5th and 6th grade students must wear sneakers to participate in class. Students should wear comfortable clothes to school - for example, sports shorts/pants and a t-shirt. Students are able to wear sweatshirts over their t-shirts. Students cannot wear any jewelry, including fitness trackers of any kind. Post earrings and any religious items that cannot be removed are permitted. Please remember that jewelry can often fall off, get lost, or snag on others' clothing and cause injuries. Please do not wear anything that cannot be replaced if lost or damaged.
Clothes must follow school dress code regulations.
5th and 6th graders will have the option to change. All students are expected to be in their attendance spot 5 minutes after the start of class. Regardless of the choice to change, jewelry, jackets, and other items not permitted in class should be placed in the locker room. It is recommended that all students bring a change of clothes just in case the need or desire to change arises. In addition, all students should bring deodorant.
