Message from Dr. Frischkorn
Good Evening Mayfield!
Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15. National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries.
Did you know that 436 Mayfield Intermediate School students shared that Spanish is their native language? That is an awesome statistic that again highlights the diverse community that we get to celebrate with every day that we come to school. We are fortunate to live in such a dynamic community that consists of people from worldwide.
We are extremely fortunate to have the talented Ms. Herrera as a staff member. She created several videos highlighting the many Hispanic heritage favorites that can be found throughout our amazing city.
Here’s some local footage to spark conversation in your bobcat block, if you’d like to use it.
