Marion Mix Elementary Parents and Guardians, I want to thank you

Marion Mix Elementary Parents and Guardians,
I want to thank you all for participating in voting for our school’s Dress Policy for the
students of Marion Mix Elementary.
Our goal is promote a school culture that encourages students to look tidy, organized,
and ready to learn. Students need clothing that fits appropriately so they are
comfortable, focused, and do not distract the learning of others.
By an overwhelming majority (74% to 26%), our families voted on Partial and/or Full
Uniform Option choice as described below. This essentially means that students will
wear one of three uniform color TOPS and have a choice for jeans, khaki, or dark
colored BOTTOMS. Items listed below are examples of what a student may wear within
our Dress Policy.
Additionally, we will offer Spirit Wear to be worn on designated days and Polos with our
school mascot/logo. You will be notified once these will be made available. Our hope is
most will be able to take advantage of the online pricing that Walmart and/or Old Navy
provides for Royal Blue and Kelly Green. We will order some items in various sizes and
make those available in the office so parents can see the products in person before
purchasing online.
