What to Expect During Your Shadow Experience

Breakfast Club

  • Your scheduled session will begin at 7:20 a.m. in the Bishop Chatard Cafeteria. Please drop off your student at Door #10 (athletic entrance on the north end of the back paved parking lot) where he/she will meet their shadow host.
  • Shadowing begins with a complimentary breakfast! This includes breakfast items, juice, and water.
  • You will be paired with a shadow host for your visit. Shadow hosts are students who have applied and been approved for this important responsibility. We will do our best to match each prospective student with a BCHS student who has similar classes and interests. We cannot guarantee a specific host, if requested, will be available.
  • Dress for shadowing is “school-type attire.” (Please no jeans, sweatshirts, sweatpants or t-shirts.) Appropriate attire includes khaki or black pants, shirts with collars or sweaters. Current school uniforms can also be worn.
  • We ask that all cell phones and all electronic devices be left at home. If you must bring a cell phone, please keep it in a bag or pocket.
  • The shadowing session ends at 11:30 a.m. Students will need to be picked up at the St. Benedict Center (the small building directly south of the main building). Please note, this is a different location from the morning drop-off..
  • If you cannot make your scheduled shadow session, please notify Mrs. Annee as soon as possible.

Thank you for your interest in shadowing Bishop Chatard High School!

RT @cliffWISH8 The run this team is on, on paper, is remarkable. 13-0. Best start in school history. No one saw it coming. However, 'remarkable' doesn't do the coach you are staring at justice. Don't have enough time, or tears, to explain here. Full story ahead @WISH_TV at 5:50PM & 6:40PM
