A Message from Dr. Frischkorn

Greetings Mayfield Community!


On Friday we got the opportunity to host our first school social of the year after school. We would like to thank Ms. Broskey, Mr. Pittman and Mrs. Hammad for their efforts in selling tickets, organizing and putting together the materials to have a successful get together for our students. Also, a huge shout out to the transportation department for providing us with activity buses to help get the students home at the conclusion of the event. Proceeds from our school socials will help fund out Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program at our school.


This upcoming week we will be welcoming parents into Mayfield for Parent/Teacher Conferences on Thursday and Friday. Parents, please make sure you touch base with your child's teacher and set up a time to discuss their success. Our 1st quarter interim report cards are also coming home on Wednesday.


Thanks!

Parent-Teacher Conferences

On Thursday and Friday Manassas City Public Schools will be having early release days for students. Mayfield students will be dismissed at 11:20 AM. This will provide teachers time to meet with parents and discuss the current academic progress that their child has made at the 5 week mark of the new school year. Please find a time that works for you and come visit your child's teacher. All children can learn better when we all work together. #BetterTogether

Safety Patrols

Congratulations to our newest Safety Patrols at Mayfield Intermediate School. Mrs. Dove provided the students with a rigorous training program and the students went through a selection process. We had over 100 students apply to be part of this great program. We were able to select 46 members. Mrs. Dove provided the Safety Patrols with their belts this week and next week we are having our annual Safety Patrol Induction Ceremony that will have special guests from the Manassas City Police Department, central office, and the community.

Robotics at Mayfield

The Mayfield Robotics team will be organizing soon. We would like to thank Ms. Torres for stepping up to coach the robotics team again this year. Ms. Innamorato will be the assistant coach for the team. Permission forms/application packets will be coming home in the next week. Please fill out the application as soon as possible. Ms. Torres attended the robotics coaching meeting on Friday to learn about the new challenges that our students will face during competitions.

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: https://www.attendanceworks.org/


Attend today, achieve tomorrow!
