Week 18 Edition of the Mayfield Messenger/December 9, 2022
Message from Dr. Frischkorn
Good Evening Mayfield Intermediate School students and families!
Today was another day we celebrated our students at Mayfield Intermediate School. We hosted our second Student of the Month Celebration for October and November. Again, we were so happy with the large turnout of families supporting their children. It was a great time recognizing over 60 students selected by their classmates and teachers for this honor. As is Mayfield tradition, the students were rewarded with a donut. However, we also had an additional reward for the students, and each Student of the month was presented with a Mayfield Intermediate School t-shirt! The new t-shirts came out great, and we plan to provide a t-shirt to every Student of the month nominee for the remainder of the year. We promise to ensure that our August and September student of the month nominees get a shirt.
We hope everyone is ready for the last week of school before the Winter Break. Students will have an early dismissal on Friday, December 16, at 11:20 AM.
In this week's edition of the Mayfield Messenger, we have the following:
- Student Survey Notification
- Winter Virginia Student Growth Assessment
- Daily School Attendance is Important

Student Survey Notification
All students in the 6th grade will have an opportunity to take a survey created by the Virginia Department of Education and the Department of Criminal Justice Services. The survey is intended to measure student support, student engagement, discipline, and safety conditions within the school. The survey will be administered during the week of January 9th. Below you can download an informative letter to the parents and a copy of the questions that students will be asked.
Winter Virginia Student Growth Assessment
Beginning with the second year of implementation (2022-2023) and beyond, the legislation requires that the grades 3-8 reading and mathematics growth assessments be administered to students once in the fall and once in the winter (mid-year) during the school year. All students have completed their winter Virginia Student Growth Assessment (VSGA). This is an assessment that monitors how the students are growing academically throughout the school year. In the coming weeks, teachers will be able to analyze the data, see areas where their students are doing well, and develop ways to support their academic needs.
Mayfield Intermediate School Winter Chorus Concert
Please join us in celebrating the winter season with a concert by our 5th and 6th grade chorus. Our chorus is directed by Ms. Hellebuyck. The students have been preparing throughout the first semester of school and we are excited to see their performance.
We will be getting dates out for our orchestra and band performances after the winter break.

Mrs. Holbrook and Mrs. Brown's Class Field Trip
Mrs. Holbrook's and Mrs. Brown's students recently participated in a field trip to Billy Beez. We want to thank Billy Beez for welcoming our students. They had a wonderful time and it was a great experience.
Attendance is Important
Throughout the school year, we have emphasized the importance of daily attendance for our students. Currently, about 21% of our school’s student population is considered Chronically Absent. That percentage is far too high, and we want to help! A student can become Chronically absent by missing too much school. This can include any absence (Excused or Unexcused).
As a school, we will work with students and families who are at risk of being chronically absent. To learn more about chronic absenteeism, check out this informational newsletter that we have created.
If you need additional support with helping your child get to school every day, please let us know so we can work together.
Good Evening, You are receiving this newsletter update because your child's attendance during this school year is a concern, and we want to support you and your child. Our records indicated that your child had missed enough school days to be considered chronically absent from school.
