Off to a Great Start at MJS!

Hello Fifth Grade Families! Thank you so much for being a part of an amazing first month at school. We truly appreciate your support and look forward to an awesome year with fifth grade. We enjoyed seeing you last week at Back to School Night; Mass of the Holy Spirit; and Opening Mass. Coming together as family and as a Mayfield community is what makes our school special.

Student Planners: A Daily Student Tool

Planners were distributed a few weeks ago to students. Please talk with your student about using their planner on a daily basis. Students are expected to carry their planner to all their classes, making it easier to jot down all classroom information. The planner is the primary organizational tool for students. Schoology is a supplemental organizational tool to the planner in fifth grade. Students have completed their training on Schoology.

Fifth Grade: Stewards of the Community

During Afternoon Advisory, students are exploring and discussing the topics of hunger and homelessness. Students were thoughtful in their questions, their thoughts, and their ideas on what their role is on addressing these issues in our local community. As we prepare for a visit from Union Station representatives, we read children's books, we worked in groups, and we took notes we will share with Union Station. We are very proud of our fifth grade students as they become stewards of the community.
