As of this school year, Woodrow Wilson Junior High has gotten a colored dress code. All 6th Graders must wear a grey collared shirt, 7th Graders must wear black collared shirts, and 8th Graders must wear purple collared shirts. The course of this adjustment is due to the addition of 6th grade to the junior high. They want to make sure all the students are better organized and where they’re supposed to be.

 

I retrieved an opinion from a 7th grade student who goes there and I asked her how she feels about having to wear a certain colored shirt. She stated, “I don’t like having to wear what they want.” She can’t show who she really is by wearing something she doesn’t prefer. The school should be better organized with another choice. I asked her if they are ever allowed to wear what they want at least every now and then.  She quotes, “If you have no tardies by the end of the 6 or 9 weeks, they may choose the outfit of their choice.” From her understanding some kids don’t really care about the dress code and others feel the same way as her. If she wanted to make this change she would start a petition or make flyers to show awareness of how troublesome the dress code is. When I had asked Principal Benard if they were going to release this new rule, she said, “I think we will keep it like this so it stays better organized and we will know grade from grade so not as much trouble is caused with everything.”
