School uniform top: Solid, light blue (powder blue) shirt or blouse w/collar 
A Mark Twain sweatshirt or a solid, navy blue sweater or sweatshirt may be worn over the light blue shirt under the following conditions:
the light blue collar is appropriately visible
No logos, words, pictures, stripes, or decorations
may not be worn inside out and must be size appropriate

Additionally, a solid, navy blue or light blue shirt may be worn under the short sleeve uniform shirt for warmth or comfort.  Undershirts that are not uniform blue must be tucked in.

School uniform bottom:  Solid, navy blue pants, shorts, skirts or jumpers
no jeans, denim, baggy styles, nylon or tear away pants 
No stripes, decorations, logos or tears/rips on clothing 
all bottoms must be length and size appropriate for school

The school uniform must be worn to school each day except gym day as explained below.  Laundering issues are not an excuse to be out of uniform.  In the event of an unavoidable incident, the child should be sent to school with a note explaining why he/she is out of uniform.  We do have some 
uniforms that may be borrowed for the day.  Donations of gently used, out- grown uniforms are always appreciated.

Gym uniform top: Mark Twain royal blue t-shirt /sweatshirt, or solid, royal blue t-shirt or sweatshirt without pictures or letters

Gym uniform bottom: Mark Twain royal blue shorts/sweatpants or solid, royal shorts/sweatpants without pictures or letters. 
Solid navy blue shorts/sweatpants without pictures or letters

For safety reasons students are not allowed to participate in gym activities wearing jewelry.  Gym uniform may only be worn on student’s gym day.

Please note:  Boys may not wear earrings and no student may wear jewelry 
in pierced body parts.  Hats, bandanas, make-up, distracting hairstyles, midriffs, and excessive or distracting neckwear/rings (chains/medallions, etc.)
are not permitted.
