Uniforms

IMG_2905

Once a student has completed the enrollment process, parents and students will go to the uniform store to order 4 uniform shirts/blouses. Students should be present to try on and select the proper size. All uniform pieces should be purchased ASAP.

Extra shirts are recommended and may be purchased by the parents to serve as a backup.

The Student Registration fee provides each student with the following:

  • 2 school t-shirts for Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • One swimming suit/trunk

Parents are provide 4 uniform shirts/blouses in red, white, royal blue or light blue, pants, skirts, shoes, belts and any other accessories required. Pants, skirts, and belts may be purchased anywhere are often found at an Old Navy, Target, JC Penny, Sears, LandsEnd.com, or other online retailers.

All students are required to wear the correct uniform with the logo showing at all times. If they arrive on campus without the proper uniform, the student will be sent to the office and their parent/guardian will receive a call to bring the appropriate uniform or take the student home. Please pay attention to the required skirt length for girls and female teachers. Proper school uniforms will be worn to all field trips or the student will miss the field trip.

Please note: If after school sports are available and your student is participating, athletic gear such as shin guards, knee pads, etc., will be required. These items are necessary for safe play and effective skill building. There will be adequate notice to purchase those items before the start of the season. Many of these items can be purchased second hand.

Unlike many private schools, both students and staff of CE@WA are expected to be in proper uniform at all times while on campus and when on school outings and field trips.
