Primary School Uniform Awareness

Parents, help us adhere to our uniform expectations in the Primary School, by following these simple guidelines:

  • Low-heeled athletic shoes must be worn (with socks). NO shoes with flashing lights are permitted!
  • NO sweatpants are to be worn
  • No leggings or tights for boys
  • Girls may wear mostly white or navy tights/leggings in cold weather.
  • NO headbands with ears or unicorn horns…it’s hard to focus on math, sitting next to a unicorn!

Activities will focus on mental and physical spy “training” as we dive into spy missions, puzzle solving, code cracking, along with strength and agility competitions. Students learn how to work as a team as they discover their strengths and weaknesses. The semester will culminate in a treasure hunt where children earn their spy credentials and secret spy name.
