All Upper School students are invited to show off their Mustang Pride by participating in five days of festivities!

General Guidelines
Please dress reasonably & in good taste! We’re having fun, AND we’re still focused on learning in the classroom!

  • Follow normal uniform guidelines for jewelry, hair, and makeup.
  • No pen, ink, or drawings on the skin.
  • No pop culture, logos, or politics.
  • No hats or sunglasses.
  • Clothes should be in good repair with no holes in them.
  • Clothing should fit so that it is not form-fitting, oversized, or baggy.
  • Pants should be worn at the waist and should be no shorter than mid-thigh


Homecoming and Spirit Shirt Day

Wear spirit shirts or homecoming shirts with CRAZY SOCKS. Shirts must be tucked into uniform pants or skirts and uniform shoes must be worn. 


Two-Steppin’ Tuesday & Buck-a-Jeans Day

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!


Blackout Day

Show your spirit for our Volleyball girls by wearing a suitable all-black, logo-free top tucked into uniform pants or skirts, socks, and shoes. Volleyball players are invited to wear their jerseys tucked into uniform pants or skirts and uniform shoes. Go Lady Mustangs!

Homecoming Volleyball Games:

Come cheer on our Lady Mustangs in your all-black tops for a loud, fierce Black Out Student Section!

Middle School Select plays at 5 pm

Historical and Literary Character 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!

PowderBUFF Boys’ Volleyball Tournament from 4-6 pm in the Gym


Dress like a 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.
