Spirit Wear Days

Spirit Wear days, generally celebrated on the first Wednesday of each month, are meant to be a day when the students may dress down and wear jeans and tennis shoes along with their spirit wear shirt, or if preferred, with their collared uniform shirt.  All Spirit Wear days will be listed in Our Lady’s Word, and are optional.  If a student does not choose to dress in Spirit Wear on these days, he/she should come to school in the regular school uniform.
