Uniform Update

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to update you regarding our search for a new uniform company and thank you for your input and patience. Your top two important qualifications according to your input via conversations and questions were cost and a storefront location. We are happy to announce that we found a company that will fill both those requests and more. They are in the process of purchasing a building in the Houston area and have the most competitive prices of companies we considered. At this point, we are not making any major changes to the uniforms colors or patterns, but are adding more styles. Below are the changes:

• Preschool – Add: navy blue skorts (for girls), light blue polo and red polo, criss-cross tie with mass uniform (for girls), Peter Pan shirts for girls will have school initials on collar. All else will stay the same.

• Elementary – Add: navy blue and plaid skorts(for girls), Preschool Bib jumper (no more v-jumper), light blue polo and red polo, criss-cross tie with mass uniform (for girls) Peter Pan shirts for girls will have school initials on collar. All else will stay the same.

• Middle School – Add: school tie with school initials (boys and girls), navy blue pleated skirt for girls for every day wear, plaid pleated skirt will remain Mass uniform, light blue polo and red polo. All else will remain the same.

We will provide a detailed flyer with more information. All current uniforms that are not on the flyer will be phased out after one year. We plan to “grandfather” in most of the current uniforms we have at this time, so you will not need to buy all new uniforms unless you would like to do so, except for the Mass uniform. We are looking forward to working with our new vendor, Risse Brothers and hope that you will be pleased as well. We will have more information as soon as all the details are worked out so that you can start purchasing items for the 2018 – 2019 school year. Again, thank you for your patience throughout the vetting process. As soon as we have samples to show everyone, I will let you know.

On another note, our spring festival is around the corner, April 22nd. Flyers will be going out soon to request donations from donors for the auction followed by the list of donations that we are requiring from students. As always, your help is needed to man the booths. Please look for the signup genius link to sign up to volunteer. This year, we will have live music and a DJ at the festival. This is our biggest fundraiser and we count on all of our families to sell their raffle tickets, get the word out, and participate on the April 22nd. Raffle tickets will be assigned on the Wednesday after Spring Break.
