Day of US: 11/21
United Spectrum, Severn's version of a Gay-Straight Alliance, is a new organization in the Upper School this year.
United Spectrum will be having its opening event, called Day of US, on Thursday, November 21. The organization has invited guest speaker Kathryn Hamm
, a graduate of an independent school in Dallas who earned her AB from Princeton University and her MSW from Catholic University. Ms. Hamm played varsity soccer at Princeton, has been an educator, coach and administrator in independent schools in the D.C. area, and currently is the president of GayWeddings.com, the leading online boutique and resource dedicated to serving same-sex couples.
Ms Hamm will share her story and experiences with US students and faculty. The Day of US celebration will continue during both lunch periods and at the end of the school day when supportive students can add their handprints to an "I SUPPORT..." banner which will be displayed in the school.

|2013-2014 Community Directory & Online Handbook|
This year's Severn School Community Directory will be distributed to all students on the first day of school (2 per household). Be sure to check your student's backpack/trunk/athletic bag for yours!
This year's Community Directory is a bit different. It still contains a photo for each and every student, faculty, staff, and trustee member, as well as family addresses, class lists, and some general school information. The detailed policy and procedural information for each division (Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School) have moved to the Parent Portal
Please take time to either familiarize or reacquaint yourself and your child(ren) with the rules and expectations detailed in the Handbooks. It is important that Severn School and its parent body work together as partners and are clear about the School's purposes and practices. This partnership will offer your children the support, clarity, and consistency needed to have them develop the skills, habits, and attitudes to meet life successfully.
|New Faculty and Staff|
It is with great pleasure that we introduce the newest members of the Severn team and know you'll join all of us here at School welcoming them into the fold.
