School Uniform

The dress code for St. Monica Catholic School students is intended to encourage a neat appearance consistent with our values and appropriate to a learning environment. A uniform sets the tone for each school day - showing that students are ready to work hard, aiming for high standards and caring for one another equally. 

We expect all pupils to wear the correct uniform every day and to feel proud both of the way they look and the school they represent. 

Personal appearance

  • Hair color should be natural. Extreme hairstyles, color or hair art are not allowed. 
  • A modest amount of natural make-up is acceptable.
  • Nails should be kept short. Neutral nail colors are permitted.

Technology

Cellphones and Smartwatches are NOT to be used or worn during the school day. However, students can turn them into their teachers for safekeeping during the day.

Why School Uniforms Matter

Uniforms are practical, economical, reinforce a school’s traditions and educational vision—and they make it a snap to get ready for school!

Decades of study and research prove that uniforms produce a wide range of benefits for communities, schools, parents and students. The pressure tied to fashion in schools can be intense. That’s where a uniform comes in. By adhering to a uniform, we eliminate the socioeconomic tension driven by fashion trends and high-end brands while increasing safety on campus and distinguishing students within their community.

Daily Uniform

  • Should be clean and proper fitting – to promote good hygiene. 
  • Wear regular uniform every day other than Wednesday (can be worn on Wednesdays if preferred).
  • Full uniform (includes green sweater or vest with logo) for Mass on Fridays
  • Only St. Monica Sweaters - no other MI or Non-St. Monica sweatshirts 
  • All uniform pieces below must be purchased through Dennis Uniform only

Parents, we hear you! So many of you have asked for a more streamlined uniform policy, with clearer options and a more polished look overall for our students. We are excited to announce we are making changes for the 24-25 school year based on your input. We are getting the word out now to help families plan before making purchases of our soon-to-be retired uniform options, although we will have a one-year grace period for recently purchased sweatshirts as we make this transition. New uniform pieces will be available beginning May 1, 2024.

To help families get acquainted with DENNIS and ready to shop this year, they have created a Welcome Kit– their go-to guide for all things DENNIS. This kit is full of in-depth, useful information, including a step-by-step guide to shopping online and support for sizing and fit needs.
