Shadow Days and Parent Observation Days

Shadow Day Eligibility & Scheduling:

  • Shadow days are available for any prospective student who will be entering Kindergarten through 12th grade in the fall of 2023. 
  • Limited shadow opportunities are available for students who will be eligible to enter PreK 4 (must turn age 4 by September 1st) in the fall of 2023.
  • Shadow Days are scheduled on Tuesdays and Fridays as space permits.
  • Kindergarten - 11th grade students will shadow classes for the grade they are currently in. 
  • Preschool age children who are eligible to enroll in Kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year may shadow either the PreK4 enrichment class with their peers or the Kindergarten class.
  • Parents of students who are currently in Preschool or Kindergarten must remain with their child for the duration of their shadow day. (Please make other arrangements for younger siblings as we are not able to accommodate babies and toddlers during the shadow days.) 
  • Parents of students in 1st-11th grades are encouraged to observe classes while their student is shadowing but it is not required.  If you wish to observe classes with your 1st - 11th grader, please make other arrangements for younger siblings as we are not able to accommodate babies and toddlers during the shadow days.
  • Parents and siblings of all ages are welcome to join us to observe Chapel on Fridays from 1:45 to 2:15pm. 
  • All shadow students must have a Shadow Day Permission form on file.  Please click the button above to print and complete the form. Please scan and email the completed form to admin@hopeacademyhbc.org PRIOR TO YOUR SHADOW DAY

What to Expect & What To Bring:

  • Students must come to class prepared to learn and be a part of the class. Disruptive students may be asked to leave the class.
  • All shadowing students must bring a back-pack with basic school supplies (notebook, folder, pencils, colored pencils/crayons/markers, scissors, etc.) and a water bottle. 
  • Dress code for Shadow Days: long pants (clean and in good repair i.e. no holes), Plain shirt (no graphics or sayings), socks and tennis shoes.
  • If joining us for lunch, please pack your student a sack lunch. (We do not have refrigerators or microwaves available for student use.)
