Cal's Crew Cut-A-Thon

This past Saturday, a fundraiser was organized by local Mayfield Families to support one of our 8th-grade students battling brain cancer. Hairstylists from around the area gathered in the Middle School gym where they cut hair for donations. 100% of the proceeds went directly to Cal's family to help support their needs during this difficult time. As one parent stated, this was "a beautiful display of love in our district and community." Thank you to everyone who attended this event and to everyone who continues to pray for and support Cal.

Class Topic: Wellness Inquiry, Practices, and Research

In this course, students will seek to investigate the question: How can we create a positive impact on community and personal wellness? Students will be provided opportunities to engage in hands-on wellness activities (fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, health), interviews with professionals in related fields, and investigative research. Topics explored include physical, mental, social, environmental, financial, and occupational wellness. Students will collaborate in groups to choose one particular issue or topic from a survey of issues and apply problem-based learning processes to investigate, research, and analyze the issue selected to formulate solutions that will work towards the progress of this goal. This investigation will involve continued opportunities with organizations throughout the community. The course will conclude with the opportunity to present findings or create opportunities for our Mayfield community.

Class Topic: Exploring Business

This project-based learning (PBL) course in business is designed to provide Mayfield High School students with a comprehensive and engaging introduction to the world of business. Students will work in teams to complete a series of challenging projects that apply business concepts and theories to real-world scenarios. Throughout the course, students will develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills while also gaining a deeper understanding of topics such as marketing, finance, and operations. The course may also include guest speakers from the business community, as well as opportunities for students to network and make industry connections. By the end of the course, students will have a portfolio of work that showcases their understanding and skills in business, preparing them for future academic and career pursuits.

Class Topic: Using Your Voice For Change

Course Description: In this class, students will investigate issues in our community (MHS, Mayfield Community, Cuyahoga County, and Northeast Ohio), as we imagine new possibilities for engaging with stakeholders using purposeful language. Students will learn about their voice and have opportunities to share it with others about the pressing issues of our day. We will explore ways others have advocated for change through an investigation of a variety of media including articles, speeches, plays, poetry, and art. As they participate in a sustained inquiry on matters about which they are passionate, students will research and design effective ways to advocate for change. At the conclusion of the course, groups will create a presentation that will present their findings and analysis to spread awareness to our Mayfield community.

Class Topic: Global Citizenship through Service Learning

Course Description: Students will employ service learning to explore the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development, discovering how these goals apply to issues throughout our world, particularly in our local communities. Explorations will occur through experiential learning in the form of service opportunities during which students will actively engage in working towards these global goals while forming personal connections with community members affected by these issues. Case studies will also be used in combination with personal and group reflection to empower students to see how they can actively participate in ways to better our world. Students will apply problem-based learning processes to investigate, research, and analyze a particular issue or topic pertaining to these global goals. This investigation will also involve focused service opportunities. At the conclusion of the course, students will design a presentation that will share their findings with our Mayfield community and advocate for their targeted global goal.
