Dress Code Reminder: From our Agenda

DRESS CODE 

The main purpose of a school dress code is to assist staff, students and parents to create a safer and  respectful learning environment.  Staff and students will support the dress code by dressing in a manner which demonstrates respect for oneself, others and the Christian values of our school.

The following dress code guidelines must be adhered to (including school excursions):

  • Tops must be modest, and overlap the pants.
  • The straps on sleeveless tops must measure at least 3 fingers across with no undergarments showing.
  • Hemmed shorts, walking shorts, skirts, and dresses must be mid-thigh or longer in length.
  • Only clothing with positive messages and pictures are permitted.
  • Tight fitting clothing and pajama tops and bottoms are not acceptable.
  • Hats and headwear are not to be worn inside the school, however, we do encourage their use when outside.
  • All clothing and symbols associated with youth gangs are prohibited. This includes headbands, bandanas, and kerchiefs.
  • Two pairs of shoes (indoor running shoes and general outdoor shoes) are necessary at all times. For safety reasons, please do not wear sandals or crocs during play periods.
  • Students are encouraged to wear running shoes or shoes that cover the entire foot when playing on our creative playground structure for their safety.

Please review these dress code guidelines with your son/daughter.

Thanks so much for your continued support.

Lost and Field

Dear Families,

There are many items that have made their way to our school’s LOST AND FOUND area. These items, mostly clothing, will be at our school until FRIDAY, MAY 11. After that, anything that is still remaining will be donated. 

You are invited to drop by the school to have a look at our Lost and Found table to see if any of your child’s items are there. If this is not possible, perhaps you could give a friendly reminder to your child to go to the table to retrieve their lost items. A little reminder note in their lunch bag or in their agenda to do this, could be very helpful!

Thank you in advance for your support.
