Plaid skirts & polos

Saddle shoes have been replaced with bright-colored sneakers. And instead of bow ties, button down shirts and dress slacks, polo shirts and khaki shorts or slacks are now the standard.

But no matter how the styles change, school uniforms remain an important part of Catholic education and a trademark for it, too.

So say two Catholic educators from the Archdiocese of Omaha with more than 74 combined years of experience - Sofia Kock, principal of Holy Name School in Omaha, and Joyce Gubbels, principal of St. Pius X/St. Leo School in Omaha.
