Christmas Concert

December 15, 6pm

St. Andrew Church

We hope that you will attend this special event so that we may celebrate the season together! This beautiful concert is a Mayfield tradition, and never fails to impress.

Only 8th grade students who are involved in Chamber Choir, Student Council, and/or Rock Band will be participating in the Christmas Concert. Rehearsals will be during the normal school day and regular after school meeting times, as to not interfere with preparation for final exams.

We are proud of our multi-talented students who are able to balance arts, athletics, and academics, and we look forward to an impressive display of their musicality at the Concert.

8th Grade Christmas Party!

Friday, December 18

Each student should bring a $10 unisex gift for a white elephant exchange (due Wednesday)
