Come Shadow at FGR!

We invite all 7th and 8th graders to come visit and experience a day in the life of an FGR student. Visiting students will be paired with one of our trained Student Ambassadors who shares similar interests. This is a great way to become familiar with the school, meet students and teachers, and discover the exciting things taking place at FGR!

Helpful Notes About Your Shadow Day


  • Arrive by 7:45 a.m. in our Main Office: School begins at 7:55 a.m. and you will need time to meet your student ambassador.
  • Parents are invited to tour the school at the beginning or end of the day.
  • Pick-up time is 3 p.m. Parents can meet their child in the parking lot or our Main Office, whatever you prefer!
  • A reminder email will be sent prior to your scheduled day.

What to Wear

  • Current school uniform, if your student has one.
  • Anything similar to our FGR uniform, i.e. solid polo, skirt, khakis or neutral-colored pants.
  • Certain designated Fridays are “Dress Down” days which are optional and often a fundraiser for a particular school group.  On these days, students are allowed to wear jeans. Dress-down days are FREE for all shadowing students! Contact us or check our calendar to find out if your Shadow Day is a Dress Down day.

What to Eat

  • Regular Lunch Day – A boxed lunch will be provided for all shadow students.  Please let us know if your student has any dietary restrictions.
  • Snacks – There are sandwiches and snacks in the vending machines for student use.
