3/15/2019: Your Weekly Update for Mayfield Intermediate

Successful Honor Roll Ceremony!

Last week we started a new tradition at Mayfield Intermediate School by hosting our 1st Semester Honor Roll Ceremony. We recognized 249 Mayfield Bobcats for their hard work inside the classroom and outside the classroom. Students received certificates for being on the Superintendent's Honor Roll (All A's on their report card) and Principal's Honor Roll (All A's and B's on their report card).


During the ceremony we talked about excellence. We shared how each and every single student participating in the ceremony was an example of excellence at Mayfield. We are proud of their accomplishments and look forward to watching them grow while they are part of Manassas City Public Schools.


A special thank you to Dr. Newman, MCPS School Board Chair Mr. Willliams and MCPS School Board member Mrs. Seaburg for attending our event and shaking hands with all 249 students. It is great when our community comes together to support our students and celebrate their success. Additionally, thank you to Ms. Broskey, Ms. Coombs, Ms. Callahan, Mr. Krizmanich, and Ms. Wise for your help before and during the ceremony.

Statewide Tornado Drill on March 19, 2019

STATEWIDE TORNADO DRILL

The Statewide Tornado Drill is a yearly opportunity to prepare Virginians for tornado emergencies and to test public warning systems.


Save the date! The Virginia State Emergency Communications Committee and the National Weather Service will conduct a statewide tornado drill and Emergency Alert System (EAS) test on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, at 9:45 a.m. or on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at 9:45 a.m. as the backup date if severe weather impacts the Commonwealth of Virginia on March 19.


At approximately 9:45 a.m., the National Weather Service will send a test tornado warning over NOAA Weather Radios. This test signal will sound a tone alert, show a test message or flash to indicate a message, simulating what people would hear or see during an actual tornado warning. Local radio stations, TV stations and cable outlets will also broadcast the test message via the Emergency Alert System.


Students at Mayfield will practice what we will do here at Mayfield in the event that a tornado is in the area. This will be great practice as we come into the spring season.

Mayfield Career Day

Mayfield Intermediate School's Career Day will be Friday, March 29 from 8:00 to 11:00 AM. This event is a great opportunity for our students to see all the careers that they can start preparing for even at this young age. I know that this will be a rewarding experience for our students as well as our Career Day presenters. Please consider donating some of your time to come in and support our Mayfield Bobcats with your knowledge and expertise!
