For nearly 40 years multiple generations of Mayfield families have gathered together to celebrate Grandparents and Special Friends Day. First held on January 6, 1982, grandparents spent the morning exploring the campus in the company of their grandchildren and then enjoyed a festive lunch. Today this beloved tradition is held in February with a special Mass and reception with family and friends. Amid balloons, doughnuts and laughter, under sunny or stormy skies, hands are held, artwork is admired, teachers are introduced and photos capture the wonderful glow of family.
Grandparents are welcome and encouraged to volunteer on campus throughout the year – especially when it comes to Hot Lunch. Volunteers are needed to assist with serving hot lunch to students. Hot Lunch volunteers sign in at the front office by 11:40am and are brought to the serving area. Lunch is finished no later than 1:00 pm. All volunteers are provided with a lunch.
Grandparents play a vital role in our community as loving supporters of our students and their education. Each year grandparents contribute nearly $100,000 to the Mayfield Annual Fund, supporting the programs and experiences that make a Mayfield education special.
Located in Pasadena, California, Mayfield Junior School of the Holy Child Jesus is a K-8 Catholic coeducational private school. Our kindergarten, elementary school, and middle school experience best prepares students for high school education and beyond.
