This Tuesday (the day before our five day weekend) we will be having a special Dollars for Duds to benefit the family of Dr. Thompson, a teacher at our other campus who is not expected to make it after contracting covid. All proceeds from this Dollars for Duds will go to his family so please consider participating and making additional donations if you are able. Thank you!
On Dollars for Duds days, scholars are allowed to wear non-uniform clothing (INCLUDING JEANS) that meet Heritage Standards. $1.00 for shirt and $1.00 for pants/shorts. Wristbands purchased for participation must be worn on your scholar’s wrist throughout the day. Dollars for Duds is optional and scholars do not have to participate.
Heritage Standard means: no sleeveless or midriff shirts; shorts must be 4″ from the middle of the knee and skirts must come to the middle of the knee: no cargo pants or shorts; no pants or shorts that are ripped or torn; no leggings; no inappropriate slogans or symbols on the clothing; and NO PAJAMAS.
If a scholar is wearing inappropriate clothing, they will be dress coded and will need to change into uniforms we have on hand in the office.
CALLING ALL JUNIOR HIGH SCHOLARS….
Be prepared and do your best to remember all of the items you will need for class, sports, and extracurriculars each day.
We understand things happen and sometimes items get forgotten. If the forgotten items are brought to school, they will need to be signed in at our Oops Table to the right as you enter the lobby. Complete the form and attach it to the forgotten item. SCHOLAR WILL BE CALLED DOWN BETWEEN CLASSES TO PICK UP THE ITEM. WE WILL NOT DELIVER THE ITEMS TO CLASS.
