Considering that fashions change from year to year and season to season, parents feel pressure from their children to provide them with the latest peer-pleasing designs. School uniforms reduce the cost of keeping up since it remains the same day after day, year after year. The cost, in relation to fashion merchandise, is very appealing over the long term. Studies show that students required to maintain a neat appearance and to coordinate their wardrobe within the established bounds are likely to carry over these habits to the performance of their schoolwork. Using school uniforms is a positive method of establishing good habits and promoting a climate for discipline and responsibility. The positive academic-related results associated with school uniforms are a result of coordinated effort by students, parents, and administration. It is intended that adherence to the school uniform dress code guidelines be a cooperative effort by both home and school. School uniforms must be purchased through True Grits School Uniforms (our school code is GCC142).
