Reminders & Announcements

UNIFORM CONTEST  

Our classroom uniform inspections have been going great! Each class that is fully compliant will recieve a treat and be entered into a drawing for a free dress down day and class party.

The office will be judging and looking for these things based on guidelines from our website:

  • Uniform top-collared shirt and either flag red, navy blue, white, baby blue, butter yellow or hunter green.
  • Uniform bottoms--blue or tan--no jeans. Leggings may be worn under skirts, but not as pants. Skirts and shorts must be knee length.
  • Name badge.
  • Any jackets worn in class must be school color and no logos or embellishments.
  • Shoes must be closed toe and no lights.
  • Socks that are mid-calf or below can be any color but any socks, tights or leggings above mid-calf must be uniform color.

We encourage parents to review these rules with your scholars and send them to school ready to be rewarded for being in uniform.
