Dear Marshwood Families,

This fall, the Boston Latin School is hosting 27  high school senior students and two teachers from Denmark. To enhance their cultural experience, they are looking to experience a rural educational setting in addition to the urban experience of Boston. Marshwood is honored to provide this opportunity and to welcome them to our community for three days.

They are scheduled to arrive in South Berwick on Wednesday, October 4th and will leave the morning of October 7th. During this time they will be visiting Marshwood High School classes and participating in our homecoming festivities. Since their goal is to learn about our local culture they would like to be placed in home stays for the three evenings that they are with us. If you would like to share your home with one or two Danish students for the three nights,  please let us know by emailing  your name, address, contact information, pets, number of students you may host, preference to host boy(s) and/or girl(s), and any further questions you may have. The requirements for home stays include a bed in possibly a single room, breakfast and evening meals, and transportation. Additional information and a detailed itinerary will follow. After school hours you are welcome to show your Danish student(s) around and introduce them to life in Southern Maine.

Thank you for helping make this experience a positive one for the Danish students and the Marshwood community.


Paul Mehlhorn

Principal Marshwood High School
