A Message from Dr. Frischkorn

Good Afternoon Mayfield!


Mayfield has been a busy place for the past 2 days. We had so many parents come to the school to meet with teachers and check in on their child's progress. It takes a combined effort between the parents and the school in order to provide the best education possible for our students. Thank you all for doing whatever it takes to make sure that our Mayfield Bobcats succeed.


Also, we welcomed all the assistant principals from Manassas City to Mayfield on Friday and they gave such amazing compliments to our students. The entire group was impressed with how friendly and welcoming our students and staff were here at Mayfield. We definitely are building a very special school climate here at Mayfield.


With gratitude,

Mayfield Parent Advisory Meeting

Monday, Feb. 17th, 7pm

9400 Mayfield Court

Old Town Manassas, VA

We are going to host our first Mayfield Parent Advisory Meeting. The purpose of this meeting is for the school administration to share our mission and our vision with our parents and to help them understand the type of learning environment that we hope to offer to our students on a daily basis. All parents are welcome to attend.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Reminder: The School Day Starts at 7:15 AM

This is a friendly reminder that the school day starts at 7:15 AM. I have been noticing that our car drop off line is getting a little backed up right at 7:15 and students are showing up late to school. It's important that students enter the school building before 7:15 AM so that they are ready and prepared for the school day. If you are a car rider, please adjust your morning schedules to make sure that you are arriving to school on-time.


Thanks!

Congratulations to our Apple and Pear Award Winners

Congratulation to Leticia Foster and Nancy Potter for being recognized as our Apple and Pear Award winners. They were selected by our staff here at Mayfield. Ms. Foster is an ESOL teacher here at Mayfield. She does so much to connect with our students and she is a valuable resource to our entire staff. Mrs. Potter is our school's cafeteria manager. She is one of the most pleasant people that I have ever met and she is always greeting our students in the morning with a smile and healthy breakfast.


Mayfield is very proud to recognize these two staff members for their commitment to our students and staff.

SOL Testing Dates

It's had to believe, but SOL testing is right around the corner. We will start SOL testing during the last week of April. Prior to SOL testing we will give our students plenty of opportunities to become familiar with the testing protocol so that when they take the test, it's all about them showing off how much they learned this year. Please look at the calendars below.


5th Grade SOL Exams: Reading, Math and Science

6th Grade SOL Exams: Reading and Math


March- Students will be administered the Student Growth Assessment (SGA). The SGA assesses students on all the content that has been taught throughout the school year. The SGA provides valuable information that teachers can use to help offer students further assistance prior to the SOL exams in April and May.


April- Students will return from Spring Break and have 2 weeks of time that can be used to help familiarize the students with the SOL testing website. Students will be provided time to use their laptops to make sure that they understand how to use the tools that are available to them while they take the SOL exam. SOL testing will begin during the last week of April. To keep it simple, 5th grade students will have SOL exams on 3 consecutive Tuesdays. 6th Grade students will have SOL exams on 2 consecutive Thursdays.


May- Students will finish up SOL exams in early May. Students who are eligible will have the opportunity to take an expedited retake. Students who score between 375-399 on their first attempt on the SOL will be provided the opportunity to try the SOL exam again.

Community Building at Mayfield

At Mayfield Intermediate School we not only focus on the academic learning, but we also focus on social emotional learning and providing students with experiences that they will remember once they leave Mayfield and move on to new adventures.
