This is a great camp for new Vikings who might be feeling a little nervous about their upcoming school adventure, or those who just can’t for the official first day!  Listed below are the dates and sessions:

Hello Middle School Families, 
Happy belated Valentine’s Day!  Friday was a terrific day at Voyager Middle School!  Our students were excited due to Valentine’s Day. Our Theatre Arts Program was very successful with their Valentine Gram Fundraiser. The team shared that 200 grams were purchased and delivered to middle school friends. I used the Valentine Gram fundraiser to surprise members of my ACT (Achieving Character Together) group. Thanks Mrs. Thompson and Ms. Wicker for providing this opportunity to students and staff!

From the Managing Director's Desk, Feb. 9, 2020

Good Afternoon Viking Families,

First let us say thank you so much for all the families who supported us last week during the inclement weather and for helping us ensure student safety. We know that Friday was an inconvenience after starting school and then dismissing, but we do our best with the information we have, but this time around we didn’t get it right.  We hope you enjoyed the day off, and we look forward to seeing everyone on Monday. Below is a message form the Governing Board. Please note the link inside the message to our Board application for anyone interested in joining our Board. Below that, please see the information to sign up for Spring Break drivers ed class.

Hello Middle School Families, 
What an ending to a terrific week!  I can’t thank you enough for all the support you gave the middle school through the tornado warning, the downpours of rain, and the loss of power in the middle of our car line on Friday.
