Voyager Academy Care (after/before school) Program News, March 31, 2019

Care Program Update

Our students have really been enjoying themselves in after care. Our second graders have been spending time learning to write in cursive!

Ms Baker, from Insight Human Services visited our 1st graders this week. In the coming weeks, Ms Baker will educate students on bullying, teach about the dangers of drug/alcohol use, and encourage positive language and healthy behaviors among students and their peers. Insight Human Services is a grant funded program that I’m taking advantage of. It’s very similar to the D.A.R.E. Program initiative that circulated schools in the 90s. The curriculum spans from Kindergarten to 5th grade. The sessions are only 30 mins long, and students are seeming to enjoy.  My middle school students have already completed the course.


This week, in our cooking/nutrition class, our students made omelets, homemade potatoes, and veggies!

Karate Students are showing off their high kicks!

Spring Break Camp!
Are you looking for a fun, innovative camp to send your child(ren) to? Send them to Voyager! Our camps are full with math, science, and reading enrichment activities. Students will enjoy activities like jeopardy, fun-math relay, and writing/performing a play for their camp peers. Students even have the opportunity to be junior chefs during our cooking activity. (Yes, they will cook)! This year, we will also enjoy a field trip to Palace Pointe in Roxboro, NC! This camp IS open to school-aged students who do not attend Voyager.  As a reminder, there will be no camp/ school on "Good Friday," April 19, 2019! Visit our website to register!

Summer Camps at Voyager Academy!
Information for Summer Camps at Voyager is now featured on our website. We offer many different camps during the summer that I'm certain your students will love to attend! The main summer camp, which runs Monday-Friday from 7:30 am-4:30 pm (optional 5:30 pick-up), features 2 field trips each week, cooking activities, math enrichment, science experiments, and reading/writing enrichment! All field trips plus a cool T-shirt are included in your weekly tuition!
Other camps being offered include:
Musical Theater Camp, Basketball, Volleyball, Doll Making, Junior Chef (Kids cook and eat every day!), DIY Creative Camp, Coding and Tinkering, 1st/2nd grade prep camp*, and an intro to Kindergarten camp**!
**The 1st and 2nd grade prep camp IS open to students who do not attend Voyager.
** The Kindergarten camp is only open to students who will attend Voyager Academy for the 19-20 school year. 
Visit our website to register!
Please note that these camps require a minimum number of students to happen. I encourage you all to register early. Registering early will allow the instructors to better plan for your students to ensure they have a great experience. Early registrations will also give instructors enough time to determine whether or not they are having their camp, which in-turn, provides families with enough time to choose another camp if their preferred camp is cancelled. 
Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me, Latia B! (yes, I rhymed on purpose :))
Kind regards,
