Learning and building skills for 21st Century Jobs.  So much work lies ahead in the next several years.  After the devastating fires in our area and in other areas of California, more skilled workers will be needed for the next five, ten years or longer.  We already have a shortage of workers for taking care of our infrastructure of roads, buildings, water ways, and services.  

 

Common Core Standards and the ways we are changing our school and education, in general, are all about preparing our students for the years ahead.  

 

Yes, it is all about building skills.  We are all about getting our students ready for high school and beyond.  

 

BUT, STUDENTS!  You need to attend school every day.  You can not develop skills or learn information if you are not here.

 

Practice civil discourse and good listening skills in the classroom and outside.

 

Be here and build yourself.

We are gonna keep it simple so you can go shopping.  Stick to the new guidelines and you will be fine!

 

LCMS Dress Code for 2017~2018

 

Rule #1. DRESS: be RESPECTING, RESPONSIBLE, SAFE and READY FOR LEARNING with how you dress each day.  Carefully read the few new LCMS dress rules below and then choose wisely. 

1a. Shirts: must cover your shoulders, all the way down to your belt level. Cover all undergarments.

1b. Pants/Shorts: must cover skin and all undergarments from the waistline down to a length lower than finger tips when arms are extended down sides of body.

1c: Pajamas & Blankets & Slippers: belong at home.  Only O.K. to wear on special dress up days.

1d. Jackets/Sweaters: high school and college teams are O.K.  Especially wear our feeder school (Elsie Allen High School) or Lawrence Cook Middle School materials.  Have SPIRIT!

1e. Hoods/Hats/Beanies/Knit Caps/Gloves—

  • Please DO NOT wear: bandanas or skullcaps.

 

  • Hats may be worn outdoors on hot or cold days.  Please wear them properly—so we can see your face and the front of the hat.  Take them off when you step inside buildings or classrooms—this shows respect.
  • Lettering, designs, logos or graphics: high school, college teams…see Rule #2 below for more information.

1f. Footwear—for purpose of personal safety…everyone must wear shoes that cover and protect your feet.

1g. Hair—keep it clean and neatly groomed.  This is just plain good health practice. 

1h. Physical Education:

  • Students may only wear approved Lawrence Cook Middle School Physical Education Uniforms or other grey, green, or white shirts, shorts, and sweats (talk to P.E. coaches).
  • Students must wear athletic shoes

Exceptions to the dress code may be made for Student Spirit Days or other Dress-Up Days and for any item that is sold in the student store when and where appropriate (hats, knit caps, shirts, etc.). 

RULE #2: Rules of thumb about inappropriate and unacceptable clothing

Per California Educational code: Any article of clothing or accessory that illustrates, depicts, showcases, and /or promotes: alcohol, drugs, tobacco, sex or suggestion thereof, affiliation with inappropriate groups, gangs, prejudice and/or hatred toward any age, gender, ethnicity, race, religion, physical or mental disability, violence or reveals/suggests body or undergarments or presents a health/safety risk is considered inappropriate and unacceptable.  Students are NOT to wear such items to school.  Students will be directed to change the clothing and parents shall be contacted.  A student who continues to violate these standards shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.   NOTE: as styles continually change, the school reserves the right to add/delete items to the dress code and/or list of inappropriate and unacceptable without prior notice.
