Summer Notes  

Happy Spring!

With a few weeks left of school, we are excited to continue learning and working hard until the end of June. Due to the warm weather, many students test the limits of appropriate dress by coming to school with short shorts, crop tops, and flip flops or slides. We understand they are eager to go out and enjoy the sun, but we emphasize that they be safe and appropriately dressed. Here is a reminder of our dress code.


Bowditch Dress Code (from Handbook)

Shirts =­ Navy blue collar polo shirt (long sleeved or short sleeved).

Pants= ­ Shorts and skirts may be worn. They should be no shorter than knee length. Pants, skirts and shorts must be free of writing, stripes and designs and be a SOLID color.

Shoes ­= Students should wear closed toe shoes or sneakers (no flip­flops or sandals).

We would also like to warn parents regarding ticks. We have had quite a few cases and we want to make sure parents are aware and regularly checking their children for any. Our scholars' safety and wellness are priorities for us!
