A buffet dinner will be served at 7p with music and dancing to follow. Admission to the dance is $5.00. We ask that students sign up with Mrs. Limon prior to May 1, so we can have an accurate head count for meal planning.
The theme for this year is "Graffiti Bash" and the attire will be dressy casual. Shorts or pants are acceptable. Please be aware that all School rules are in effect during a social, as stated on page 20 of the Severn School Handbook. This includes dress code rules that involve short skirts, short shorts, cropped tops, tank tops, low-cut, strapless, or spaghetti strap shirts or dresses. As with all Middle School social events, dating is not allowed.
