Midwest Dress Code

Midwest Parents and Performers,

We will be dressing in business professional attire for most of our trip to Chicago. Boys will need a sports coat, dress shirt, and slacks.  Girls will need a dress, nice blouse and slacks, or a pant suit for the trip. There is no need to go shopping for winter outerwear that may be worn only on this trip! Consider borrowing rather than buying. Overcoats are preferred, but ski jackets are acceptable although they don’t usually fit well over a sport coat. It is recommended that students bring a pair of gloves and an ear band, ski cap, or scarf. When indoors, gentlemen will remove hats and caps.

Business professional attire is required on both travel days, on Wednesday when we are at the McCormick Center in the morning, and at the Chicago Symphony on Thursday evening.  Casual clothing may be worn on Tuesday evening for Chicago Style pizza and Wednesday evening for the Hard Rock Cafe and Blue Man Group. Neck ties for boys and dresses for girls are required at the Chicago Symphony Thursday evening.

There are a lot of sales this Thanksgiving week and you might consider checking Thrift stores for great bargains.  We are going to look great and represent Berkner High School in the best possible manner.


Thank you all!


Mr. Needham and Mr. Schayot
