Voyager Academy Middle School News, Oct. 20, 2019

Dear VAMS Families,

Our 6th grade students are sharing their Space Projects.  The students are sharing facts about their space colony in hopes parents will provide funding for their project.  Much research took place as well as team work when creating and presenting their projects.     

Elective Registration for 7th and 8th Graders for Second Semesters
On Thursday, 7th and 8th grade students received an Elective Registration form to take home and share with parents.  Students need to rank their second semester elective courses and return the completed form with a parent signature to Mrs. Johnson by Monday, Oct. 21st
Report Cards
Students received their first quarter report card on Friday, Oct. 18.  Be on the lookout!

Representative Craig Horn
On Thursday, we had the privilege of having Representative Craig Horn visit Voyager Middle School. Representative Horn spent time with a 6th grade Core Connections class and a 5th grade Social Studies class.  After spending time in the classrooms, Representative Horn and I spent time talking about Voyager, charter schools, public schools, along with other educational topics.  I must say I was thoroughly impressed with the knowledge Representative Horn has regarding education.
