Homecoming & Reunions

Class Reunions have been postponed to Fall 2021

The Mayfield administration made this decision out of an abundance of caution and care. In light of the COVID-19 situation and social distancing measures, we want as many of our alumnae as possible to be able to celebrate with their Mayfield sisters in a joyful atmosphere.  

If you have already registered, we are more than happy to refund your ticket or honor it for the Fall 2021 date. Or, you may choose to offer your ticket purchase as a donation to the Holy Child Financial Aid Fund. We will honor your request, in whichever way works best for you.

And, because we missed our 2020 festivities, we've decided to double down on the reunion celebrations this year! We encourage all decade reunion classes ending in "0 and "1" (10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th reunions) to start rallying your classmates to reconnect in the fall for some Mayfield memories and merriment! 

Please feel free to email Nicole Cosand with your decision, or with any questions or concerns. We continue to pray for all the communities that are being affected by COVID-19.

This one is going to be hard to top! We are still beaming from the love and sisterhood and all-around good vibes that...

Class Reunion Gifts

Traditionally, reunion classes give a gift to Mayfield Senior School as a class. Many reunion classes have raised enough money from their class gift to make a significant donation to the Holy Child Financial Assistance Fund. Classmates who cannot attend the reunion may still wish to make a tax-deductible donation towards the class fund. All class gifts received by June 30 will be recognized as a gift from the "Class of X."
