Chalk Talk: Dressing for Success
Many students seem to think that any school that does not require students to wear uniforms has a “free for all” dress code. This is simply not true, and it is important to learn the lesson that first, and second, impressions matter. Every school has strict guidelines about what students can and cannot wear. It is important that students follow the guidelines. It is important not just because it keeps students out of trouble, but also because it helps students get accustomed to thinking about how they dress, and to thinking about what the clothes they wear say about them. When students go out to work in the real world they will be expected to follow strict work and office dress codes. If they get used to following dress codes now, it will be much easier for them to follow dress codes when they really count.
