Lost and Found: Could It Be Yours?

Please let your students know to go through the lost and found box for any missing items. 8V Advisory went through the box last week. Items were delivered to teachers when possible, but many unmarked items went unclaimed. Please make sure all student items - binders, composition books, journals, spirals, clothing, lunch bags, etc. - are clearly marked with your student's name.

Union Station Outreach

Every month, half of the 5th grade class (two advisories) gather to decorate 60 lunch bags, prepare sandwiches, and assemble sack lunches. The lunches are delivered to Union Station where they will be provided to Adult Center clients who work, and Family Center children and their parents. Union Station is delighted that lunches arrive towards the end of the month when their clients are in most need of additional support. Please view November's photos of 5G and 5MH below.

Rules of the Road at MJS

Mayfield's hardworking seventh graders are trying to keep morning carpool safe. They strongly encourage all those who transport students to MJS every morning to please be mindful of the rules of carpool. Please review the Carpool Guidelines in order to help our seventh graders in their daily efforts. Thanks!

Joyful Sister Genevieve!

Sister Genevieve Ibedu, our visiting Holy Child nun from Africa, shared some wonderful stories with fifth grade about Holy Child College in Lagos, Nigeria where she works. We experienced her joy with students and their "mischievous" ways through pictures. We cannot thank Sister Genevieve enough for taking time to bring a ray of sunshine to us!

5th Grade Helpful Big Boys

A group of 5th grade students known as The Helpful Big Boys are kindness leaders, choosing first grade for their Great Kindness Project. Last week, they visited Mrs. Murphy's first grade class, reading a story to them about kindness, discussing the story with students. After sharing the traits of kindness from the book, these amazing 5th graders helped Mrs. Murphy's students make bookmarks. Ms. Reedy referred to these students as, "Kindness ninjas at work." Kindness is everywhere!
