Mayfield Junior School – Benefit 101
We hope you’ll join us this year!!
The Mayfield Junior School community is strong and special because of the relationships we build with each other and our commitment to our children and our School. The annual Benefit is one of the many ways we demonstrate this commitment. It’s a time to gather with friends and celebrate our fellowship. The party is always a great time with dinner and dancing; with themed food and drinks. This year we’ll even have a live band! Additionally, the Benefit serves as a major fundraising event for Mayfield. Through patron support, ticket sales, and the highly anticipated silent and live auctions, our community comes together to generously support MJS. The impact on our School is significant and together we help to invest funds in the School’s Endowment.
For our newer community members, here is some information about the Benefit. We hope you’ll join us for this fun evening!
What is the Benefit?
I. A great community party that also serves as a significant fundraising event for the Mayfield Endowment.
II. This year’s event, “Studio MJS” will be held May 7, 2016, festivities to begin at 5:30PM.
What is the Endowment?
I. The Endowment is Mayfield Junior School’s investment or savings account, which provides funds to support people and programs on campus each year, through the annual budget. Tuition, support of the Annual Fund and Endowment income come together to provide all that MJS offers. Next year the endowment will provide roughly $500,000 to our operating budget. A strong endowment ensures the ongoing financial health of our school, supports all of the great programs including financial aid and teacher professional development, and at the same time offsets the pressure on tuition. A strong endowment is important for so many reasons, but most importantly, it supports our students and the future of our great School.
How can I support the Benefit?
I. Attend – We hope you’ll make plans to attend the event!
II. Be a Patron – Help underwrite the event by purchasing a patron level.
III. Buy a Family Page – Purchase a half or full size family page in the Benefit Tribute Book. There is a sample book in the front office or online at www.mayfieldjs.org/studiomjs. It’s a wonderful keepsake.
IV. Donate to the Auction – Participate in the silent or the live auction by donating an item. There will be auction collection dates to make donations easy. A representative from each grade who will let you know what types of donations they will be looking for.
V. Encourage your child to participate in the Teacher Raffle – Each student will be given the opportunity to purchase a raffle ticket for only $5 and select which teacher outing they would like to try to win. Is it Headmaster for a Day, lunch with their homeroom teacher or a special outing? A drawing for the winners will take place in April.
VI. Volunteer – There are many opportunities to volunteer for the Benefit, from helping with mailings, to decorations and set up on the day of the event. This is a great way to get to know more parents. To join the fun, email Denise Modrzejewski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do I need to know about attending the benefit?
I. Invitations will be mailed in late March. Tickets are $200 per person.
II. The attire is disco, Studio MJS! Costumes are encouraged!
III. You will be seated with families from your grade level or according to your seating requests on your RSVP card (we’ll do our best to seat you as requestd).

Together we must do The Hustle for 5 minutes...we aim for 650 total students, faculty, staff, parents and friends to set this record.
We loved our students who helped spread the word about how to do the Hustle, if you're looking for a few more pointers you can find a many instructional videos on YouTube.
The dance steps are easy and once we're all in a big group we have confidence everyone will be able to put the moves together!
