2019-20 Elementary School Supply Lists and Dress Codes

Following is a list of supplies that your child will need to begin our school year. Please make sure they have all of these with them for the first day of school. Some supplies may need to be replenished during the school year. Please make sure to check with your child periodically to see if they are short on any of the items.

* New for this year* The PTO will be purchasing Bibles for each of the classrooms. You have the option of purchasing one of these at a reduced price or borrowing it for the year. If you purchase it your child will be able to highlight, make notes, etc. and have it throughout elementary. If you prefer to borrow one they may not mark in them and will borrow a different one the following year. Please let your child’s teacher know at open house which you prefer.

Standard Dress Code

The dress code applies at school and activities where the student is under school supervision.  Students should show good judgment in choosing items of dress and hairstyles that do not call undue attention to the individual.   Pikes Peak Christian School students should be clean, neat, well groomed, and not disheveled.  Any violation of the dress code is subject to disciplinary action and a request that the student change into more acceptable clothing.  Students may be asked to leave class until their parent/guardian brings appropriate clothing. In situations where differences of opinion arise, the decision of the administration will be final.

  • Shoes or sandals must be worn at all times.  For safety reasons, closed-toed shoes must be worn in P.E., in science labs, and outside the building.  Athletic shoes are worn in the gymnasium.
  • Any garment or jewelry bearing a message or design that is inconsistent with the PPCS mission and philosophy will not be permitted.  This would include, but not be limited to:  advertisements, symbols, words, slogans or pictures that are sexually suggestive, obscene, profane, offensive, or libelous; that denigrate others on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, gender, or disability; that promote violence; or are drug, alcohol, tobacco, witchcraft/occult, or gang related. 
  • Undergarments must be worn and not be visible through outer garments or exposed.
  • Brief and revealing clothing are not appropriate apparel in school.  The following guidelines on brief clothing are examples and do not cover all situations.  Students shall not wear tank tops, halter tops, garments with spaghetti straps, backless clothing, tube tops, garments made of fishnet, mesh or similar material, muscle tops, pajama-style clothing, or strapless garments.   Garments that are see through, cut low, or expose one’s midriff or lower back while standing or sitting are not acceptable.  Sleeveless garments must fit closely under the arms.  In all cases modesty will be the determining factor in acceptability.
  • Gym wear is only permitted in the gym. 
  • Tight shorts or short shorts are not allowed during school hours or during school activities.
  • Clothes may not be extreme in style or length, must not have immodest holes, and must fit appropriately – no excessive sagging, bagging, or extreme tightness is permitted. 
  • The wearing of clothing with design or placement of lettering that calls undue attention to certain body parts is not allowed.
  • Hats, bandanas, sweatbands or sunglasses may not be worn indoors, except for medical purposes. 
  • Jewelry worn in pierced body parts will not be allowed except in girls’ ears. 
  • Hair must be of a natural color, be neat and clean, and not call undue attention to the individual. 
  • Any visible tattoos are to be minimal, are not to call undue attention to the individual, and cannot be of a message or design that is inconsistent with the PPCS mission and philosophy.
  • Girls only:  Skirts, or slits in skirts, shorts or dresses, (even when worn with leggings) cannot be more than 4 inches from the top of the kneecap. Leggings must be worn with a dress or top that comes to no more than 4 inches above the top of the knee.  Modesty will be the determining guideline.
  • Boys only:  Hair length shall be above the eyes in the front and no longer than the base of the neck in the back.  Hair shall not be braided or in a ponytail. Exceptions in regard to hair, based on culture or ethnicity, will be determined by the administration.

Social Events Dress Code: The dress expectation is semi-formal:

  • Boys: Dress pants, collared shirts
  • Girls: Dresses.  All dresses must be preapproved for dress code via the PPCS Dress Committee.

The standard PPCS Dress Code is in effect with the following exceptions:

  • Girls are allowed to wear a dress with spaghetti straps as well as a modest halter-top dress. The back of all dresses should at least come to the shoulder blades (close to just under the underarms, limited modest openings are allowed below that point.)
