Voyager Academy Middle School News, March 3, 2019

Dear VAMS Families,

Can you believe it’s March and only 3 months before summer?  We have much work to do before May 24. Please encourage your children/our students to put forth their best effort so we will all finish strong.  

Shark Tank
If you have a 7th grader, make sure you ask about Shark Tank!  

Schedule Conversation with Rising 9th Graders
Carly Morton, Laura Howell, Leigh Dodson, Tonya Farrish, and Jill O’Kane met with our 8th graders on Thursday during their MTSS time.  The purpose of the visit was to share information regarding high school courses.  All 8th graders should have taken home a form to be completed with you.  ALL students need to return the course form to their homeroom teacher no later than March 7.  If you have questions, feel free to contact Leigh Dodson, HS assistant principal or Chuck Nolan, HS principal.

Yearbook Orders
Order your yearbook now!  You can order online or you can complete the information on the order form that was sent home with all students and include your payment in the envelope.  Checks should be made payable to Strawbridge. If you order online, go to The online code is 108404.

Memory Ad for 8th Graders
Memory ads are always a great way to celebrate the end of the middle school years and the beginning of high school.  All 8th graders should have taken home a Memory Ad form this past Tuesday.  Ads need to be returned to Ms. Pam.

Aladdin is Coming – Yes, another fabulous musical is on the way!  Aladdin will be performed at the middle school on April 4, April 5, and April 6.  Please put these dates on your calendar!

8th Grade Graduation – Many of you have asked about our 8th Grade Graduation.  Our 8th Grade Celebration, not graduation, is scheduled for Friday, May 24.  We will begin at 8:45 and it is usually an hour. 8th graders may leave after the celebration.
