To Be, Rather Than to Seem

Helpful Hints

Pre-K students wear their school uniform three days a week and their PE uniform one day a week, and an outfit or color corresponding to the letter they are studying that week (i.e. yellow during Y week, jeans during J week). Pre-K students leave a PE uniform in their cubbies in case of emergency.

Beginning in kindergarten, students attend PE twice a week.

Boys typically wear the blue polo.

Starting in third grade, girls typically prefer the skort instead of the jumper.
