    Pre-Kindergarten Program

    PRE-KINDERGARTEN

    It is the goal of our Pre-Kindergarten Program to foster the necessary growth and development that will enable a child to deal competently with his or her environment and future learning experiences. As a program we recognize that this is a reciprocal process involving both home and school. Families are viewed as an integral part of the education process and are invited to be involved in all aspects of their child's educational planning.

    Children in the Pre-Kindergarten Program are seen as young children first and children with special needs second. As much as possible, teaching occurs in the context of play situations and learning centres. We also recognize the need for developmentally appropriate learning and when necessary, individual instruction. Mayfield's Pre-Kindergarten Program provides a wide range of experiences that capitalize on a child's strengths.

    Library Program

    We have a wonderful library at Mayfield School! Our amazing Librarian, Mrs.Eyo is continually updating our book inventory and inviting new guests and bookfairs to visit our library as well!

    This year was started off with 'Reading Week' in which special visitors from Edmonton came to read to our students! We were honored with a visit from the superintendant and some of the players from our Edmonton Eskimos! Zach Kline who's our quarterback, and Kwabena Asare who's one of our offensive lineman!

    We had a Scholastic Book Fair for a week in the fall - the students loved to visit the book fair and we received a TON of free books with our credits from all of the purchases made! Mrs. Eyo has added all the new books to the library for students to enjoy! She is also planning to invite Scholastic Book Fair back in the Spring time! Make sure to check 'Schoolzone' regularly for a notice of when the next book fair will occur.

    This year our Aboriginal section has grown immensely! Mrs.Eyo was so excited to order books for all ages - board books for our Early Education students! And books of all levels and interests for our Elementary students to learn about Aboriginal culture and history! Please feel free to pop in to the library to see all of the new interesting reads!

    Did you know you are welcome to come into the library and sign a book out for your child? Please feel free to visit during school hours!

     

    Did you know we have a program called 'WEE READS' at Mayfield School? This program involves volunteers from within the community coming to Mayfield and reading books with students! It is an amazing way for us to stay connected with the community, and for the community to stay connected with our students! Wee Reads is a program designed to create a 'love for books' and encourage children to enjoy reading and imagination. Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers and to all of the lovely community members who have made monetary donations to provide books for the 'Wee Reads' program! You are AWESOME!!!

  • Lunch & Nutrition

    Lunch & Nutrition

     

    Mayfield is an NSTEP school (Nutrition, Students, Teachers Exercising with Parents).  The goal of NSTEP is to prevent childhood obesity through educating and motivating people to eat better, walk more, and live longer.

     

     

     

    Breakfast:

    They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and here at Mayfield we tend to agree.  A healthy breakfast ideally would include protein and be low in sugars.  We find that children that have a healthy breakfast are more likely to be ready and available for learning, this is why we offer a daily breakfast snack to all of our students, while it is not a substitute for a full nutritious breakfast we hope that it will begin to provide a good start to a great day for each student.

    Lunch:

    At Mayfield school we offer a lunch program for those students that are not able to go home for lunch.  Lunch supervisors have been hired to provide supervision for this service and will do so in the children's' classrooms.

    Lunchroom fees cover the costs of supervisors’ salaries, extra cleaning and administration costs. Lunchroom fees do not include the provision of food.  Lunch fees are due at the beginning of the month, or at the beginning of the school year and can be paid at the school office. If a student who regularly stays for lunch will be eating somewhere else or a certain day, it is important to let the office know

    Here at Mayfield we encourage all students to bring a healthy lunch that contains four food groups and is low in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats as recommended by Alberta Health Services, for example fruit and yogurt would make an excellent snack while fruit juices tend to be higher in sugars and may not be a healthy choice.  If you have questions about nutrition guidelines for your child please check out healthyalberta.com

    Unfortunately we do not have a microwave available for student use, please ensure your child's lunch does not need to be heated to be enjoyed.

    FRUIT FOR A FRIEND

    We have been so lucky to be teamed up with Westminster school for our fruit for the friend program in the past and we are continuing the program again this year! We have had a flood of fruit donations coming in each week from the children and staff at Westminster School. These donations go towards our Breakfast snack program at Mayfield.  Every morning our breakfast team puts together trays of fruits/vegetables accompanied by another food from one of the other food groups.  This breakfast program with the help and generosity of Westminster School keeps our children's tummies full so their brains can work away!!

  • Parking at Mayfield

    Parking at Mayfield

    With a neighboring elementary school, a daycare and our busy site - parking can be a challenge. We ask that any parents or visitors to the school park in the visitor parking section behind the school (stalls # 1-8 against the fence), or on the street in front of the school.  Parking stalls to the side, back, and in front of the school are staff parking only and the open area next to the garbage and recycling bins are for school bus parking only.

    Bicycle parking; With our recent 'new' playground, we currently do not have a designated bike rack. Students are invited to lock their bicycles to the chainlink fence off the tarmac.

    Thank you!

  • School Philosophy

    School Philosophy

     

    Mayfield School is a caring, inclusive school that strives for excellence in its aim to serve the intellectual, social, emotional and physical aspects of each individual while fostering self-esteem, dignity and uniqueness. There is a fundamental belief that individuals have different strengths as learners and staff endeavors to meet these needs on an individual basis. Citizenship is promoted through the nurturing of a strong sense of community with a supportive and collaborative relationship between students, staff and parents.

    Mayfield School is a "Safe and Caring School."

    The Goal of a Safe and Caring School

    Members of a safe and caring school model socially responsible and respectful behaviours so that learning and teaching can take place in a safe and caring environment.

    What is a Safe and Caring School?

    A safe and caring school is a place where staff, students and parents create a shared vision based on collective safe and caring values. It is a place where everyone treats others fairly, with respect and kindness, and acts in a socially responsible way. The members support and care for one another so that everyone can succeed both in school and in life. Adults learn how to be effective role models, and children and youth learn to appreciate one another's differences. Everyone has a role to play in creating a safe and caring environment.

    The Society for Safe and Caring Schools and Communities aims to teach students respect and build a sense of responsibility to the community. The programs affect a child's total environment by assisting adults both in and outside of the school to model pro-social behaviours and skills including: bullying and violence prevention, anger management, conflict resolution, and respect for diversity. Programming is based on these fundamental concepts:

    • non-violent values and behaviours must be taught and reinforced consistently by the important adults in a child's life,
    • integrating safe and caring principles into the school curriculum and reinforcing them in the school, the home and the community teaches children to apply these values to all aspects of their lives,
    • children and youth who feel safe and cared for are predisposed to learning,
    • children and youth need to take responsibility for regulating their own behaviour,
    • adults influence children's behaviour through modeling, and
    • children and youth are the responsibility of all adults within the community.

    Expectations for a Safe and Caring School at Mayfield

    • Respect Ourselves
    • Respect Others
    • Respect Property

  • Volunteering

    Volunteering

    A sign of a successful school is the involvement of its students, parents, staff, and community in routine and special activities.  If you wish to discuss volunteer opportunities please contact the school office or your child's classroom teacher.  For safety reasons we ask that all volunteers sign in at the front office.  You may also consider volunteering for our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC); this committee provides support and input for the school as well as coordinates some of the fundraising and special events around the school throughout the year.  If you wish to volunteer for the PAC please consider attending one of their meetings.

Principal's Message

Happy New Year Mayfield!

 

We have had an amazing start to 2017 at Mayfield School! Our classes in Elementary and Early Education have grown in size, and our students have done a lot of growing themselves.

Some of our most memorable moments of the past few months are:

Terry Fox Run – our students and families raised over $3000 for this charity!

Early Education Parent Conference – We hosted our 2nd Annual Roots and Branches ‘Parent Conference’ complete with guest speakers and swag bags! Over 100+ families in attendance came to learn strategies and resources to support their children in Early Education.

Milk Monday/Hot Lunch – This year we started ‘Milk Monday’s’ and monthly ‘Hot Lunch’ days decided by, and promoted by our students. Requests for both have been highly successful and the proceeds fundraised through our monthly events will help provide our Elementary Program with a ‘Fun Day’ year-end field trip, and will help provide our Grade 6 Graduates with a Special Celebration.

Mayfield School is a bustling place!  We have been very lucky to have many volunteers grace our hallways and classrooms. Thank you to all of our ‘PAC’, ‘Study Buddies’, ‘Wee-Read Volunteers’, ‘Parent Volunteers’, and our practicum students for all of your help in supporting our student’s growth and enriching their learning environment.

In the months to come we have many learning adventures planned, both in and out of the classroom. We look forward to meeting new milestones with our students, watching them learn and grow, and to continue to become strong, independent student citizens!

It is very important that we acknowledge the valuable contribution of our Parent Advisory Council (PAC). Mayfield elementary students benefit by having no costs for their fieldtrips (including swimming lessons for Div 1 and ski/snowboard lessons for Div II.)

 We are SO grateful for our supportive PAC!
