5. It is helpful when you call to be able to tell me what interests your child has so that I can match them to a suitable escort.   

Shadows will be escorted throughout the day by Sophomore/Freshman class members only—(no siblings)


On the day you shadow 

  • Report at 8:15 am – to the vestibule underneath the clock tower. 
  • Bring lunch money - $4 minimum or bring a bag lunch.   
  • Pick up at 3:15 pm – (the bell rings at 3:25 pm) in front of the school at the flagpole on N. Central Avenue. 

I will make every effort to accommodate you and your child.  We are excited to welcome your child to the IB program and the Home of the Big Red,
