Historically, L.I. and St. Johnsbury Academy have worked with us to schedule group shadow days.  I expect that we will do the same this year and that this will occur in late winter/early spring.  I will be in touch to let you know as we get closer to that time.  If your child is interested in visiting/shadowing at one of the other schools, you may contact them on your own; however, if you need assistance with this, please contact me.

 Sincerely yours,

Lauren Grader-Fox, School Counselor
