From the Principal’s Desk


It’s back!  We’re getting ready to kick-off our 3rd annual, “Where in the World is Mayfield Woods Middle School?” summer photo contest!  This contest is open to next year’s students, including our new rising 6th graders (Sorry 8th graders - we’ll miss you!). Did I mention that all students who enter the contest get to come to an ice cream party in the fall?!   Click here for a flyer and more information – we hope you’ll join us in the fun!  #MayfieldWorld2018

Our first annual 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony will be held on Thursday morning, June 7, at Long Reach High School. Click here and visit often for updates about this exciting event!

Happy Memorial Day and have a wonderful weekend.
