From the Voyager Academy Managing Director, Dec. 1, 2019


Good Morning, 

We hope that each and every one of you enjoyed a Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family and are ready to return to us with a full heart and spirit as we finish out the next few weeks of school through winter break.

As many of you likely heard during the break, one of our Voyager family has lost his battle with cancer during the break. Coach Pete Shankle will be missed by so many of our families, current and former, for his strength, his integrity, his dedication to our program and his love for his student athletes.  We share with you the links to some local articles that provide just a bit of the accomplishments and celebrations for Coach Shankle.  


Our building counselors will be available for any staff or students who would like to talk and share their feelings or need support. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow on time and ready for a great week at school! 

Regards,

Jennifer Lucas, M.ED.

Hello Middle School Families, 
Wow, what a busy week!  We completed our first round of the NC Check Ins.  The students put forth much effort. Our Check Ins will provide our teachers with data that will help them determine areas or skills needing additional support or areas or skills that are strong areas for the students.  Information that we receive will be used during MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) time to provide support or acceleration to our students.

From the Managing Director's Desk, Nov. 17, 2019


Good Morning, 

I would like to congratulate two more student athletes as they commit to play baseball in college:
Matt Dobson will be attending Belmont Abbey and Konan Pete will be attending Wake Tech.  We look forward to honoring these and other student athletes at our upcoming signing day ceremony. 
Parents, please see the below invitation for you to join and attend our EXPO group. This group is to bring parents and community together in support of our students in the EC or AIG program. We want to hear from you and provide new and exciting ways to support our children and the program.

Hi!

This is the season to be thankful and grateful for all of our many blessings.  I have so many things to be thankful for and near the very top is our teachers and staff at the elementary school, our students and their families.  I hope you can stop and take a breath and look at the positives in your life and take time to be thankful. I am appreciative you for allowing us to serve your children. It is an honor to know you trust us with your most precious possession of all.   It is a true blessing to know them, to teach them and to see the light bulb come on when they learn something new. Our profession is hard and at the same time oh so rewarding.

Hi Voyager Middle School Families,

It's been a very busy week at Voyager Middle School! On Tuesday evening we celebrated our middle school athletes who participated in Fall Sports. Our student athletes were extremely successful but more importantly, they always showed great sportsmanship!  Great job, student athletes!
