at the office should you have any questions.

 

Here are 3 students I really like. If someone is interested in volunteering to host, I can show them more detail about each.  Also, families don’t have to have children, they can be single, retired, or single-parents, too.

 

Contact Info:  Wendy MacNeill 406-404-9039 (call or text)

 

FSL17031 – Girl. Helga is a 16 year old girl from SPAIN. “I am responsible and perseverant, and I consider myself hard-working and sociable person. I am a good student and I always try to achieve the highest marks. I have a lot of goals in life and one of them is to study Chemistry. I play the piano, sometimes the guitar and I love singing. I’m looking forward to showing some typical Spanish songs to you. I practice handball in a team and I play beach volleyball and basketball, which I love. Team sports are my passion. I live with my parents and my little sister. My mum always helps me when I need it, my dad gives me the best advice and my little sister is adorable.” . GPA: 3.90

 

ALP17007 – Boy. Nhiem Chinh is a 15 year old boy from VIETNAM. “My name is Nhiem, but you can call me Max, I’m a 15 year old boy. I’m studying 9th grade at a private school with Western teaching style that I really like. I am very open and easy to adapt. When people first meet me, they usually tell me that I am a little bit shy at first. But I like people and I am very sociable, so I can be familiar with new friends quickly. I love to participate in extracurricular activities such as basketball, soccer, etc. I am very outgoing and a sport lover.” GPA: 3.50

 

AIM17024GP – Girl. Lijin is a 17 year old girl from KOREA, SOUTH.  “ I want to have different cultural experiences to expand my horizon. The American culture that I have encountered is only through drama and YouTube. When I saw these, I became interested in the American culture. Through this program, I want to see a bigger world. I‘m just a high school student but I want to realize myself that I’m not a big fish in small pond. I like to listen to music, sing, and cover K-POP dances. I want to become an interpreter so I am very much interested in foreign languages and foreign cultures.

  • Accept a student into their home as a part of their family for one or two semesters
  • Provide a bed and room (student can share a room with a host sibling of the same gender within 4 years age difference)
  • Share 3 meals a day (if students choose to purchase school lunches it is their responsibility)
  • Claim a $50 per month deduction on federal income taxes
  • Receive local and regional support 24/7 from well-trained staff and volunteers
