PE uniforms are to be worn to all PE classes; failure to comply will result in a lowered grade.

 

Preschool

Uniform is optional. Preschool students should dress modestly and comfortably in clothing that is appropriate for activities such as painting, activity circles, and outdoor play. Shoes should be closed toed and have a back. Preschool students should dress casually, comfortably and in a manner consistent with Christian principles. Please discourage children from dressing in a “pop-style fashion”. We want children to look like children.

 

Uniform Expectations for Cold Weather

During cold weather students may only wear solid white, gray, or navy turtlenecks, sweatshirts, windbreakers, fleece jackets, or cardigan sweaters inside the buildings. Long sleeved polos, fleece, and sweatshirts with the school logo are available at The Golden Egg and may be worn. All FCA logo items are acceptable. No other outerwear may be worn inside. Non-FCA apparel must be plain and free from logos. Other colors of plain hoodies, coats, jackets, etc., may be kept in a student’s locker, cubby, or backpack and may be worn outside only but these will be phased out over the next year.
