From the Voyager Academy Managing Director, Oct.8, 2017

Good Afternoon Viking Families,

Good morning everyone! We hope your long fall break has started off well and you have plans to enjoy your family time! There was a lot going on here at Voyager last week, so please get caught up on all our great news! I would like to congratulate one of our elementary teachers who was recognized as  WQDR’s Gold Star Teacher of the Month! A huge congratulations goes to Heather Roberts and all of her hard work for our kids. She is a wonderful teacher and we could not agree more with her selection.

DEAR VAMS FAMILIES
Thanks to all of you who donated gift cards for Smith Academy in Houston, Texas.  The gift cards have been shipped to the principal of Smith Academy to distribute to the families in need.  I know there will be lots of smiles and probably some tears when the box full of gift cards totaling $4298 is opened.  What a great job by the entire Voyager Academy community!

STUDENTS MUST BRING THEIR DEVICES TO SCHOOL
Voyager Academy requires that every student in grades 7-12 have his or her own laptop for use in school and at home as a part of our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. Students use their computers extensively for academic purposes. Most software, resources, and services that students utilize are cloud-based and accessible via a modern web browser. Students use Google’s G Suite for office software (word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, etc), so Microsoft Office is not required.  Please make sure your student has his/her laptop and charger with him/her at all times.
