Our students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 are required to wear uniforms. Our school uniforms should be purchased at:
2000 Governors Circle - Opening Soon
Web ID Code for OSL = 77091
We require uniforms as part of our overall commitment to creating a formal learning environment that encourages self-discipline and respect for peers and elders. A school uniform should not be a gimmick meant to create the illusion of discipline. Our uniform policy is simply an extension of our discipline policy.
Walk in any classroom (be sure to get a security clearance first) at Our Savior during class and the entire student body will stop what they are doing, rise as one, and greet you. They will remain standing until you greet them in return and wait for further instruction by the teacher. We practice this. We do so because we believe we are teaching several lessons:
- Respect for classroom instruction
- Respect for the instructor
- Respect for the elder visitor
- Respect for themselves
So too, our uniform policy reinforces these lessons. It tells them that there is something different about school that requires their respect and attention. It is not a place for sloppy dress or to see who can display the latest fad fashion.
