High School Dress Code -
To Be Discussed at June 10th Board Meeting
To improve our High School dress code, we are proposing a change to a simplified uniform. The uniform will feature a blue, collared sport dress shirt, along with khaki dress pants. Skirts will be an option for girls. We are doing this to foster a better sense of community, increase school spirit , and teach professional expectations to focus more on academics. Statistics nationwide have demonstrated that schools that adopt uniforms have measurable decreases in discipline issues and increases in attendance and academic success. We feel this will be a positive change and experience for parents, teachers, and students.

The Westminster 7:10 Rotary Club has generously donated free refurbished computers for Kindergarten through High School Students. Many students received a home computer to assist with school work and to assist parents with improving the ability to view student progress online and communicate electronically with teachers and staff. This program is part of The Pinnacle's effort to meet the goal of success being the only option. The Pinnacle would like to thank those at the Westminster 7:10 Rotary Club for their generosity and for making a difference in the lives of our students.
