Voyager Academy Elementary School News, Dec. 8, 2019

There is certainly a spirit in the air and our kids are super excited at this time of the year.  I love the wonder of their spirit and the sweetness they exude. We are so lucky to share this season with you all.

School of Readers:  Our tree in the lobby will be decorated by students as they are able.  The theme will be around academics and special area subjects such as reading, math, music, art, science, LEGOS or physical education.  I look forward to seeing the crafts and designs they come up with for the tree.
