GIRLS UNIFORM BLOUSE OPTIONS
2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR
The girls uniform guidelines for the 2018-19 school year will offer a new blouse for the PreK-5th grade as well as an option for the middle school. 
The new blouse for PreK- 5th grade is a white broadcloth blouse with a pointed collar and the  St. George emblem. While this is an option for 2018-19, beginning in the 2019-20 school year, all PreK-5th grade girls must wear the new blouse.
The middle school girls will have the option of the current white oxford cloth uniform blouse, with the button down collar and the St. George emblem on the pocket or the new option, which will be a white cotton polyester knit polo style (unbanded) shirt with the St. George emblem. 
Both new blouses must be purchased at any of the three Baton Rouge Uniform Stores.
GIRLS ON THE RUN  - We will be hosting Girls on the Run (GOTR) teams this spring.  GOTR is a wonderful program that empowers girls in 3rd through 5th grades while preparing them for a 5K run.  We are looking for coaches to lead the girls through this program.  It requires 10 weeks - 2 days a week of your time.  Anyone interested in coaching this inspiring program please contact Linda Dutreix, Linda.Dutreix@sgschoolbr.org, as soon as possible.
