Boys and girls may wear either navy blue or khaki pants.  These may be purchased from Fischer Uniform, our uniform supplier. If purchased from another source they must be plain “Dickie” type pants that are not form fitting, do not flair at the bottom and have no stitching, cargo pockets or other decoration or details.  They must be navy blue or khaki and not any other shade.   A belt must be worn with all pants in grades 5-8.

The PE  short  is also the optional uniform short from the beginning of school through October 15 and from April 15 through the end of the school year.  During this time shorts may be worn to Mass unless the child is a reader, in which case we ask that he/she wear long pants, the uniform skirt or the uniform jumper .

PE Shirts:  Students in grades 5th thru 8th may bring a solid color shirt to change into during PE as long as the shirt follows our free-dress guidelines.
