On Nov. 29, 26 chosen eighth graders from Veterans, Kerr, Nathan Hale and Hamlin Middle Schools, were invited to come to Eisenhower and have an opportunity to see how a day of high school works.

Shadow day is a day for eighth graders to come see potential classes that they would like to take in the future, and to see how high school is.

These students were selected by their teachers or by completing an online form.

Salvador Verduzco is an eighth grader from Veterans Memorial Middle school. He stated that Shadow Day does help the incoming freshman because “you get to see what your getting into.”

According to Ms. Juanita Lopez, Dean of Students, the day went as planned.

“They saw some pretty great things, they learned about our athletics and our activities. I think, overall it was very successful”, says Lopez.

Eisenhower plans to have another shadow day on Jan. 31, 2018.
