Shadow Days

Shadow days are a great way for students in grades 8 - 11 to experience a day in the life of a Santa Margarita student and get a feel for our campus culture. Shadow Days take place on all-periods and regular day schedules and the times will vary accordingly. 

The first shadow date open to current 7th grade students is April 15, 2024

RAlLY DAY EXPERIENCEThe Rally Day Experience is now full. More dates coming soon.

Different than a Shadow Day, the Rally Day Experience will allow eighth grade students to see the true spirit of the Santa Margarita student body and is open to eighth grade students only. Students will NOT be visiting any classrooms, but will attend four different informative sessions, exploring and learning about varying aspects of our campus along the way as well as attending our Homecoming Pep Rally, where they will experience the true SPIRIT of the SMCHS campus. Rally Day is limited to 100 students. Lunch is included. Students should wear either a blue, gold or white shirt with jeans or shorts. Shorts need to have a minimum of a four-inch inseam.
