Friday is a FIELD DAY for NPX!
September 29, 2017 (Half Day)
This year, all field days will be a mixture of athletic, artistic, and academic competitions. Middle school Gladiator Familiae will compete with each other, high school will mix into teams and compete against one another.
Students may either wear their full uniform, bring athletic shoes, or wear athletic attire per the NPX Family Handbook, page 52.
Athletic Practice and Outdoor Field Day Dress CodeJust as the Academy provides guidelines for dress code in the classroom, it is important to project the image of professionalism in our athletic attire as well.
All shirts worn for athletic practices and field day should be modest, loose fitting, in good repair (no holes, torn sleeves, etc), should be worn either tucked in or well over the waist of the pants/shorts if not tucked in. No midriffs may be shown. T-shirts are preferred—no tank tops, camisoles, or sports bras may be worn as outer- garments. Sleeveless shirts may be worn if modest.
Pants/shorts should be modest, in good repair (no holes, torn sleeves, etc.) Pants should be worn at the waist and should be no shorter than mid-thigh, and no-longer than just below the knee. No short-shorts or long baggy shorts may be worn. No boxers or undergarments may be visible. No yoga pants worn as outer wear.
Attire should be free of inappropriate messages; sports team logos (e.g., Diamondbacks, Notre Dame), and apparel brand names (e.g., Adidas, Abercrombie) are acceptable, provided they do not make inappropriate allusions. These guidelines also apply to sweatshirts and jackets that students may wear. Footwear should be athletic in nature: no sandals, open-toed, or platform shoes. Hats and sunscreen may be appropriate, if the students will be in the sun. Hat styles should follow the same guidelines as above.
