Mayfield Messenger

Week 1 Edition of the Mayfield Messenger

Message from Dr. Frischkorn

Good Evening Mayfield Intermediate School students and families!

We just concluded a successful first week of school. I'm so proud to serve as the principal of Mayfield, and this past week reemphasized why I love serving our community. It started with a fantastic Open House night as we saw almost every student and their families visit our school and meet their teachers. It continued to be an incredible first school day on Wednesday when we welcomed with open arms our 850 students. The day concluded with another seamless dismissal, and our buses were leaving Mayfield at 2:20 PM.

Always Learning,

Dr. Donald Frischkorn

Creating Community in the Classroom

During the first week of school, teachers and students must work together to create a community within their classroom. Every homeroom class has been working together to complete a Social Contract. A Social Contract is an agreement among the classroom community focused on how they will treat each other throughout the school year. We are so excited to see our learning communities continue to come together to grow throughout the year.

Breakfast and Lunch at Mayfield Intermediate School

All Manassas City Public Schools students are eligible for a free breakfast and lunch during the 2022-2023 school year. Our food and nutrition staff is ready to feed all Mayfield students during the school day. We hope our students continue to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to receive two nutritious meals during the school day. Our breakfast serving lines move efficiently in the morning, and we can have all students through the breakfast lines and in their homerooms by 7:10 AM, well before the 7:15 AM tardy bell. We would love to see the number of students eating breakfast increase next week.

Our lunches have been going exceptionally well. Students have a 30-minute break for lunches. Our cafeteria staff has been able to quickly and effectively serve all students during their assigned lunch shifts and give them plenty of time to eat and enjoy their food.

Arrival and Dismissal

Arrival and Dismissal continue to run extremely smooth for Mayfield Intermediate. We have seen our bus ridership increase among our students, which leads to far less traffic in the morning and the afternoon. We are currently seeing about 100 students getting dropped off in the morning, and our families have done a great job following the traffic pattern to ensure that all our students arrive safely and on time.

Our homeroom teachers have outstandingly supported our bus riders and ensured that all our students know how they are getting home every afternoon. The fact that our buses are able to leave at their regularly scheduled time during the first three days of school is an impressive accomplishment.

Back-to-School Night at Mayfield Intermediate

Tuesday, Sep. 6th, 5-7pm

9400 Mayfield Court

Manassas, VA

Mayfield Intermediate School will host a Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, September 6th. At the Back-to-School Night event, you will experience some of the learning activities your child participates in throughout the school day. We will also assist parents in setting up their Parent Portal accounts so they can monitor their child's academic performance throughout the school year.

Create you Parent Portal Account

Monitoring your child's academic growth throughout the year is a huge part of supporting your child during the school year. Each child's development depends on the school and the home working together to support and enrich each child's education. Take a moment to sign up for a Parent Portal account to begin checking in on how your child is doing academically.

Creating Your Parent Portal Account

  1. Go to this URL:
  2. Click on Create Account.
  3. Click on Create Account again.
  4. Enter your information (first name, last name, email, desired username, and password). Please note the password must be at least six (6) characters long.
  5. In the Link Students to Account section, enter your child’s name, access ID, and access password (included on the letter mailed home). Identify your relationship with the child. Repeat this step if you have additional children attending MCPS. You can link up to seven different accounts.
  6. When you are finished, click Enter.
  7. After you click Enter, you will be brought to the Student and Parent Sign In page, where you can access your Parent Portal Account.
  8. If you forget your username or password, click the forgot username or password option at the bottom of the sign-in screen. Enter your username and email address that was used to establish the account, and you will receive an email allowing you to reset your password.

Parent Portal Dashboard

The Parent Portal has a blue header running across the upper portion of the screen. If a parent has more than one child linked to his/her account, the parent can view different children by clicking on each student's name. On the left side of the screen is the main navigation menu and each option is defined below:

  • Grades/Attendance: Displays grades and attendance.
  • Grade History: Shows a summary of grades for each year the student has been enrolled.
  • Attendance History: Provides an attendance report for the current term.
  • E-mail Notification: Allows parents to select options for email alerts.
  • Teacher Comments: Displays the selected terms, teacher comments, by class.
  • School Bulletin: Displays an daily announcement the school may have posted for parents.
  • Class Registration: Allows parents to view student's course requests for the upcoming year if the school uses online course registration.
  • My Schedule: Provides a view of a student’s current schedule.
  • School Information: Provides contact information for the school that a student attends.
  • Account Preferences: Allows parents to change their login credentials or add additional students to their account.
  • Returning Student Registration: Provides parents the opportunity to update their address, phone numbers, email address, emergency contacts, etc. This is only available during the months of August and September.
