From the Voyager Academy Managing Director, Sept. 15, 2019

Dear Viking Families, 
Hope you all had a nice weekend and are ready for another great week at Voyager! All our kids and teachers are working hard and you will see great pictures from a few field trips last week that our students enjoyed as they do each year.  Make sure you take note of information below on the PSAT for interested students, the new Science Olympiad information and a great Arts Program update regarding a NEW show choir camp for 3rd-6th graders. This is a new great camp opportunity!

Dear VAMS Families,
Oh my goodness, we were in school 5 days this week and  it has been great!

Our 8th graders have worked on designing their own periodic table after learning about the periodic table during science class.  They were able to select their topic of choice.

From the Managing Director's Desk, Sept. 8, 2019

Dear Viking Families, 
It was a short and disrupted week for sure, but we as always we appreciate your support and your understanding as we prioritize student and staff safety. For many years, following the course of our local LEAS has been mostly successful as we remember that our students and staff come from as many as 8 surrounding counties where weather and transportation can be a hazard.  We will be looking at this policy during our next board meeting to determine if it serves us best, or if there are other measures we may consider on inclement weather dates. Do keep in mind that our calendars provide for additional instructional time to prevent us needing to make up those days. Speaking of calendars, our calendar committee will be meeting in the next few weeks to confirm our 2-year calendar.  We will also update our policy so that each year, we post a calendar for the 2nd year out, thus allowing families ample time to plan their vacations or activities well in advance.
