General Announcements for the 4th grade

The 4th graders took a poll as to what they would like as their Halloween Dress-Up Theme. The winner is...dress up as a movie character. Being that there are 3 year olds in the school, the characters need to be appropriate so as not to frighten or cause issue to the younger students.

Winter Uniforms begin Monday, October 27. Dressing in the Waldron Mercy Academy uniform is an important part of the school day. Teachers will enforce the uniform policy. If it is necessary for a child to be out of uniform, a note should be sent to the the homeroom teacher. Boys' hair should be trimmed so as not to touch their collars. Girls' hair should be neatly groomed, also. Baseball or other hats, bandannas, and headbands decorated with big flowers, etc. may not be worn. Jewelry should be simple and not distracting. No body piercings are permitted, except pierced ears. Earrings should be no larger than 1 1/2 cm and without hoops. Cosmetics should be sheer or neutral. Clear, sheer nail polish or a French manicure may be worn. Extreme hair coloring and visible tattoos are not permitted. Students may only wear Spirtwear (no flannel pants) in place of their gym uniforms for physical education class.

Girls winter uniform - navy plaid kilt, white turtleneck, navy crew sweater or vest with embroidered Mercy Shield logo, standard shoe is the Eastland Plainview brown oxford.

Boys winter uniform - white dress shirt (with WMA school tie) or white turtleneck, khaki pants, navy V-neck sweater or vest with embroidered Mercy Shield logo, navy crew socks or white or black athletic socks (just showing or to the ankle), black belt, standard shoe is the Eastland Plainview brown oxford.
