From the Voyager Academy Managing Director, Oct. 30, 2020

Dear Voyager Community,

It’s been a wonderful week at Voyager! The teachers and students are deep into their lessons and projects and the year is flying by too quickly. It was fun to celebrate with all the elementary and middle school students and staff at their assemblies this morning.  Pictures below highlight some of the elementary staff character pumpkins shared at the Fall in Love with Books assembly.

Hello Middle School Parents, 

It has been a great week at Voyager Middle School.  Over the past couple of weeks I received several emails from many of our students asking if we could have some fun activities integrated into our school day.  The students shared that they would like to be more connected to school.  What smart students we have!

Dear Voyager Community,

Welcome back from Fall break!  I hope you all have had a great week and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. It’s hard to believe that next week is the end of October. The high school advisory sessions this week went really well and the staff greatly appreciated all the student engagement.  Middle School report cards are on their way highlighting student achievement for the first quarter. The elementary and middle school have some exciting assemblies planned for Friday, October 30th to connect with our students and have fun together. We hope you will all join in on the assemblies!
