Grandparents' Day 2016

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): https://docs.google.com/forms/d/12VIQdERng0cKT1-D7Szb_StAXMSSNGZDWVkdrehN_I4/viewform

Thank you,

Medical Information

It is still the time for colds, coughs, and the flu! Please remember to keep your child home if they exhibit any symptoms. Children MUST be fever-free for24 hours before returning to school. Thank you for your cooperation!

Safety First!

Please remember to email the teachers if your child is going home with a friend at the end of the day...especially if they are in another class. Having this information helps avoid chaos at the end of the day and is ultimately for your child's safety. Thank you!
