1st Quarter Update

A Message from Dr. Frischkorn

Greetings Mayfield Community!


Wednesday, October 16, 2019 marks the end of the 1st quarter of the 2019-2020 school year. This is definitely a milestone in the school year that should be celebrated. The first 9 weeks of a school year are always busy and takes a lot of energy from the students and the school staff. We welcomed 437 new 5th grade students from 5 different elementary schools. We have new students registering to be part of Manassas City Public Schools on a daily basis. Our 429 6th grade students continue to lead by example and our teachers work on preparing them for the middle school transition that is coming after this year.


Wednesday, October 16th is an early release day for students. Students will be dismissed at 11:20 AM.


Thanks!

Digital Citizenship Week, October 14-18, 2019

Digital citizens think critically about what they see online, understand the benefits and risks of sharing information, and balance screen time with other activities. But digital citizens aren't born—they're taught by parents and teachers like you!



Hers is a quick video that talks about what digital citizenship is:

Patriot's Pen Essay Contest

Each year more than 111,000 students in grades 6-8 enter the VFW’s Patriot’s Pen youth essay contest for a chance to win their share of more than $900,000 in state and national awards. Each first-place state winner receives a minimum of $500 at the national level, and the national first-place winner wins $5,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.


The essay contest encourages young minds to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences in modern American society, by drafting a 300- to 400-word essay, expressing their views based on a patriotic theme chosen by the VFW Commander-in-Chief. If any 6th graders here at Mayfield would like to participate, please contact your homeroom teacher. All student entries must be submitted by Oct. 29
