Perfection and success are arriving at Samueli Academy. As WASC came to our school, the staff and board made some big impacting decisions. Next school year, 2018-19, Samueli Academy will be enforcing a new uniform.
“Uniforms would keep students mind on a successful future and not have to worry about fashion,” said Mr. Saba, the principal of Samueli Academy.
A Uniform’s Purpose
The purpose of the uniform is to create success, look scholarly, and show unison as a school. “A uniform establishes a working mindset,” said Mr. Palacios, a teacher at Samueli Academy. About 75% of the staff members believe uniforms would be the best choice for students. The uniform would follow a modest dress code. “There would be no problems with over showing tops or saggy pants.” The school uniform tops include long and short sleeve. The bottoms would include knee-length shorts/skirt and pants. The colors would show school spirits like gray, orange, and white.
Enforcing the Dress Code
The uniform dress code will be enforced by different people at a time. A student, teacher, staff member, or a parent can watch over the code. Consequences will include ISS, suspension, detention (which is also coming next year), or trash pick up around campus. Enforcement will be through by checking knee lengths, and shoulder lengths.
Student and Staff Opinions
The uniform move is a big decision for Samueli Academy. Different individuals have a variety of opinions on wearing uniforms. “We will all be the same. Our styles will all merge and be magnificent. It’s like art.” said Maritza Ibarra, a student at Samueli Academy. Other students think the opposite and believe it’s like a dystopian movie. “It reminds me of “The Giver”,” said Annie Change, a freshman at Samueli. However, as the new school year arrives, we will all learn to love our fabulous attire. This love comes from a voice in our new headgear we are receiving. As soon as we walk into school, a voice will appear on the device and remind us of success.
Wait! There’s more?
The further our high school career goes, the more changes we will have to endure. There are rumors of inserting chips to track us, taking cell phones away before school, and shaving our heads, but these aren’t true. None of this is true… or is it. I am kidding my peers. APRIL FOOLS!
