St. Thomas Aquinas School Uniform Policy and Guidelines
Why Do Our Students Wear Uniforms? Wearing uniforms in school creates the foundation for a cohesive community of learners. Students are provided the platform to view themselves and others by what is on the inside, rather than outward appearance. It removes distractions from the classroom, helps students focus in school, and provides an element of unity and school pride.
Who Wears the School Uniform? All students kindergarten through sixth grade are required to be in uniform each day that school is in session, unless it is a designated “out of uniform” day. Preschool students are encouraged to wear the school uniform; however, it is not required. Where Can I Purchase Uniform Items? Donald’s Uniform is our preferred vendor. They have two store locations in the Twin Cities, and clothing can be easily ordered online through their website: donaldsuniform.com. Simply search their school directory for “St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School”. Navy polos, white polos, navy pants/shorts, khaki pants/shorts, leggings, and socks can be purchased through other retailers. However, the shade must be consistent with the uniform pieces available through Donald’s. Our school also has a listing on Landsend.com and a local shopping option at The Hideaway.
