WELCOME ARTS WEEK!!!

IT'S ARTS WEEK!

The gym has been transformed into an exhibition of student art from K-8. And later this week we will get to hear Music from the Masters at the annual Spring Concert!


It's a very exciting time for us @ MJS! Studies are showing that about 45-50% of adults have taken arts classes (visual & performing, etc.) in their lives. We are doing our part here at Mayfield to increase that % every day. Of course, we also know that arts education enhances the social emotional learning of each child (see this report).


Let's enjoy this celebration of arts at Mayfield, and remember that (roughly) only 22% of US adults attend visual arts festivals, and only 16% attend a free musical performance (p.25, NEA, 2015). Let's do our part to increase the community experience of Arts Festival attendance! :)

What's Happening:

THANKS to everyone getting Cycle B & C Summaries in last week! :)

Week of May 16th
