Greetings from Dr. G
August 31, 2019
While we have a shortened week coming up, it is packed. Be sure to check out the dates to know later in the newsletter.
Picture day is Wednesday, September 4th. We are allowing scholars to dress up for picture day but this is NOT a dress down day. Ripped pants, t-shirts, or sweats are not acceptable.
Upon reflection and analysis of the dress code, the administrative team has made the following changes to the dress code. We appreciate your help in making sure scholars are adhering to the dress code. Parents will be contacted if scholars are chronically failing to follow the dress code.
Tops should be red, yellow (any shade), white, light blue, navy blue, or black.
Tops should have a collar (unless it’s spirit wear)
Tops should be free of large images and inappropriate language
Shorts, skirts, and dresses must be longer than finger-tip at arm’s length
Shorts are only permissible 1st and 4th quarter
Colors - tan/khaki, navy or black
No blue jeans or sweats
Bottoms should not be form fitting
Shoes must be appropriate for school. Please, no open toed sandals, slides, or flip flops
Students may wear tops with hood but should not have the hood up.
Have a restful and rejuvenating holiday weekend. We will see your scholars on Tuesday!
Our Cougars are Engaged in and out of the Classroom!
