Class Notes and News

Mayfield’s Class Notes are a way to share what's going on in your life with your classmates and friends. MJS alumni from near and far share their travels, photographs, career changes, accomplishments and milestones on our new class notes online form.

Class notes are collected through several news forms. Most are submitted to us by alumni using the online Alumni Update Form. We learn of news from school newsletters, posts in media and articles and by word of mouth from class representatives, parents, teachers, staff or other alumni who are very connected with the school. Share Your News!

To submit your own Class Note, please email Submissions may be edited for style and length.
