In wearing the uniform of Saint Dorothy School, each child represents to the public the values of the school. Those who wear the uniform proudly make the statement that here at Saint Dorothy, we dress up for learning. Manner of dress can have a strong influence on classroom environment and we believe that our uniform adds to the positive calm.
Neatness and cleanliness in personal attire are part of a child’s education and the responsibility of parent and child. When a child looks and feels good about himself/herself, he/she acts and works accordingly. Personal appearance that constitutes a distraction is not permitted.
