Welcome to Mayfair Elementary School!

  • Dear Parent/ Guardians:

      On behalf of the Mayfair Elementary School staff, I am excited to welcome you and your family to the 2022-2023 school year!  My name is Shawna LeSure and I have served in the East Cleveland City School District for 23 years as a teacher, Curriculum Specialist, Preschool Administrator and Principal.    It is an honor to work with the students, staff and parents of the Mayfair Elementary School Family.  The Mayfair Elementary School staff is committed to developing a positive partnership with you to ensure that your child achieves at their highest potential.  This year our charge will be toTAP into our Success”  through T- Transparency, A-Accountability and P-Progress.  In our building, we recognize that in order to be academically and emotionally successful, our children need support from both home and school.   As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.  We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she: 

    1.        Attends school daily and arrives on time, prepared for the day’s learning experiences.  Breakfast is served from 7:50am until 8:20am and class begins promptly at 8:20am.  Students are dismissed at 3:10pm.  

    2.       Is enrolled in and accessing their Google Classroom pages, while completing their assignments on time.  

    3.       Share school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.

    4.       Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and is praised consistently for meeting those expectations. 

      As mentioned above, a positive home and school partnership is vital to our young scholars’ success.  We ask that you be an active participant within the Mayfair Elementary School family.  You may do this by attending monthly parental meetings, becoming an active member of the PTA and staying abreast of your child’s progress by participating in Parent/Teacher conferences, monitoring your child’s grades on ProgressBook and maintaining open lines of communication with staff.    Open House will take place on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 at 4:00pm.   This event will give you an overview of the curriculum and expectations for our scholars, as well as the support services available.  You will also have the opportunity to meet the Mayfair Elementary School staff and learn about family engagement opportunities.  Should you not be able to attend, we ask that you send a representative for your family.  We look forward to seeing you there! 

    In conclusion, our staff is committed to seeing our young cardinals learn and mature.  By providing challenging and individualized instruction that promotes literacy, socio-emotional well-being and problem solving skills our students will be prepared for middle school and beyond.  We encourage you to remain involved by maintaining open lines of communication with school staff, attending school events and joining our PTA.   Please feel free to call me at 216-268-6650 should you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you in advance for your continued support during this school year!

    Sincerely,



    Shawna M. LeSure, M. Ed
