Blazers for High School and 2021-2022 Dress Code

Watch this Mount Paran Minute on the new high school chapel blazers for 2021-2022!

NEW! BLAZERS REQUIRED FOR HIGH SCHOOL CHAPEL

Beginning in 2021-2022, all high school students in grades 9-12 must wear the new school-approved black blazer on Tuesdays as part of chapel wear. This will apply to both male and female students. The blazers will be available for purchase through the Eagles Nest only (required for high school, but optional for younger grades). They are machine washable. For boys, the school seal adornment can include a pin-on option which is removable so that the blazer may be worn to other functions, such as a wedding. Only boys are required to wear the official MPCS chapel tie. Please refer to Mrs. Rusk's email to rising high school parents concerning the new chapel uniform requirement.

Pre-order the official MPCS blazer and chapel ties, only available in the Eagles Nest! The black official school blazer is available in youth, adult, and ladies' cut and is adorned with approved embroidered school seal patch. Blazers are machine-washable. The blazer is a REQUIRED item for 2021-2022 high school students and can be worn DAILY.  It is optional for grades TK-8. Be sure to check out the sizing samples in the Eagles Nest school store to try on before ordering. BLAZERS and ties MUST BE PURCHASED THROUGH THE EAGLES NEST using the online form below. No outside blazers will be permitted. We have decided to place a second order, with an extended deadline of May 24.

The official MPCS chapel neck tie required for boys only in grades 5-12 comes in several lengths and bow tie, in tie or pre-tied for chapel for grades 5-12. Click below to order.
