Dress Guidelines for Special Events

Parents often ask, "What do students wear?" We suggest clothing that is a bit dressier than their everyday school attire. Frequently-chosen clothing includes: dress pants, dressy shorts, khakis, blouses, sweaters, dresses, skirts, polo shirts, button-down shirts, jacket and tie. Please remember that clothing must be within dress guidelines.
We ask that students choose shoes that allow them to participate fully in any dance, instrumental or choral activities planned. Third graders, in particular, should select shoes that fit securely to their feet for the traditional May pole dance.
