Dress Code
.
 
Great friends!  Thank you God!
"My value and my
self-worth come from
Jesus Christ --
not from what I wear."



The dress code is intended for the following purposes:




Behavior - There is a relationship between the way one dresses and the way one behaves.

Modesty - a Biblical principle.

Equality - to minimize social distinctions.

Focus
- to reduce focus on outward appearance.





The assistance of parents is needed to guide students in applying the principles of the dress code.

Students are expected to dress in good taste as Christian young people for school-sponsored activities both on and off campus.

The school staff, and adults who assist with school activities, are role models for the students.  The staff follows a professional dress code.

Parents or other adults who assist teachers, help with Home and School, hot lunches, field trips, or other school activities are also expected to set a positive example in their dress.
