From Denmark to America
By: Emilee Sweley
This year Litchfield Public School is very fortunate
to host two foreign exchange students. Ida Sofie
Lindorff Adrian is from Copenhagen, Denmark.
She is staying with Dale and Linda Zoerb.
Sofie has wanted to become a foreign exchange
student ever since she was a little girl. Her favorite
class is Art. The biggest change, in her opinion,
after coming to America was the food. In America
her favorite thing is the people.
Sofie is currently playing volleyball and is loving it!
We look forward to getting to known Sofie more,
and to making her experience in America a
Welcome to America!

Litchfield Public Schools is happy to welcome Tim
Schlagheck as a foreign exchange student this school
year. He is from Cologne, Germany, which has a
population of 1.3 million! He is staying with Dale and
Tim’s pastimes in Germany included playing soccer.
When he came to America, his pastimes became
spending time with his host family and playing football.
He is on the Spartan football team.
Let’s all continue to make Tim feel welcome so that his
experience in America is the best it can be!
According to Tim, the biggest difference between
Cologne and Litchfield, besides the population, of
course, is that Litchfield has more space and sports.
Tim’s decision to become an exchange student was
greatly influenced by his desire to learn more about
America, including the school system. He also wanted
to meet people he would have never met otherwise.
When asked how his experience has been in Litchfield
so far he stated, “It’s awesome. I really like it and it’s
very exciting. The Zoerbs are a very good host family
too.” His favorite thing about Litchfield Public School,
is that everyone knows everyone. His favorite classes
are Physical Education and Art.
