Benefits of School Uniforms
The pressure tied to fashion in schools can be intense. That’s where a uniform comes in. With a uniform program, we eliminate the socioeconomic tension driven by fashion trends and high-end brands only some families can afford, while increasing safety on campus and distinguishing students within their community.
Uniforms are practical, economical, reinforce a school’s traditions and educational vision—and they make it a snap to get ready for school!

PHYSICAL EDUCATION UNIFORMS NOW AT LAND’S END
All students in Grades 4-8 are required to have a uniform for Physical Education classes. These uniforms are the same for boys and girls and consist of green knit shorts with the school logo on the left side, the white polo shirt or an acceptable white t-shirt. New this year, a PE t-shirt with the St. Monica logo is available through Land’s End. All students, regardless of grade, must wear gym shoes during Physical Education class.
Official Spirit Wear is purchased through Cloud 9 Sports during the first two weeks of September. Cloud 9 Sports is an online store providing t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, baseball caps, PJ’s* and more.
Remember Spirit Wear can be worn in place of the uniform on Wednesdays! *No PJ’s on spirit wear Wednesdays*
On Free Dress days students may wear appropriate, neat clothing which may include jeans, khakis, athletic pants, cargo pants, Capri pants or appropriate shorts or skirts. Shirts may include T-Shirts, golf shirts and team shirts or jerseys. Clothing must be modest in appearance and must not be disruptive to the educational process.
Clothing that is not allowed includes miniskirts, shirts with spaghetti straps, tank tops and t-shirts with offensive or inappropriate language or content or any torn or ripped clothing, bicycle pants, tattered jeans or pants, clothes that are skintight or are excessive in size, low riding pants or low cut tops. Bare midriffs are unacceptable. Hats are not allowed. The rule of thumb is that if you need to ask if it’s appropriate, it probably isn’t appropriate.
