  • Senior Shadowing

    As part of our focus on College and Career Readiness, seniors will have an opportunity to participate in a Senior Shadowing Project. This will take place:



    Time Available for Shadowing


    March 10th


    On this day, seniors may elect to shadow an adult at his/her job site during the hours designated in the chart above. It is fine if a student would like to go to his/her parents’ workplace to observe.

    This Shadowing Project will provide an opportunity for seniors to see first-hand what an adult does who works in a career that may be of interest to them.

    In order for a senior to participate in the Shadowing Project, a parent or guardian and the student must complete and sign the permission form and return it to the attendance office no later than Tuesday, March 3rd.

    Forms will be distributed during the 2/12/20 CCR block and extras will be available in the front office.
