New School Pledge

MJS students have been introduced to the new School Pledge, during Morning Prayer and Friday Families. Please take a few minutes to read the School Pledge with your student:


As a Mayfield Student, I accept responsibility for my actions and words. I honor God's creation and pledge to treat others with kindness, compassion, and respect.

Conferences

Fall Conferences will be held October 21 and 22. Please refer to this flyer on conferences for more information. On both days there will be no school, but care will be available through Extended Programs. Contact Jason Wolfe for Extended Programs information.


Hopefully you have been able to schedule conferences online. Here are some helpful tips to make your conferences efficient and productive:


  • Check all subject area grades on Schoology before your meeting. This will help you to see which teachers you really need to conference with and what you want to discuss. If you feel like you do not need to meet with a specific teacher at this time, please cancel your appointment online so that meeting time will become available to others.


  • Talk to your child about their strengths, weaknesses, and goals for each class, as well as for the year.

6th Grade Retreat...Friday October 16th

On October 16th the 6th graders will meet at Mater Dolorosa in Sierra Madre at 8:30am, for their class retreat. Parents may just drop off at 8:30 however they are also invited to stay for Mass if they would like which will begin at 9:00 am. Students will only need to bring a snack, as lunch will be provided for them. Following Mass the students will spend the day at the retreat center going through a series of activities and reflections revolving around the theme "service to others" and "Community." Pick up from the retreat center is at 2:00pm. For those of you with students playing in the 6th grade Girls Volleyball or Boys Football tournament the PE department have arranged for carpools.

Our Lady of Guadalupe...by Rebecca Leiva

On Friday October 9th 4 of our student visited our Reach Out school, Our Lady of Guadalupe. This is one students take on the experience.

"I was nervous when I arrived at the front office and got ready to hand out the bags. My Mom had also bought some apple and tangerines. As a group we decided that Maria and I would greet them and ask their bag numbers. Each student had a bag number that we would find for them and put a bag of food and some fruit in. Each student received two tangerines and an apple as well as a bag of other foods (previously bagged by 6th graders). Some kids had stars next to their name which meant they had brothers or sister to also feed. We gave them 2 bags of food and an extra apple and tangerine. Overall it was a great experience and I enjoyed helping the students."
