APPEARANCE CODE

We believe that attention to dress and outward appearance serve as an example to our faith and Christian witness.  As a result of this belief, the appearance code at Palms will be strictly enforced.  These guidelines have been adopted to support comfort, modesty, appropriateness, and safety.  We expect parents to be in full support and cooperation with the dress/appearance code of our school.
