If you are an 8th grader, we would love to have you shadow a current Ursuline student sometime during the months of September, October, or November. Shadowing gives you the opportunity to experience the atmosphere at UA and see what being a Lion is all about.
- The typical shadow day is 7:45am – 2:30pm.
- Students should bring 4 or 5 dollars for lunch (packing is fine too).
- Dress code: No Shorts. Nice jeans/pants/capris are fine. If the student wears leggings, whatever she wears over them should reach right above the knee.
- Students can either be dropped off at the main office, or a parent can accompany them into the building to meet their host student. We have a visitor parking lot on the right as you pull in the driveway.
- The end of our school day is 3:00pm. Visitors are dismissed at 2:30 so that their parents can avoid traffic at the end of our school day.
Only 8th Graders are permitted to shadow Ursuline students.
- If your daughter doesn’t know a current freshman or sophomore to shadow, one will be assigned to her based on her interests (usually a sophomore, since shadowing happens toward the beginning of the year, and freshmen are still learning their way around the school). We recommend that students do not shadow juniors or seniors.
- Most typical school days are fine for shadowing.
- However, there are certain days throughout the year that do not allow for visitors due to various scheduled events (see below).
- September 4 - Freshmen not available (sophomores available)
- September 9 - Late Start Day (shadowing allowed, but day is shortened.)
- September 15 - Some sophomores may be on retreat.
- September 24 - Freshman Retreat (sophomores available)
- October 8 - Sophomores Testing (freshmen available)
- October 14 - Late Start Day (shadowing is allowed, but day is shortened.)
- October 15 - Sophomores Testing (freshmen available)
- October 20 to October 23 - End of First Quarter (many students will have tests.)
- October 24 - No School
- October 28 - Parent/Teacher Conferences (shortened day)
- November 3 - Late Start Day (shadowing allowed, but day is shortened.)
- November 11 - Late Start Day (shadowing allowed, but day is shortened.)
- November 26 to November 28 - Thanksgiving Break (No School)
We limit the number of visitors per day to ensure each 8th grader has a normal school day experience.
