Uniforms

All students should come to school in clean uniforms. Statistically it has been proven that students who wear uniforms take their studies more seriously, and students who “look sharp” are actually sharper in class. Give your child the “edge” by providing him or her with clean, neat, pressed clothing that fits properly. Also make sure that your child brushes his or her hair and teeth each morning before leaving for school.
