Three students in uniform

Uniforms are required for grades PK-5. We expect our students to present a consistent and acceptable appearance in dress, attitude and performance each day.

The Bright School logo is required on several items. Only vendors approved by the school have permission to embroider or heat press the logo on clothing and other items. These vendors are Land’s End, School Uniforms by Tommy Hilfiger, ABC Apparel (formerly Educational Outfitters), Threads on Signal, and Charlotte's Web in Riverview. The logo is used in white on evergreen and navy, and the logo is used in navy on white, light yellow and light blue. The full-color logo is not used on uniform clothing.

The Parents’ Association oversees used uniform sales throughout the year, and these are good opportunities to stock your child’s closet.

Required Uniform Clothing

  • Grades PK-5 are required to wear specific uniform colors for performing at Thanksgiving and Grandparents’ and Special Persons’ Day. These are navy bottoms (pants, skirts, skorts or jumpers) and white polo shirts with short or long sleeves and the logo. Students do not wear shorts for these performances.
  • Fifth grade boys are required to wear khaki pants and white button-down long-sleeve shirts with a Bright plaid (Dress Gordon) tie or bowtie for graduation. Plaid ties or bowties may be purchased from Land’s End and Educational Outfitters.

Tip: White polo shirts are easily stained. Keep one in the closet just to wear for performances.


  • Label all clothing! Often items end up in the lost and found bin. The bin is cleared out several times a year and unclaimed items donated to the used uniform sale or charities.
  • Accidents happen! Younger children should keep an extra top and bottom at school just in case. Older children may change into clothes from the used uniform closet. We ask that parents either return these items clean or purchase them.

Free Dress Days, Pajama Day and T-Shirt Days

  • Several times a year, students have free dress days. This means they do not have to wear uniforms. Generally, they will still be required to wear tennis shoes and will have the same activities during the day as a normal school day. They should dress according to the weather and temperature.
  • In November, students have Pajama Day to celebrate the end of the Pajama Party Auction. We remind parents that students will still attend P.E., recess and other activities indoors and outdoors. They must wear tennis shoes. It is recommended that children wear pajamas instead of nightgowns, and athletic or lounging apparel also is acceptable instead of pajamas.
  • Each month, a Friday will be designated as Bright T-Shirt Day. This means students may wear any Bright t-shirt with regular uniform bottoms or non-uniform shorts/skorts purchased from the bookstore. These shirts could be any Bright shirt such as an athletic shirt from the bookstore,  Bright Fit, or Bright World.
  • For certain events such as Bright Fit and Bright World, there will be days when these shirts may be worn with uniform bottoms.
  • Students usually are allowed to wear holiday shirts and accessories with uniform bottoms for Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's Day.
  • Check the Woodshop weekly email and the weekly email from your child’s teacher for announcements about special dress days.
