PE UNIFORMS       

Students in grades 6 and up will dress out for PE.  Students may wear an EMCS or plain t-shirt with black, blue, or gray knee-length athletic shorts or athletic pants. (Blue jeans are not appropriate.) Appropriate athletic shoes must be worn with socks.  Teachers will announce exceptions when class assignments do not necessitate P.E. dress. 

IDENTIFICATION OF CLOTHING

Name tapes or clear laundry markings should be in all sweaters, jackets, coats or other clothing, which may be hung up at school, even for the length of PE period.  The school cannot be responsible for tracking down the ownership of clothing articles not clearly identified.  Clothing left unclaimed for 30 days at school may be given to the Salvation Army or another ministry.  Please check the lost and found basket located outside Joanna Ames’ classroom if your child loses something.

RULES OF APPEARANCE

Boys are to have hair neatly trimmed and combed with hair off of the ears, off the collar, and out of their eyes.  Flexibility would allow the hair to extend to the midpoint of the ear as an absolute maximum.  Sideburns will not extend past the middle of the ear, and will be neatly trimmed and straight.  Boys are to be clean-shaven with no beards or mustaches. Girls and boys are not to have tattoos, extreme hairstyles (including spiked and/or dyed hair for boys, spiked hair for girls), or body piercing (except for girls' ears).  Girls are not to wear earrings anywhere on the ear except for the lobes (one per lobe).  Boys are not to wear earrings. Boys and girls in grades 2nd and up are to have shirts neatly tucked into their pants or skirts.  Boys and girls in 2nd grade and up must wear belts with their shorts or pants. Boys are to wear plain white t-shirts or white turtlenecks as undershirts.  Boys should not wear any type of jewelry except for a watch unless specifically approved by the administration.  All clothing must be hemmed.  Students must wear tennis shoes and socks or school-appropriate shoes and socks or other leg covering (tights).  All shoelaces must be tied.  Students who play on the playground must wear socks and shoes with backs.  Warm outerwear (jackets, non-sanctioned jackets, sweaters, etc.) is not to be worn once a student is inside the building.  Red and navy cardigans/v-neck pullovers, fleece jackets, and EMCS sweatshirts are available as part of the school uniform.  The fleece may be worn as travel dress.  The administration reserves the right to deem an individual’s attire or appearance inappropriate and will confer with students (and parents, if necessary) to solve the problem.

In our ongoing effort to remove the peer pressure of materialism we find that using a standard dress enables us to emphasize the individuality that is internal in our children.  It has a great leveling influence, and it eliminates competition in the area of different lifestyles.  The child reared in an affluent home and neighborhood no longer derives his self-worth from what he is wearing.  He realizes through the teaching of our curriculum that his self-worth is derived from who he or she is in Christ, making it more realistic.  The less affluent student is dressed as well as everyone else, and his self-worth will improve from a sense of who he or she is in Christ, also.  Uniforms save parents money in comparison with the cost of the designer jeans and shirts which children now request at early ages.  The standard dress uniform looks great and is durable.  Standard dress certainly saves time in the children's getting ready for school in the morning.

CLOTHING FOR CASUAL DAYS

Casual days are special days that allow students to wear clothing other than school uniforms.  They are expected to use good judgement in choosing the clothes that they will wear to school.  If images and/or text appear on shirts, they must be non-controversial.  Slacks, jeans, or knee-length shorts must not be tight, cut, torn, or falling down.  Short shorts and tank tops are not acceptable.  If there is a question as to the appropriateness of clothing, talk to Mr. David before wearing it.
