Dear St. James Academy parents and students:
We look forward to celebrating the WPA (Women Pay All) Dance in a short few weeks! The dance will take place at St. James Academy on Saturday, February 2, 2019, from 8-11:00 p.m. in the school commons, and similar to last year, it will be a THEME Dance instead of a formal dance! We look forward to this evening being an opportunity for our students to build community and celebrate together in a way that respects everyone’s dignity. Below is some important information:
ALL COSTUMES AND ATTIRE WILL BE EXPECTED TO ADHERE TO THE POLICIES IN OUR STUDENT HANDBOOK, WHICH CAN BE FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF PAGE 49:
It is also expected that there be no visible undergarments and that if spandex or leggings are worn, that a tunic/long shirt/skirt/shorts be worn over the top to ensure that the rear end is covered. Please help your child and their friends make the best choices possible with regards to their attire and choices for after-dance activities. If you don’t feel comfortable with what they are wearing or what their plans are following the dance, listen to your gut and help them make a change! Young people want firm boundaries and adults who care enough to look out for them in these situations.
