On Monday, October 17, 2016, Palmer Trinity upper school students organized a “peaceful protest for body positive uniform policies for all students.” This all began due to the stricter uniform policies that have been implemented this year. Palmer has usually been known to have a very lenient dress code, and students throughout school were expressing their discontent with the stricter policies by turning their polos backward. The amount of students participating eventually caught the attention of the administration.
After the peaceful protest concluded, Mrs. Bodie and Mr. Chapman agreed to hold a meeting to discuss dress code rules directly with students.. In the meeting, students were able to voice their concerns and opinions. This protest was spontaneous but it was successful and showed how students can come together to make their voices heard.
