K-Sixth Grade

    School uniforms promote respect for individuals, develop good personal habits, and enhance self-esteem while providing an environment that reflects our Catholic tradition, our mission statement and our school pride.

All clothing must fit properly: neither too tight nor too loose. Uniforms must provide enough coverage so that students may sit, stand, bend-over, play, etc. without skin showing at the waist. Clothing is not to be torn, frayed, or stained.
