Moran Dress Code

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Today was one of the first truly warm days we have had this year, and thus, we had many students sent to the office for dress code. We are working building-wide to ensure consistency in our monitoring of dress code, and greatly appreciate your attention to this at home. As is mentioned in the reminders we have sent home about dress code, there is a lot of research to suggest that students who adhere to a dress code feel better about themselves and do better in school. Though our full dress code is attached, sticking points are listed below for reference:
For boys-
• School-appropriate logos only
• Hats must come off at the door
• Sleeveless jerseys are OK, tank jerseys are not
• Shirts should not excessively reveal chest, belly, back
• Shorts must be pulled all the way up
• Shorts/pants should be free from excessive rips

For girls-
• School-appropriate logos only
• Sleeveless is OK, tank tops are not
• Shirts should not excessively reveal chest, belly, back
• Shorts/skirts must be fingertip length all the way around
• Shorts/pants should be free from excessive rips
• Yoga pants should be covered with a shirt/skirt/shorts that are finger-tip length all the way around

Dress Code

Again, we appreciate your willingness to help us bring out the very best in your student.

With thanks,
Moran Administration

Each and every player reached base and scored led by our 4 8th graders:

Emily Musso doubled and scored twice

Christiana Amorone was outstanding at second base even throwing out a very fast Dag player from her knees.

Glory Villano reached all four times with 2 singles and a double.

Pitcher Riley Wolcheski, threw a “NO – HITTER” and only allowed 1 walk.

Trailing 1-0 and 2-1 going into the fourth, and with 2 outs, Caitlyn Hunt singled, Alex Tenero doubled, Christiana Amarone and Aleiya Noone singled and the big blow another single by Emily Musso capped a 4 run inning. Glory Villano was outstanding defensively at first and Riley Wolcheski struck out 10.
