Our Common Bond Dedication Ceremony: August 27, 2018
Thanks to our community’s generous support during the campaign’s first three years, coupled with a well-timed construction schedule, the new Our Common Bond facilities will be dedicated on the afternoon before the first day of school. Save the date and plan to celebrate the opening of the Jack Olson ’67 Commons, Palermo Hall, the performing arts center, and related spaces.

USM Upper School
We invite you to tour the new spaces and learn how they will enhance USM’s curricular programming for students and faculty. Enjoy visiting with other families over refreshments to be served in the new Palermo Hall. In addition, we will unveil the Our Common Bond donor wall, which will recognize families that have committed $25,000 or more to the campaign as of June 30, with future leadership commitments to be added at a later date.
The school’s five-year Our Common Bond campaign continues to make great progress, with 83 percent of the overall $27 million comprehensive campaign goal committed. As we approach the $15 million goal for capital projects, the school’s endowment and USM Fund remain priority initiatives for the remaining two years of the campaign.
Other opportunities to visit the new spaces include the Parents’ Association Back-to-School Coffee on Opening Day and the Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School Back-to-School nights during the first few weeks of school.
More details will be available in the coming weeks. We look forward to welcoming you to this celebration!
