All students in kindergarten through 8 grade are required to wear uniforms to school. Our students wear school uniforms in order to create an atmosphere appropriate for learning and to support St. John's School sense of community. A uniform appearance promotes a visible sense of school unity and identity. Uniforms help ensure that each of our student’s self-esteem comes from internal feelings of success and is not related to external accouterments
Our clothing regulations are a reflection of the high standards expected the Archdiocese of Denver as well as Fr. Ron, our pastor; Mrs. Kemmery Hill, our principal; our faculty, and our families.
In addition to our everyday uniform, a specific uniform is required for Mass day each Thursday, on picture days, and for field trips.
The following dress code is effective for all students from the opening day to the closing day of the school year:
- All clothing should be of appropriate size, clean, and in good repair.
