GREAT HEARTS IRVING UPPER SCHOOL

HOMECOMING 2021

MONDAY, OCTOBER 25TH

Dress like your teacher day!

Students should dress like one of our teacher, from head-to-toe! In addition to mimicking your teacher’s style, you must also abide by the faculty dress code! For ladies, this means blouses that cover the shoulder, slacks, or skirts/dresses that are no shorter than 2 inches above the knee. For gentlemen, this means a button up shirt and slacks with tie/bowtie/jacket optional. If dressing like a PE teacher, you must work out with our PE teachers during lunch, as sweat is part of the uniform.

Western Wear Buck-a-Jeans Day Hosted by House Pericles

For $2 (donated straight to student events), students may wear jeans, boots, and their favorite pearl snap (or other appropriate western gear) to school. Only jeans or corduroys are allowed. No leggings, jean shorts, jean skirts, jeans with tears or holes in them, or jeans that are too tight-fitting. We will also have classic country western music playing outside at lunch, so students can two step after they eat! Buck-a-Jean tickets will be available at the front desk ahead of time and on the day of the event. We can only accept cash!

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27TH

Historical and Literary Character Dress Day

Dress as your favorite classic historical or literary character for the day. Teachers and admin will vote on best dressed and winners will be announced at the end of the day. All outfits must be school appropriate and are limited to characters from classic works. If you are looking for ideas, take a look at our Classics to Keep lists!
