Remember when you were in elementary or middle school, and they used to read announcements over the loudspeaker at the beginning of each day? Well, in these modern times, those announcements are also e-mailed to the parents each day. Yesterday, a string of three items on the announcement list made me chuckle:
ITEM #1: DRESS CODE REMINDER
The warm weather is approaching quickly. All students are reminded of the dress code which is stated in the student handbook. Students violating the dress code will be asked to change. Please see the dress code below:
Clothing that unreasonably exposes the midriff or has an unreasonably low neckline is not permitted in the school building during school hours. The list of restricted items includes: backless to the waist tops and dresses, tube tops, and miniskirts/dresses or shorts that are shorter than mid-thigh. Undergarments must not be visible. Clothing which is not worn appropriately, not properly fastened, or with tears or holes that are indecent will not be permitted.
ITEM #2: CLOTHING DRIVE THIS SATURDAY!!!!!!
Time to Spring Clean-out those closets and bring it all to school!!! The Clothing Drive is to benefit the PTA
Date: Saturday, April 16th – Time: 9:00 to 3:00
Items Accepted: Clothing, shoes, linens, toys, and stuffed animals.
ITEM #3: WORD OF THE WEEK
The new Word of the Week is “arbitrary”, an adjective. According to Webster’s Dictionary, arbitrary means, “based on or determined by individual preference,”

- There’s a dress code. Some of the clothes you may own are not acceptable at school. Here’s a rough list of the kinds of clothes you can’t wear to school
- Have any extra clothes you don’t wear anymore? Donate them to the PTA!
- This week’s word of the week: “arbitrary.” If you think of a way to use it in a sentence this week…
