Uniforms

YO Students and Parents, Please review the information below VERY CAREFULLY - it contains important information regarding uniforms, luminarias, and a request for parking volunteers.

Uniforms - Action Required

ALL students in AYSP Youth Ensembles (YS, YO, YCO, YC, YGO) must wear an AYSP uniform for concerts. Please review the requirements below for boys vs. girls and be prepared with your selection at rehearsal on September 14.

Girls Dress Requirement: Girls are required to purchase a uniform dress through AYSP for $65.00. Once a dress has been purchased, it may be worn for multiple years. If your student outgrows the dress during her time in AYSP, you may purchase a new one at the beginning of the season. However, she MUST let the parent manager know at rehearsal that she needs a new dress and request a fitting.

Fitting: Girls who do not own a uniform dress from last season (or any girl requesting a new uniform dress) will be fit at rehearsal by September 14th. If you will miss rehearsal on September 14 (and did not complete your fitting on September 7), please contact Katherine Myers to schedule a time for a fitting before September 14. We recommend ordering on the larger side to ensure that the dress fits the following year.

Payment: Payment in the amount of $65 is due by Monday, October 5. Payments may be dropped off at rehearsal by cash or check (be sure to label with your name and "uniform") or made online through this link at any time - http://www.aysmusic.org/uniforms. For families who received tuition assistance this season, payments are due by Monday, November 10. If you need assistance or additional time to may your payment, please contact Katherine Myers at Katherine@aysmusic.org.

Boys Jacket Options: Boys must own a black suit jacket. They have the option of ordering a jacket through AYSP or purchasing a jacket on their own. Jackets purchased through AYSP are $65.00.

Fitting: All boys will be asked at rehearsal if they would like to purchase their jacket through AYSP or not. Boys will be fit for a jacket by Monday, September 14. If you want to purchase a jacket but will miss rehearsal on September 14 (and did not complete your fitting on September 7), please contact Katherine Myers to schedule a time for a fitting before September 14.

Luminaria Bags - Due Monday, September 28

Folded luminaria bags are to be turned in by Monday, September 28th. Students should turn in two bundles with each bundle containing 20 dozen (total 40 dozen). Please make sure that the student's name, ensemble, and number of dozen in the bundle are written on the outside of the bag. Any remaining folded bags can be turned in separately. Bags may also be turned in any time prior to September 28th - just drop them off at the AYSP facility to the right of the side entry door. Information on the tour location and date is forthcoming. Luminaria sales kits will be provided in early October so that students can begin fundraising for the tour.

Parking Volunteers

To keep our students safe, volunteers are needed to help with parking at the end of each rehearsal. If you can volunteer between 9:00-9:30pm, please see Katherine Myers or email Katherine@aysmusic.org. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the above, please let us know.
