Uniforms

The dress code for the St. Thomas/St. John Seventh-day Adventist School exists to enhance the appearance of the student body and promote self-esteem and pride in performance.  Parents and students may not always agree with the standards of the school, but cooperation in this matter is necessary if a student is to remain in school.  The administration believes that “a person’s character is judged by his style of dress.  A refined taste, a cultivated mind, will be revealed in the choice of simple and appropriate attire.”  Education p.248. 

Modesty and appropriateness of attire are ideals to strive after.  Neatness in dress, personal cleanliness and good grooming are characteristics of Seventh-day Adventists and should be so of students attending an Adventist institution.  Students are expected to change their uniforms frequently or have them neat and clean at all times.  The design of the school uniform and the choice of material recommended satisfy, in our opinion, the standard aimed at. 

Students attending this school are required to be in uniform always except in extenuating circumstances which must be explained in writing and presented to the administration. 

Physical Education Shoes

The required Physical Education (PE) uniform consists of (1) St. Thomas/St. John Seventh-day Adventist School  PE Gym shorts; (2) St. Thomas/St. John Seventh-day Adventist School  PE T-shirt; and (3) tennis shoes (sneakers).  The gym pants and t-shirts are available for sale at the school’s Business Office. 

Junior High and High school students must bring P.E shoes to school on the day of P.E., and may wear them only for that period and not to other classes.  Elementary school students are allowed to wear P.E. shoes throughout the day(s) on the day of P.E. class.
