January is Mosaic Month at MJS and we need you!

Requesting Parent Volunteers:

Mosaic Month is a beautiful celebration of the cultural diversity that exists in our community and we rely on our parent volunteers to help make it happen. The culminating event is the International Heritage Fair on Friday, January 29th. If you are interested in either creating a cultural table for the fair or in helping out behind the scenes, please contact Ms. Myvonwynn Hopton as soon as possible. Thank you!

Uniform Guidelines

Wintery weather has come to Pasadena, and a steady stream of rain and cold temperatures are in the forecast for the entire week. Students may wear winter and rain gear, in keeping with uniform guidelines. All coats, jackets, sweaters, umbrellas, and other school items should be clearly marked with your student's name. Please allow enough time for morning carpool arrival, and possible rainy day dismissal for afternoon carpool. Many thanks!

Grandparents and Special Friends Day is coming sooner than you think!

Please mark your calendars! It may seem early, but Mayfield’s annual Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ day is right around the corner. We look forward to welcoming the ones we love on February 12, 2016. This is a special tradition, a day when Grandparents or Special Family Friends join students on campus for Mass and classroom activities. To insure we get an invitation to your child's special guest, please fill out the form here if this is your first year at MJS (or there are changes to the addresses from last year's invitation mailing).

Thank you,

Nicole Dixon & Tina Yates
