Mayfield Messenger

May 23, 2022: Final Edition for the 2021-2022 School Year

Message from Dr. Frischkorn

Good Evening Mayfield!

We have one week of school to continue learning and celebrating how much our students and our staff have grown. It's hard to believe that this is the last Mayfield Messenger of the school year. This time next week, our students and staff will be home and enjoying the start of their well-deserved summer break. I want to reflect on the three hashtags I have included in my signature line throughout the school year.


We have used the #MayfieldISProud hashtag since I started here as the principal of Mayfield Intermediate School on July 2, 2018. This entire year solidified why I am proud to be your principal and serve the community of Manassas. We started planning for students to return for in-person learning in July 202; there was still a lot of uncertainty due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our staff returned and welcomed our students and their return to the school building. It was their first time in the building for many of our students since March 13, 2020. How would the students respond, help support our students who need more help with their reading and math skills, and how will we help students if they need to miss school? We answered these questions throughout the year, and our students thrived from being here in the building. We witness all our students increase their academic achievement over the year and make up for some lost learning. I'm so proud of the growth that our students and staff displayed over the year.


Our students and staff returned this year stronger than ever. We learned so much from our year of virtual learning, and we understood what our students needed when they returned to in-person learning. We missed the daily interactions with our students, and we were committed to making sure that our students would have the opportunity to collaborate and work with their peers. Every day our staff would reflect and look for ways to grow so that we were better for our students the next day when they returned to the class. Our students were reflective, and we preached to our students that each day was a new opportunity to learn and grow.


The goal of our school is to help students become active citizens within our community and be able to communicate, collaborate, and think critically. When our students graduate from Osbourn High School in 2028 and 2029, we hope that they are ready to solve the issues affecting our community. We need our future graduates to be outside-the-box thinkers that can make our community a better place. This year the students at Mayfield showed resilience and the ability to adjust and find new ways to learn and grow. We hope they continue this as 6th graders and Metz Middle School students!

Thank you to all our students, parents, and community members for your support throughout the school year. I'm excited about our future here at Mayfield Intermediate School and all the schools in Manassas City.

Your Proud Principal,

Dr. Donald Frischkorn

Thank You 6th-Graders for being Amazing Mayfield Bobcats

As our 6th graders prepare to move on to Metz, we would like to take a moment to thank them for being amazing Mayfield Bobcats. Their two years here at Mayfield were nothing short of unique, and we are so glad that we got to share this past year with them as we returned to the building.

We celebrated with our 6th graders on Friday during the End-of-the-Year Celebration that Mayfield hosted after school. Special thanks to Ms. Broskey and the entire 6th-grade team of teachers for organizing this fun event that helped our students come together and celebrate.

Student Laptop Return Starts Tuesday, May 24

We will begin collecting students' laptop devices on Tuesday, May 24th for both 5th and 6th-grade students. Students will come with their homeroom teachers and drop off their laptops. Students must return their laptops with the following items:

  • Laptop
  • Charging Cord
  • Laptop Protective Carrying Case

As the devices are turned in we will have a Mayfield Intermediate staff member assess the device for damages and check of the child has returned all the required materials.

Report Cards and SOL Scores will be Mailed Home

Final report cards will be mailed to families and include the SOL reports for your child's assessments. Please look for the mailing to be delivered the week of June 6.

You can also view your child's grades using the online Parent Portal.
