    FREE DRESS INCENTIVE

    Students who meet criteria for exceptional behavior or academic success can earn free dress.  Most commonly, students who have "clean" STAR cards for the week are allowed free dress the following Monday.  This will be marked on their STAR card on Friday.  Students must still adhere to what is considered as Unacceptable Clothing.

     

    SCHOOL SPIRIT SHIRTS
