The girls are to be dressed in Church attire. Dresses may not be strapless or low cut. Spaghetti strap dresses are not permitted.
The boys should be dressed in a suit or dress pants, a shirt and tie, socks and dress shoes.
CLASSROOM PARTIES/STUDENT BIRTHDAYS
Special days such as Halloween, Christmas, St. Valentine’s Day may be observed with a classroom party or treat. Parties are scheduled for the last 30 minutes of the day.
Teachers will not plan parties without permission of the Principal.
If parents wish to recognize a child’s birthday, they may choose to make a book contribution to the school library at a cost of $5.00. The child is invited to choose their favorite book and a new book is ordered. This new book will bear a specialized sticker indicating the recognition of the student and their birthday. Birthday treats are still permitted but the treat must be wrapped or contained in a plastic baggie so that it can be easily distributed at the close of the school day. Cupcakes, ice cream, soda and fruit juices are no longer permitted for birthday celebrations.
There will be no exchange of gifts among students at Christmas. This causes undue hardships for families. Arrangements for private parties including the distribution of invitations may not be transacted during school hours.
