$20,000 Target grant won for purchase of playground equipment
January 11, 2016
was informed on Friday, January 8,
that Target has awarded
the school district
a $20,000 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service grant
for new playground equipment!
This is a grant that the district applied for this past fall.
The district was selected from the many other submissions that were made by stores and distribution centers throughout our region.
Criteria for the grant included hands-on projects, youth centered activities, and/or community volunteer project(s).
Mayfield's application was for the purchase of playground equipment and features a community install where school/community members and Target employees volunteer to assemble and raise the playground.
We will hold a kickoff event during the week of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and are forming a steering committee. Target not only funds the grant, but Target employees will volunteer their time and talents to assist our school as we plan, purchase, and install the equipment…hence the title the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.

Congratulations to Mayfield Elementary School for winning a $4,000 Dollar General grant for the Leveled Literacy Project
September 11, 2015
Mayfield Elementary School has received a $4,000 Youth Literacy Grant from Dollar General. The school will create "The Leveled Literacy Project" to establish a leveled literacy library for the school's youngest learners - kindergarten to grade 2. The literacy library will serve as an instructional resource that will move students toward reading success.
A leveled literacy library is a collection of books categorized by levels so that every child has data determined books that are at their independent "just right" reading level to practice fluency and to develop a love for reading. This project will also ensure that every teacher has books to use with children at their data determined instructional reading level to ensure maximum growth in literacy skills, as taught through guided reading.Read more here
