A Message from Dr. Frischkorn

Greetings Mayfield Community!

We have hit the interim point of the first quarter. Students will be bringing home grade reports that show their academic achievement for the first 5 weeks of the school year. This is a great time to reflect and celebrate the success of our students. If your child's grade isn't where you expected them to be, then speak with your child and see what adjustments they can make and set a goal to work towards over the next 5 weeks.



Dr. Donald Frischkorn

Thank you to our staff and parents for your commitment to work together in order to help our students achieve success. I have heard about a lot of positive conversations that were had at the parent teacher conferences on Thursday and Friday. #BetterTogether

September is Attendance Awareness Month

School attendance is essential to academic success. Research shows that missing as little as two days every month, or ten percent of the school year can have a significant impact on students. Missing school can translate into third-graders unable to master reading, sixth-graders failing courses and ultimately, teens dropping out of high school. In Virginia, missing ten percent of the school year is considered chronic absenteeism. Chronic absenteeism includes excused and unexcused absences. If you want more information regarding attendance, please check out the Attendance Works web page at the following link:
