    Student Shadow Days

    Is your student curious about what it would be like to attend CMS for a day? How do the classes work when you have more than one teacher? What electives are offered? What do lunch and brunch feel like?   Now they can find out! “Shadow Days” are an opportunity for your student to be paired with a CMS student for a half-day to experience CMS first-hand.   (FYI -- There is also an official “5th Grade Visit Day” in March where all 5th graders from Bishop, Fairwood, Lakewood and San Miguel come to CMS for three hours for a tour, elective performances, etc.)  Click here to sign up for Student Shadow Day:  Parent Tour and Student Shadow Day Request Form
