A Message from Dr. Frischkorn
Good Afternoon Mayfield!
Today Mayfield hosted our first Black History Month Assembly and it was absolutely phenomenal. I want to thank Mrs. Porter and Mrs. Dove for organizing this amazing event for our students and our community. That you to our special guests Dr. Newman, School Board Chair Williams, Manassas City Council Member Mrs. Davis-Younger and local hip-hop artist Brien Johnson.
We also had some very talented performances by our own students and staff. Mrs. Porter shared some fascinating facts regarding black history, Mrs. Farmer read a powerful poem by Dr. Maya Angelou, Mrs. Hunley sang an inspiring song, Mr. Badjie led the student is a great song and Ms Porter choreographed a performance by our very own Mayfield Student Dance Team.
Today was definitely a proud Mayfield Moment. I'm so fortunate to be the principal of this incredible community of leaders and scholars.
