Gym Uniform

  • Sneakers and white athletic socks

Optional gym sweat suit – Navy blue sweat shirt with the Saint Gabriel emblem and pants with the Saint Gabriel emblem
On gym days the gym uniform is to be worn to school. The Saint Gabriel sweat suit or the regular school uniform is to be worn over the gym uniform. From the beginning of May through mid-October (i.e. when students are in summer uniform), students need not wear the sweat suit over the gym uniform.

Summer Uniform (Optional)

As a general rule, the summer uniform may be worn from the beginning of May through mid-October. Actual dates will be determined each year and parents will be notified by letter and on the monthly calendar.

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Uniform

The Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten children wear a modified uniform to school. From the first day of school through mid-October and May until the end of the year: navy blue gym uniform shorts and any plain white collared knit shirt; from mid-October to May: Saint Gabriel gym sweat pants and Saint Gabriel gym sweat shirt and any plain white collared knit shirt. Obviously, if the weather is exceptionally chilly in September and early May, the children should wear their sweats. Sneakers and socks are to be worn with the modified uniform. Students in Kindergarten may opt to wear the regular uniform instead of the modified uniform.

Personal Appearance

A good personal hygiene routine should be followed daily: ears, neck, and fingernails should be given special attention. When appropriate, children should be instructed in the use of deodorant. Hair should be clean and well-groomed.

Uniforms should be neat and clean. Shoelaces must be tied. Parents will be notified if a child comes to school consistently in an unkempt manner. If no improvement is noticed within a reasonable amount of time, an appointment with the parents will be made by the principal.

Hairstyles

Since hairstyles differ so much in our times, we ask the parents to cooperate with the school so that a reasonable policy can be maintained.

Boys’ hair should not descend below the top of the shirt collar, and should be neat and presentable according to its style in the judgment of the principal. Hair should not be so long that it impedes vision. “Fad” hairstyles and colorings are not permitted. A student with such a haircut will not be admitted to class until it has been changed.

Girls’ hair should be neat and presentable according to its style in the judgment of the principal. Girls with long hair should wear braids, ponytails, or buns. Bangs should not be so long that they impede vision. “Fad” hairstyles and colorings are not permitted. Girls may wear white, navy, or gray hair ribbons or simple barrettes. Scarves and faddish ornamentation are not permitted.

In case of doubt, consult the school beforehand.
