Voyager Academy Middle School News, March 8, 2020

Hello Middle School Families, 
March is here and it certainly came in like a Lion!  Our softball team and baseball team played Friday afternoon.  They had to play Excelsior and the wind! Both teams played well and were very successful.

Round 2 of NC Check Ins
We have received our NC Check In results.  You have or will receive the Student Report.  The reports show the percent correct. Remember the NC Check Ins help our teachers determine the objectives that need more teaching and the objectives that students are performing at a high percentage correct.

Friday, May 15 -     5th and 8th Grade Science

Capital Campaign
Thank you to the very generous donors who have given to our capital campaign to purchase school buses for all students. If you haven’t already donated, please consider “Giving to Voyager” for our capital campaign fundraiser. We need activity buses to help transport our kids to all the wonderful events and activities they enjoy such as field trips, sporting events, arts competitions and much more.  Please visit the donations page here:
You can simply donate through the paypal link or you can view many different “sponsorship opportunities” by downloading the sponsor forms below the link. Your donations can also provide you or your company with advertising, banners, and other great benefits when you support the Voyager community.  If you need additional information on sponsorships opportunities please email me directly at

Some families have asked if they can send in a check made out to Voyager Academy Capital Campaign and the answer is of course you can! Please send a check in a sealed envelope and Capital Campaign on the outside so your child’s teacher can make sure it makes its way into the business office. If you would like a receipt we will certainly send you one via email and we thank you in advance for your support.
