Romans 12:1-2 states, "I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship. Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect." In following the message of scripture, we aspire to honor God in everything we do, including our modest and dignified dress code at all school functions. The following requirements are the guidelines to ensure that every student dresses in a way to show the true beauty of the person.
Any student that is violating the policy will not be allowed into the event until his/her attire meets the proper requirements.
If a male has a question about appropriate attire, they must seek input and advice from Mr. Banich. If a female has a question about a dress, they must talk with either Mrs. Bohn or Mrs. Armbruster before purchasing their attire.

The A Promise to Keep chastity program is completing its 25th year in the archdiocese. In order to measure effectiveness, we will be inviting the juniors and seniors who have volunteered as peer mentors to participate in a voluntary and confidential survey. Marian University is serving as the research organization for the archdiocese on this evaluation.
Parents: If your son or daughter has served in the A Promise to Keep (APTK) chastity program this school year, they will be invited to participate in a confidential and voluntary survey administered through Marian University.
APTK is a peer mentoring program designed to promote the health and spiritual benefits of chastity and faithfulness in marriage. The APTK lessons are character formation and skills development sessions designed for students in the 6th through 8th grades. These lessons are taught by older high school students, who are good role models and who younger adolescents can look up to and emulate. It is the voluntary leadership of these high school students that is key and unique to the success of APTK.
A link to the survey will be sent to this year’s peer mentors via email. Participation in the survey is voluntary and confidential. If you do not want your son/daughter to participate in the survey, please tell them to disregard the email invitation. If you have questions, please email Margaret Hendricks in the Office of Catholic Schools.
