Parents Board

Message from the Parents Board President

Dear Parents & Guardians,

On behalf of the Mayfield Parents Board, welcome to the 2022-23 school year! It is a blessing to have our entire Mayfield Community back together in our newly restored and reinforced Strub Hall, and we are pleased to welcome all our new and returning families.

The Mayfield Senior School Parents Board is a volunteer association of which all current parents and guardians of students attending Mayfield Senior School are members. Our purpose is to:
  • Support the spiritual, educational, social, and financial programs of the school
  • Support the Board of Trustees, the administration and faculty in their efforts to promote the mission of the School and the Holy Child Networks of Schools
  • Raise funds to support the school through sponsoring events, programs, and projects
  • Promote parental involvement at the school
  • Build relationships among students, parents, administration, faculty and staff at the school to promote cooperation between parents and the school and to serve as a source of communication between parents and the school
We invite you to join our meetings held every first Thursday of the month, at 8:15 a.m., in the Conference Room of Strub Hall. Additionally, the Parents Board sponsors a variety of special events and programs throughout the year.

There are many opportunities to volunteer and get involved, so don’t be shy! I look forward to meeting you.
