Elementary Uniforms

It is our school policy that all children wear a CMCS school uniform when attending school. Our policy is designed with health and safety in mind. We believe that a school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school while creating a sense of belonging and community
  • identifies our students with CMCS (particularly on school field trips)
  • is practical, affordable and helps level the socioeconomic “playing field” while still allowing for self-expression

VERY IMPORTANT: Purchasing uniforms will never be a barrier to attending our school. If purchasing uniforms is creating a financial burden for you, please contact the CMCS office immediately at 843-235-0413.

SHOES

Any shoes may be worn as long as toes are not showing.  Please remember that students run around a lot during the day, so tennis shoes are the best option.

Tennis shoes must be worn for PE days

SOCKS AND LEGGINGS

  • Students may wear any ankle or knee high socks to school (no socks above the knee)
  • Students may wear solid black, navy blue, or white leggings or tights.

HATS

Hats may be worn outside as long as they do not contain inappropriate or offensive language or symbols.  No hats or hoods are permitted inside the building.

JEWELRY, MAKEUP, PIERCINGS

Jewelry, makeup, and piercings are strongly discouraged for our 1st through 6th graders, but we will leave this decision up to the parents.  If parents allow students to wear any of these, it is expected that they will not be excessive or disruptive to the school environment.  Small earrings are permitted.


Students may wear jeans (with no holes) and the CMCS silk screen logo tie-dye shirt on Fridays.  If a student prefers not to wear the tie-dye shirt, s/he should wear a regular uniform shirt (or can participate in “Free Dress Day” if it’s being offered).  Tie-dye shirts with the silk screen CMCS logo are available for purchase at the CMCS office. Youth and Adult sizes: Short Sleeve: $15, Long Sleeve: $17
