Voyager Academy Middle School News, Oct. 6, 2019

Dear VAMS Families,
Wow, it’s hard to believe that we have completed the first nine week of school.  Our students have worked very hard and our teachers have prepared to ensure each day has a lesson that is of benefit to students.

Our 5th grade students are working on their Shark Tank project.  If you have not attended the Shark Tank Projection Celebration, you have missed outstanding presentations.  The 5th graders are in the process of creating their projects and are working well with their team members.

Car Line Reminder
If you are picking up students at the elementary and the middle school, please do not arrive before 3:05.  Often we cause a gridlock by having so many cars turning to enter the middle school car line.

If you are only picking up middle school students, you should not be  in the elementary car line. You need to get in the middle school line on Ben Franklin.  That line begins moving at 3:15.
Report Cards
Report cards will be sent home on Friday, Oct. 18.  Be on the lookout!

Teacher Luncheon
The next VAMS teacher luncheon is the Tuesday after Fall Break. Be on the lookout for the signup genius.

National Junior Honor Society Service Project
Thanks to all of you who donated food to our Food Drive for Urban Ministries sponsored by National Junior Honor Society.   We collected enough food to fill 6 boxes. Urban Ministries is most appreciative of our donation. 
Fall Picture Retakes
Our fall picture retake date is Oct. 28.

Fall Festival
Voyager’s Fall Festival is Friday, Oct. 25 from 6:00-8:30.  I’m sure all will have a great time!
