- The children in Pre-School, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten are to wear comfortable and school appropriate play clothes. They do not have a specific dress code.
- All Early Childhood Students, however, are welcome every Friday to celebrate their Falcon Pride by wearing St. Francis Xavier t-shirts or by dressing in the school colors of Blue and Gold! Extra Small & Small St. Francis Xavier t-shirts can be purchased by contacting the school office at 708-352-2175 or by email.
The weather often unpredictable, it may be a challenge to dress children for the outdoors. Just a reminder: Barring rain, thunder or large puddles we hope to take full-day students out to recess each day. As the occasional “blustery day” comes along, please remember to dress children accordingly.
