Dress For Success days are coming back to Turtle Creek Elementary School this year. They’ll be the second Friday of every month:
September 13, October 8, November 8, December 13, January 10, February 28*, March 14, April 11, May 9 and June 6*. (*alternate days).
Associate Principal Ramon Reyes started the Dress For Success days. Here’s his story on why he started them:
Someone once asked me, “Why do you wear a tie every day?” To this I replied, “We dress up for important people and events. My students are important to me and that is why I wear a tie every day to work.”
Most recently, I have identified myself with the character in the book Mr. Tanen’s Ties by Maryann Cocca-Leffler. With that in mind, I encourage students to join me and on these dates wear their best outfit from their closet.
