• Family Notes




Hello Southeast Elementary Families!

 What an incredible year it’s been! As we wrap up the year and reflect on all we’ve accomplished, I want to say a huge thank you to all of you. Thanks to you we have hit so many milestones this year and SPARKS have made so much growth toward their goals.

Huge shoutout to our Fifth graders as they continue their journey on the middle school! You will always be our “founders” and we couldn’t be prouder of you all! Thank you, families, for your donations and support for the fifth-grade field day. The Houston weather really was challenging, but we still got to celebrate our 5th grade SPARKS.

Please take a second to review our End of Year family notes for important updates. As you read through the updates for next year, I’m sure you will have many questions. Please know that we will get to your questions as soon as we can and there will be more information to come.

Class Dojo will continue to work over the summer so be on the lookout for updates there and don’t hesitate to reach out to our front office or myself if you have any needs.

Again, thank you for an incredible year and have an amazing summer!


Matt McMahan

Principal YES Prep Southeast Elementary

School Year 2024-2025 Dress Code

YES Prep Public Schools believes in the power of community and school pride while also deeply valuing a student’s right to express their individuality without the fear of unnecessary discipline, body shaming, or the confines of gender norms. Students have the right to be treated equitably and dress code enforcement at YES Prep Public Schools will not create disparities, reinforce, or increase the marginalization of any group, nor will it be unfairly enforced more strictly against a student because of racial identity, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, cultural or religious identity, household income, body size or type, or body maturity.  

For the 2024-2025 school year, students are required to wear a YES Prep-branded uniform top five days a week, the last day of the week allows for a variation (i.e. – college t-shirt day). Students will be allowed to wear a uniform top from any previous school year (that fits uniform policy). 

Additional Guidance: 

  • All YES Prep students should own at least 1 campus polo. 
  • Uniforms from the 2023-2024 school year and previous years are acceptable if they meet the school’s uniform guidelines.  

Uniform Sale Price 










Uniform bundle: 3 spirit shirts, 2 polos 



The YES Prep polos and spirit shirts are available for purchase online.  All information pertaining to student uniforms, the links to campus webstores, and distribution guidance can be found on the YES Prep Student Dress Code website.
