Uniforms
Students are expected to wear our uniform with pride. Personal appearance is consistent with standards of good taste
and appropriate for school and school events. Any dress or wearing of insignia conveying the image of gang
membership, supporting the beliefs of hate groups, making sexual innuendos, or promoting drugs, alcohol, or tobacco
is inappropriate for school and is not allowed and is subject to disciplinary action on the part of the school
administration. 
Catholic Supply supplies our school uniform and Sew Many Logos supplies the PE uniform. When we change our
clocks, we change our uniforms to seasonal uniforms, appropriate to summer and winter. Students wear gym uniforms
to school on PE days. Occasionally, for special celebrations, students may be asked to change into their PE uniform
following Mass. Students in grades or clubs that have a special shirt or sweatshirt, those are to be worn on the sameday as decided with the moderator and/or principal. Having students choose random days for these t-shirts defeats the
purpose of belonging to the group and promoting the organization.
