My daughter started kindergarten this year. The school that she attends requires students to wear uniforms. I love the idea of school uniforms. As a grade-schooler, when I moved from Connecticut to Arizona, I endured quite a bit of bullying, because I didn’t wear the name brands that all of the other students were wearing. It was very hard on me.
I am glad that things will be different for my daughter. It warms my heart to know that she won’t be judged by the clothes that she wears. With uniforms, focus shifts to who she is a person, not on the brand name of her jeans.
French Toast Official School Wear is America’s best selling brand of school uniforms, providing quality official school wear to our nation’s schools for the past 10 years. French Toast School Uniforms offers thousands of different items in sizes 4 to young men’s and juniors. French Toast is also available in thousands of stores nationwide.
French Toast provides style, quality and value, just what you are looking for. The average expenditure for a complete French Toast uniform (pant/jumper, shirt/blouse, sweater, tie) is $45.00. Most children will require two sets of them. That’s $90.00 total, period, for the year.
Not only are they cost effective, but studies show that school uniforms raise both student and teacher expectations.
When dressed neatly and seriously, students tend to behave seriously. Often teachers find calmer, more polite, more attentive students. Students seem to feel more confident in the way they look, and so they have more confidence in themselves.
This Christmas we have one French Toast school uniform wardrobe to give away to one lucky reader.
For a boy, you will receive 6 tops, 4 pants and 1 sweater. For a girl, you will receive 6 tops, 2 pants, 1 skort, 1 short and 1 sweater.
