A Message from Dr. Frischkorn
I want to start this week's newsletter by thanking Mrs. Harris-Castaneda, Ms. Hardy, Mrs. Clark, Mrs. Tarne and Mrs. Raynor- Honey for their efforts to bring their classes to the Special Olympics event that was held at Manassas Park High School on Friday, October 4. Our students had such a wonderful time participating and sharing in the fun activities with students from school in Manassas City, Manassas Park, and Prince William County. Thank you to Manassas Park and Mrs. Kiernan-Graham for organizing this event for our students.
Dr. Donald Frischkorn

Patriot's Pen Essay Contest
Each year more than 111,000 students in grades 6-8 enter the VFW’s Patriot’s Pen youth essay contest for a chance to win their share of more than $900,000 in state and national awards. Each first-place state winner receives a minimum of $500 at the national level, and the national first-place winner wins $5,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.
The essay contest encourages young minds to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences in modern American society, by drafting a 300- to 400-word essay, expressing their views based on a patriotic theme chosen by the VFW Commander-in-Chief. If any 6th graders here at Mayfield would like to participate, please contact your homeroom teacher. All student entries must be submitted to a sponsoring local VFW Post by midnight, Oct. 31.
