VISIT FOR A DAY
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

- 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!

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.
