While tours and meeting with our principals often give parents the opportunity to have their questions addressed, we recognize it is helpful for the prospective student to also have an opportunity to learn about ASCS. We welcome students to have their questions answered and at the same time share with them what a typical day at All Saints Catholic School feels like by having them join us for a Shadow Day!
What steps are necessary to Shadow at All Saints Catholic School?
We ask that a parent or guardian contact our office to schedule a day for their child to visit/shadow at our school. Reservations for a shadow day are required and can be made by contacting the Sue Wendorf either via email at [email protected] or by phone (262) 925-4024.
Who is eligible to participate in a Shadow Day?
The Shadow Program is open to any prospective K4-8th grade ASCS students that are discerning an All Saints Catholic School education. The student may shadow for a half day or whole school day.
Who will I shadow with and which grade will I shadow in?
If you have been referred by a friend that is in the same grade and would like your child to shadow with that person, we will try to accommodate your request. We also place prospective students in a class of their current grade level. We have found this to be beneficial for students shadowing at All Saints Catholic School as they are given the opportunity to meet and interact with students that will be their classmates should you decide to enroll. We typically try to partner your student with a current student that has similar interests. The goal is to give your student the best representation of ASCS, as well as the opportunity to meet and interact with new students.
Are there specific dates for Shadow Day?
We do not have pre-set Shadow Days. Shadow days are scheduled upon request. Questions or concerns regarding the Shadow Day schedule can be directed to Sue Wendorf (262) 925-4024, or via email to [email protected].
What is the dress code for the day?
ASCS has a uniform for its students. We don’t expect that Shadow Students dress in uniform attire, however we do ask that shadow students wear clothes that are neat, clean, without rips, holes, etc. and do not fall below the standard of our dress code. If your child is shadowing on a day that we have Mass, jeans are not permitted.
Does my child need to bring a lunch?
Any student that participates in a Shadow Day will be offered hot lunch in the morning when checking into the attendance office. We are happy to give students the opportunity to take hot lunch (no charge) as it gives them an opportunity to experience the hot lunch that is offered daily to our children. Your child will have the choice between two menu options. Our lunch menu can be found under our quick links. He/she may instead bring a cold lunch with an option to take milk if you prefer.
Are there any other materials that my child should bring for Shadow Day?
We suggest that shadow students bring a book or other reading material during the day of their shadow should there be an exam in one of the classes in which they are shadowing. Students are also welcome to bring a notebook and a writing instrument to keep on hand throughout the day.
I have registered for a Shadow Day. Is there anything else I need to know?
We ask that you arrive at 7:30 AM the day of your scheduled shadow visit. Report to the attendance office and a member of the ASCS staff will be in the office to greet you and introduce you to the student you will be shadowing with. At this time, we will ask you to complete a contact form should we need to reach you throughout the day. Shadow students will be dismissed at the end of the school day, unless an earlier time is requested.
If you have further questions about our Shadow Days, please do not hesitate to contact Sue Wendorf (262)925-4024 or via email at [email protected].
