Sample of Formal Dress for Boys and Girls
Students are expected to be in proper uniform at all times except on special/free dress days designated by the Principal. The administration reserves the right to ask a student to change what is considered inappropriate dress or grooming. Uniforms are worn by all grades, including kindergarten, throughout the entire school year, beginning the first day of class, excluding the last two days of school. Shirts and blouses must be tucked in at all times for all students. No baggy pants or shorts may be worn. Teachers will enforce the uniform policy. If a student is not in the proper uniform dress, he/she will receive an Out-of-Uniform Slip. Three slips received in one trimester will result in a detention.
Formal dress consists of a white collared shirt or blouse, our navy V-neck logo sweater, navy sweater vest and pants. Girls may choose to wear jumper/skirt, as designated by grade level. No students may wear walking shorts, P.E. uniforms, or scouting uniforms on formal dress days. Formal dress is required for students in grades K-8 on days they attend Church and other days indicated on the school calendar.
Uniforms are available at The Merry Mart in Santa Clara. The girls’ jumper and skirt must be purchased at The Merry Mart. Logo wear can be ordered through the Merry Mart website four times a year. Please check the school calendar for order deadlines. White shirts, navy slacks, walking shorts, shoes, and socks can be purchased at Merry Mart or any other store as long as they look the same as The Merry Mart brands.
Students participating in Scouting may wear the complete Scout uniform on the day of his/her meeting only, unless it is a formal dress day.
