“As a kid, I went to both a Catholic elementary school and a Catholic high school. In elementary school, they had uniforms when I was in junior and senior kindergarten. When I was in the first grade they stopped it. However, since the uniform was mandatory for students attending a Catholic high school, I had to go with my parents to purchase the appropriate uniform.
That was quite a long time ago. I vaguely remember the cost being around almost $300 for a few shirts, a couple of pairs of pants, a sweater, a vest, and a kilt. That didn’t include the cost of dress shoes. My first pair, which lasted a couple of years, was about $100. The pairs of pants were way too long for my vertically challenged self. Thankfully, my mom was able to hem my pants, so that didn’t cost anything.”Image Courtesy of stockimages/FreeDigitalPhotos.Net
