At Annunciation we take great pride in our students and we want our students to take great pride in being a part of the Annunciation School community. As a way to build and support that pride we continue to uphold a uniform policy. Wearing a standard uniform helps to create a neat and consistent appearance for students and reminds them that they are a part of and a reflection of the larger Annunciation community.
Annunciation partners with Educational Outfitters, 952-927-6778, and Donald’s, 651-776-2723, for our uniforms. Please purchase all uniform supplies at these vendors. Uniforms purchased through these stores are made with fair trade/labor practices and have been designed to hold up for heavy wash and wear. Note: Check description of each item to see if it is uniform compliant or designated as spirit wear.
Used uniforms are available through the Annunciation Parent Organization (APO).
