3/11/2019: Your Weekly Update for Mayfield Intermediate

Celebrating our Students' Success!

This week we are having 2 events to celebrate our students who are going above and beyond and excelling inside and outside of the classroom.

On Tuesday, March 12 we will be hosting our Student of the Month recognition. Students will be invited to the cafeteria where they will be recognized by Ms. Whitaker and Mr. Moore for being selected as students of the month for January and February. Each students will be called and we will share why these students were nominated for being students of the month by their teachers. Parents are invited to attend!

On Thursday, March 14 we will be hosting our 1st Semester Honor Roll Ceremony. Students who have received all A's (Superintendent's Honor Roll) and students who have received A's and B's (Principal's Honor Roll) will be recognized. Dr. Newman will be on hand to help celebrate the students' success. Parents are welcome to attend. Seating will be limited due to the fact that we will be celebrating nearly 250 students.

These will be two exciting events that we hope will become staples of the tradition of Mayfield. We want to make sure that we celebrate our successes and recognize the students for their hard work and effort.

Rising 7th Grade Registration for Metz Middle School

Our 6th graders will be registering for their 2019-2020 classes at Metz throughout the week. Please take time to discuss the classes that your child plans of registering for. It's hard to believe, but in just over 14 weeks your child will be ready to begin a new chapter in their educational journey at Metz Middle School. Thank you to Ms. Peterson, Mrs. Dutchess and Ms. Thomasson for assisting the students with the registration process.

5th Grade Boys Basketball

Welcome to another season of Mayfield Basketball! Permission slips for basketball are to go home on Monday, March 11. It’s imperative that all kids are given an equal chance to sign up because we will fill up the 60 spots quickly. The permission form is attached to this newsletter as well. We look forward to seeing the talent of our 5th grade Bobcats on the basketball court.

Ballet Field Trip for the 5th Grade

I want to recognize and celebrate our 5th grade students for their terrific behavior during the field trip to see the Manassas Ballet at the Hylton Performing Arts Center. Teachers and administrators shared with me how proud they were of our students during the performance. Our students displayed appropriate concert etiquette and they showed tremendous character traits that show how wonderful Mayfield is.


Read Across America Week!

Last week we celebrated Read Across America Week and we saw many students and staff participate in these wonderful activities. Thank you to Mr. Megenhardt and Mrs. Hammad for organizing the events that took place throughout the week. Here are some photos that were taken during the week of reading celebration.

Monday: The Sleep Book: Wear you pajamas

Tuesday: Fox in Socks: Wear your Silly Socks

Wednesday: Wacky Wednesday: Wear your Funky Pattern clothes

Thursday: Daisy Head Mayzie: Crazy Hair Day

Friday: My Many Colored Days: Dress as your favorite Dr. Suess Character

PTO Sponsors Glow Party

I would like to thank the PTO for sponsoring our Glow Party on Friday night. Mrs. Trupia did an outstanding job organizing and decorating for the party. I would also like to thank the teachers and parents who volunteered their time and made sure that this event was a successful one.

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!

Middle School Sports: Attention All 6th Grade Students

Effective for the spring sports season, sixth graders will be eligible to play spring sports at Metz. Discussions between Dr. Newman (Superintendent of MCPS), Mr. Ruppert (Principal at Metz), Mr. Williams (Activities Director at Metz) and me occurred during the winter months. We all decided that this could be a great opportunity for our students at Mayfield and help continue to build the a positive transition for our students as they prepare for Metz Middle School.

In order to participate in middle school sports students must have 2 items completed:

  1. A school sports physical that is no older than August 1st, 2018
  2. Concussion Training: This is a signed form stating that the the student-athlete and their parent/guardian has reviewed the signs/symptoms of a concussion.

Both these forms can be picked up in the gym or in the front office here at Mayfield.

Tryouts will begin on Monday, March 25th. Sports offered in the spring are; Boys Track, Girls Soccer, Baseball and Softball.
