Spring Break from April 15 to April 22

Spring break is a milestone during the school year. It is a time to relax, celebrate, and become rejuvenated for the last 7 weeks of school. It is my hope that every enjoys their break and returns on Tuesday, April 23 ready to work hard and finish the school year strong.

SOL Testing Begins May 14th

When we return from spring break we will have a couple weeks before we start SOL testing. Our goal is for students to be excited about participating in the SOL exam. The SOL exam should be a time for students to show off how much they have learned this year and how much they have grown. Please start telling your child how proud you are of them and how they are going to rock on the SOL exam. They are prepared to experience success!

Thank You!

I just wanted to say thank you to our Mayfield staff and the Manassas City School Board for celebrating with me as I recently completed a 6 year journey towards completing my Doctor of Education degree from Virginia Tech on March 29th. We celebrated with some cake at our staff meeting on Wednesday and the School Board provided special recognition during the Superintendents spotlight at the April 9 School Board meeting. Manassas City is a special place to work and learn and I feel extremely fortunate to be a part of this community.
