Our uniform policy changed July 1, 2018. This information has been updated in the Student Handbook.
Elementary Uniform: Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students are considered “Elementary Students.” Starting the 2018/19 academic year, we transitioned to purchasing uniforms on-line. The AAEM School Board has approved the following: Light blue shirts may be worn and purchased until they are unavailable. The approved polo shirt colors are navy blue, light blue, and purple. The light blue will be phased out (not sold on-line) as the purple is the replacement color. The approved polo shirts are those available in the front office and online at www.shopaaem.com. The entire uniform dress code can be found in the Student Handbook.
Middle School Uniform Update: 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students are considered “Middle School Students.” The colors for polos remain the same: black and gray. Approved polo shirts are available online at www.shopaaem.com. Polos may be available in the front office to purchase if they are in-stock from last year. All uniforms will only be available online once the office back stock is depleted.
All Students: With the uniform changes comes exciting new options. These are options, not mandatory. Students may wear the appropriate grade-level polo shirts and uniform bottoms Monday through Friday. If students choose, they may
- Wear any of the 6 Character Counts t-shirts every Wednesday with appropriate jean;
- Wear any of the approved Spirit Shirts on every Friday with uniform bottoms;
- Wear any of the approved Spirit Shirts on selected field trips with uniform bottoms.
Approved Spirit Shirts: Any AAEM style t-shirts or Character Counts t-shirts sold at the www.shopaaem.com site, any past approved AAEM spirit shirts (ones you might have purchased last year), future spirit shirts that will be approved or added to the www.shopaaem.com site.
Sweatshirts: All students may wear any of the approved AAEM sweatshirts (pull-over or zippered) in classrooms at any time. All students must wear an approved polo shirt under the sweatshirt. Only school sweatshirts (those available online at www.shopaaem.com) or solid colored sweatshirts may be worn inside buildings or classrooms. Sweatshirts must be worn right-side-out and have no other logs or graphics. Sweatshirts are only available online.
*Please see the AAEM Student Handbook for additional dress code policies.
We strongly suggest ordering uniforms online as soon as possible. The turnaround time is approximately 7 working days at the start of the school year due to the volume of orders.
