Dress Code
The Mark Morris High School dress code is designed to maintain an ACADEMIC focus in the classroom and on campus.  Students should dress appropriately for educational activities so as not to endanger their or others’ health, safety or welfare, or cause a disruption to the educational process.  The administration and staff appreciate the cooperation of students and parents in reviewing the student’s dress to meet the established guidelines.  If, in the judgment of school officials, dress or appearance is unsafe or distracting, the student will be required to change into appropriate attire.  The following rules shall apply to both genders:

1. No revealing clothing will be allowed.  This includes spaghetti straps, backless, strapless or halter-tops, low-cut tops, see-through clothing or revealing shorts.  All shorts and skirts must be 2 inches below your fingertips with arms straight down at the sides (this includes while walking).

Mark Morris Booster Club is getting up and running again

Please help support our "Clothes for the Cause" fundraiser.

What a great way to make some money without having to buy anything!  All you have to do is tell your friends and family to do some spring cleaning and clean out your closets!  See more....

Mark Morris Booster Club is getting up and running again and would like your support!  Please check out our Booster Club page for updated info on what's going on.  We also have a Facebook page, look for Mark Morris Booster Club and click like. 

Our meetings are the 2nd Monday of the month at 6:30 in the LGIC room off the cafeteria.  The meetings are usually 30 minutes to an hour depending on what's being discussed.  We are looking for people to help with committees and bring some great ideas to the table. 

We are in the process of putting together a fundraiser for different clubs/sports called "Clothes for the Cause."   The more weight we collect the more money per pound!  The Band did it last year and made $2700.00 with over 10,000 pounds!

We are in need of storage for the 4 weeks leading up to our April 17th deadline.  If you know of a place that we could use for free, let us know! 

Booster Club is also in need of a smaller size freezer for our concession stand at the stadium.   If you have one or know someone that's looking to get rid of one and would like to help us out, that would be great!

Thank you in advance for your support!
