Shadowing Opportunities at Lake:

Lake offers an opportunity for 5th graders to spend time at Lake Middle School.  Shadowing students are paired with a 6th grade Lake Scholar, attend classes with that student and get an inside look at student life at Lake.  Students should bring a free-reading book, notebook and pencil.

Shadowing takes place on Tuesday mornings from 7:25am-9:45am. Shadowing Opportunities are available October through February. Space is extremely limited.
