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 closely followed construction schedule, the new Our Common Bond facilities will be dedicated on the afternoon before the first day of school. Please join us 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 who 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 85 percent of the overall $27 million comprehensive campaign goal committed. Thanks to the School’s strong culture of generosity, the capital projects’ $15 million milestone is achieved, with the campaign focusing on the endowment and the USM Fund, the other priority initiatives for the remaining two years of Our Common Bond.
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.
