2022-2023 Dress Code

DAILY DRESS CODE – excerpt from the MGCS Student Handbook

The guiding principles for school apparel and personal appearance are modesty, appropriateness and neatness, as well as an alignment with the student’s biblical identity in Christ. The MGCS dress code is designed to create an atmosphere that is both conducive to sound educational practices and reflective of modesty and consideration of others.

Tops:

  • Kindergarten through 5th grade girls may wear white, navy blue, dark green or burgundy short or long sleeved classic collared polo shirts with buttons without a logo.  6th- 8th graders may wear any solid color shirt or long sleeved classic collared polo shirt without a logo.  Polo shirts may not be form fitting.

WEDNESDAYS, FRIDAYS, CASUAL DAYS, and SPIRIT DAYS DRESS CODE

– excerpt from the MGCS Student Handbook

All Wednesdays – Students may wear their MGCS 40th Anniversary t-shirt with dress code-approved bottoms.

All Fridays – Students may wear any MGCS t-shirt or MGCS Spirit Wear shirt, along with dress code bottoms.

Casual Days – The FIRST FRIDAY of each month is designated as Casual Dress Day. During casual dress day, students should abide by the following guidelines:

Pants and Shorts – Students may wear jeans or other approved uniform bottoms. Students may NOT wear spandex pants, cotton stretch pants, sweat pants, or other athletic pants with an elastic waistband.  All pants should be worn at or near the waist as intended.  No athletic shorts or other shorts with an elastic waistband are allowed.  If wearing shorts, they must have at least a 7” inseam. They may not be rolled.

Shirts/Tops – Casual dress may include T-shirts. T-shirts must be in good condition and not have any inappropriate words, artwork, or “groups” featured on them whose work is contrary to the philosophy of MGCS.  Tank, midriff, halter, low-cut, tight-fitting, see-through, form-fitting or cropped tops are not allowed.

Spirit Days – Throughout the year you will hear about special Spirit Dress Days, for example: Green and White Day and Dress Like You’re 100 Years old. Casual Day guidelines – while sticking to the theme of the day – will apply.
