Uniform Policy

Carden Conservatory

Uniform Information

 

Carden Conservatory is proud of its uniform policy. We believe that a student’s appearance has a direct impact on his or her attitude, behavior, and academic performance at school. Uniforms foster school pride and are praised as a convenience by our parents. Uniforms also instill a sense of modesty and decorum and help students to realize that there is an appropriate dress for the proper time and place. Uniforms also serve to reduce distractions from the real purpose of school, which is to learn, not make fashion comparisons. This uniform policy is designed to free children to appreciate the deeper qualities of their classmates. Because children’s attention is not as focused on superficial, surface differences, there is greater acceptance among peers and discourages “cliquish” behavior.

 

Monday and certain assembly days are our Official Carden Uniform Days. On all other days our optional uniforms may be worn. Students are required to wear their Carden Conservatory maroon shirts on Fridays and field trip days. Sandals and backless shoes are not permitted. Children in grades 5th-8th are required to dress out for P.E.

 

All uniforms are available through Vicki Marsha Uniforms or through the Land’s End catalog.
