Week 8 Edition of the Mayfield Messenger

Message from Dr. Frischkorn

Good Evening Mayfield Intermediate School students and families!

October is the month that Virginia School Board Association recognizes Bullying Prevention Month. Here at Mayfield Intermediate School, we strive to ensure that all our students feel accepted and connected with the students and staff. This positive connection must be established so that students can be present every day at school and prepared to learn.

We address all claims of bullying at Mayfield Intermediate School immediately and resolve situations between students so our community can continue to flourish. Childhood bullying is a significant problem nationwide. It can cause school absenteeism, mental and physical stress, poor school performance, poor self-esteem, and, in some cases, school violence. One out of every five (20.2%) students report being bullied, According to the National Center for Educational Statistics 2019. This means that upwards of thirteen million school-aged children are bullied each year.

Monday, October 3, is Blue Shirt Day as well. We are hoping to see all our teachers, students, and staff wear blue on Monday in support of stomping out bullying at Mayfield Intermediate School.

Always Learning,

Dr. Donald Frischkorn





Happy National Translators Day

Today is International Translation Day. In 2017, to honor one of the oldest vocations and recognize translators, interpreters, and terminologists across the globe, the United Nations General Assembly declared September 30th to be International Translation Day.

Today, we pay tribute to those who paved the way for the important work of all language professionals. The UN says International Translation Day is meant as an opportunity to pay tribute to the work of language professionals, which plays an important role in bringing nations together, facilitating dialogue, understanding, and cooperation, contributing to development, and strengthening world peace and security. You can read more about International Translation Day on the United Nations site.
