A Message from Dr. Frischkorn
Good Afternoon Mayfield!
This past week all nine schools in Manassas City got to highlight some of the great things that are occuring in our schools during the Superintendent's Spotlight in honor of School Board Appreciation Month. I"m so impressed by the students and staff of MCPS who go above and beyond in order to provide our students with the best learning opportunities.
We are fortunate to have an amazing school board who supports our entire school division. Without their support, we would not be able to do the many great things that we are currently doing. Thank you to our school board!
Check out the video of the past school board meeting in which so many great things were highlighted.

Career Day at Mayfield!
Mayfield will be hosting an exhibition-style Career Day on March 27th, 7:30-10:30 am. This will be an awesome opportunity for local community members to come in and share their career with our students.
We are hoping to get a diverse representation of jobs from the 16 career clusters. The flyer for career day is attached so you can share it around. Presenters can sign up at www.tinyurl.com/MISCareerDay2020.
Details on the flow, timing, and organization of the day will come closer to the event. Let’s get the word out to make this a great day for our students!!

Rising 7th Grade Registration
SOL Testing Dates
5th Grade SOL Exams: Reading, Math and Science
6th Grade SOL Exams: Reading and Math
March- Students will be administered the Student Growth Assessment (SGA). The SGA assesses students on all the content that has been taught throughout the school year. The SGA provides valuable information that teachers can use to help offer students further assistance prior to the SOL exams in April and May.
April- Students will return from Spring Break and have 2 weeks of time that can be used to help familiarize the students with the SOL testing website. Students will be provided time to use their laptops to make sure that they understand how to use the tools that are available to them while they take the SOL exam. SOL testing will begin during the last week of April. To keep it simple, 5th grade students will have SOL exams on 3 consecutive Tuesdays. 6th Grade students will have SOL exams on 2 consecutive Thursdays.
May- Students will finish up SOL exams in early May. Students who are eligible will have the opportunity to take an expedited retake. Students who score between 375-399 on their first attempt on the SOL will be provided the opportunity to try the SOL exam again.
