School uniforms are designed to take the pressure off competition and economic status for students. Uniforms encourage a neat, consistent appearance and assist students as they concentrate on their studies. The uniform code is strictly enforced by the school faculty and administration. All uniforms should be clean, pressed and free of holes. Shoes and socks must be worn at all times.
1. All Grade levels:
a. All students shall wear a DMA uniform (or after-school activity specific dress) from the moment they step onto campus until when they depart.
b. All students will wear a DMA Royal Blue collared shirt with the logo on the left breast.
This shirt shall be ordered from Propst and Sons. Click here to order uniforms.
c. Before November 1st and on or after April 1st, boys shall wear non-pleated khaki shorts with a brown belt and white crew socks. Younger boys who may have trouble with a belt are excused from this requirement. During these times, girls shall wear Khaki skirts (with black bike shorts) with white crew socks.
d. Between November 1st and March 31st, boys shall wear non-pleated light khaki pants with a brown belt to complement their shoes. Girls shall wear black leggings with calf-length black socks such that no skin is showing. All skirt hems must fall at or below the knee.
e. A white undershirt is recommended for use under the uniform shirt.
f. A grey fleece jacket with the DMA logo may be worn during cooler weather. The Fleece shall not be wrapped around the waist, but rather hung on the back of a chair.
Click below to purchase a grey fleece jacket. Once you have the jacket in hand, bring it to Propst and Sons to have them embroider it with the DMA logo.
New this year is a blue, long sleeve cardigan, which will need to be embroidered at Propst and Sons and shall be kept at the school in case children forget their fleece jackets.
g. Hair should be clean and not be a cause of distraction and prevent learning. It should be pulled out of the face. All accessories, including girls’ hair bands/ties and barrettes, should be conservative and complement the uniform (Royal Blue or White).
h. No make-up or face glitter is to be worn by students at any time. No fingernail polish or lip gloss will be allowed. A basic chapstick is permitted for personal use only.
i. Shoes will be BROWN Suede Bucks dress shoes.
They must look like these:
For children who need some extra time to work on their shoe lace tying skills, there is this shoe option as well.
The administration reserves the right to determine the definition of appropriate school dress. Parents may be called to bring a change of clothes for students who are inappropriately dressed. The children generally go outside, even when the weather is
cold. During these times, it is necessary for them to have hats, gloves, scarves, etc.
Occasionally DMA allows students to have “Dress Down Days” where they may dress out of uniform. Children may wear jeans, khakis or other clean, casual type slacks with appropriate tops. T-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. may be worn, but they must be appropriate to the Catholic environment of DMA. It is permissible for girls to wear a casual skirt on “out of uniform” days, as long as the skirt follows the guidelines for uniform skirts and the hem touches the top of the knee or longer.
