School Happenings at MJS

Here at Mayfield Junior School, we had a lot of joy in our hearts this past week, celebrating Founders Day. What a joy it was to see our fifth graders begin Mass in celebration and music, as well as act out the Gospel of Mark. We were blessed to have Sister France celebrate her Jubilee with us, her 50th anniversary as a Holy Child nun. We were also gifted by the words of Sister Genevieve, sharing with us the power of service to others, living the ideals of Cornelia Connelly. October is full of joy and wonder!

Sports Spirit Day: Friday, October 23

This Friday, October 23, students may wear any sports colors or any sport uniform. We encourage students to bring any gently used sports equipment to MJS School Families on Friday, October 23. MJS will deliver the equipment to Our Lady of Guadalupe School, who are in need of sports equipment for their school. Many thanks for your support!
