FEBRUARY MAKE-UP TAG DAY
This Friday, February 9th will be the make-up tag day for February 2nd.
Students are allowed to wear non-uniform clothing in place of their uniform for a fee of 50 cents or $5.00 for the entire year. All monies collected for Tag Day are donated to a charitable organization.
As a Catholic community, our attire should reflect modesty.
Examples of inappropriate clothing are, but are not limited to:
- Tops which are sleeveless, which do not cover the entire shoulder, or which have spaghetti straps
- Backless shirts/dresses that cover less than a uniform shirt
- Pajama tops or bottoms
- Leggings, jeggings, yoga pants
- Pants, shorts, and tops that are too tight; clothing should be loose fitting
- Skinny jeans
- Baggy styles are not permitted
- Shirts with a low scooped neckline
- Shirts not long enough to cover the waist and hips. When the shirt is tucked in and arms are raised above the head, the shirt should not come untucked.
- Shirts with inappropriate logos/pictures
- Skirts or shorts not knee length. *Knee length is defined by the hem of the skirt touching the CREASE AT THE BACK OF THE KNEE.
- Shoes with high heels, open backs or toes, sandals, Crocs
- Nail polish, makeup, or excessive jewelry
If students wear clothing deemed inappropriate, they will be told to call home for a change of clothing. Students having to change will lose their Tag Day privilege for the following month. A second TAG Day infraction will cause students to lose this privilege for the remainder of the year.

For Thanksgiving, the Troop cooked hot dinners and delivered the meals to the family. At Christmas, the Troop purchased gifts from the family's wish list. This past weekend, our Girl Scouts planned and ran an Introduction to Scouting campout at GS campground Sandy Ridge in Bennettsville, South Carolina. SCS scouts who were present were Cadettes: Jacqueline C., Katie M., Emma S., Maya L. and Brownie: Sophia H. Our scouts taught the family scout songs and outdoor skills. We are very proud of our activities and feel blessed to represent SCS in the community!
