Each year the HYP hosts a welcome dessert for incoming families. This year’s welcome dessert will be August 9th in the Bloomington High School South cafeteria at 6pm. All HYP families are invited. Mr. Hansen and many HYP booster chairs will be present to give information and answer questions about the program and the coming year. Families will have the opportunity to sign up for fundraising events, and students who have not yet been measured for outfits will have the opportunity to do so at the event. Returning HYP families are asked to bring a dessert to share.
As we come to the end of the school year we would like to send a few reminders regarding outfit returns. As stated in the HYP Handbook all outfits, (jackets, pants, shirts, blouses and skirts) need to be dry cleaned at the end of each year.
We will be collecting outfits after the May concert. You may turn in your outfit dirty with $10 (cash or check made out to HYP) and we will provide the dry cleaning, or you may turn in your outfit dry cleaned, with the receipt attached.
All outfits, including those of returning students, need to be returned by the HYP Awards Banquet on May 31st. Below are the outfit collection days and times:
- Tuesday, May 16th before school at South from 7:30-8:00 am
- Tuesday, May 16th at South from 6:00-8:00 pm
- Wednesday, May 17th at North from 7:30-8:00am
- Wednesday, May 31st at the HYP banquet beginning at 5:00pm
All outfit pieces, including cummerbunds, bow ties, and studs, need to be turned in; this includes any borrowed pieces as well. We will check that the outfit is complete when returned and parents will be billed at that time for any missing pieces. The invoice will reflect the prices outlined in the HYP directory. Please plan accordingly and have checkbooks available.
South students will wear black and white attire for the graduation performance, therefore all outfits should be returned by the banquet. Any outfits not turned in by May 31st will have to be returned dry cleaned with a receipt. Due to time constraints we will not be able to offer the bulk dry cleaning discount after May 31st.
Any student that needs outfit repairs or size adjustments should check in with us at the final concert on May 10th. We will be on hand to take measurements and make note of any needed repairs or alterations. All adjustments will be completed over the summer in order to help alleviate some of the workload at the start of the school year.
Thank you in advance for helping to make this a smooth process. If you have any questions regarding outfit returns please contact one of us.
