2/28 Great Hearts Academies Career Fair Open House
Headmasters and the Talent Team are well underway with our most important annual search… for intellectually, morally, and aesthetically lively individuals to join the faculty at our academies. Our recruiting efforts are strengthened by the “word-of-mouth” promotion of Great Hearts teaching opportunities to the broader local community through our own academy families.  For those of you who have colleagues, friends, family, and/or neighbors whom you’d love to encourage work for Great Hearts, would you please pass along this link with information about the Great Hearts AZ Career Fair Open House on Thursday, February 28th.  We’ve also attached a flyer for your convenience.

Athletic Practice and Outdoor Field Day Dress Code – please click HERE  for frequently asked questions and examples of acceptable field day clothing

Just 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.) Shorts 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. No long baggy shorts may be worn. If desired length of shorts is not reached, leggings are allowed to be worn under the shorts.

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
