Earlier this week current Severn eighth grade students met with Severns Upper School student council members, new prefects, and sophomore peer counselors to discuss their fears, schedules, and any other questions that they had. Mrs. Toni Michelson, an Upper School Counselor, says The purpose of the 8th Grade/Student Leader get together is to give the rising freshman the opportunity to meet with Upper School students in a relaxed and friendly setting.
