Head's Weekly Message — May 26, 2023

Dear Mayfield Senior School Community,
It’s hard to believe that this is the last day of classes for this amazing school year. I am so proud of all that our community has accomplished this year–we have so much to celebrate!
The celebration of our arts program culminated last weekend with such wonderful performances and exhibits. I want to thank the entire arts faculty for their dedication to helping our students grow in creativity, skill and confidence. Congratulations to all our wonderful Mayfield artists!
Then on Wednesday our amazing year in athletics was celebrated at our final sports awards ceremony of 2022-2023. Our students really distinguished themselves through hard work and determination–truly inspirational!
Finally, yesterday evening, our school was recognized by the City of Pasadena with a prestigious Historic Preservation Award recognizing our Strub Hall renovation project. It was such an honor and so gratifying to know that through the very hard work of our wonderful team our beautiful home will continue to serve as such an important Pasadena landmark.
This coming week—three days of transition activities and graduation practice for our seniors and final exams for our freshmen, sophomores and juniors—will culminate with wonderful celebrations too. On Friday, we will honor our students for all their hard work at our Awards Assembly. Students should arrive on campus by 11:15 a.m. and head to the gym.  
After the assembly our celebration will continue with the 2023 yearbook video, dedication and distribution. We will conclude with a celebratory lunch for everyone topped off with delicious Handel’s ice cream. Students do not need to be in uniforms but should dress appropriately wearing a Mayfield shirt on top. I know it’s going to be a super fun day.
The celebrations will conclude with our Baccalaureate Mass on Saturday, June 3 and finally with our Class of 2023 Graduation Ceremony on Sunday, June 4. There are plenty of unreserved seats for both events—all are welcome!
Although we had our final Loaves and Fishes drop-off for the school year this morning, we are opening up opportunities for those in the Mayfield community to continue feeding those in need this summer. Click here for more details.
I hope you all have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!
With Love and Gratitude, 
Kate Morin
