ENRICHMENTS

The fall semester of Enrichments has come to an end! The students really enjoyed each of their classes, and I know they are looking forward to the Spring 2018 semester. Please take time to view the pictures and videos from the fall classes. The spring enrichment dates are below. The dates have already been posted on our website. Please make note of these dates and add them to your personal calendars.  Fall 2017 Enrichments https://youtu.be/vGmFqizdk20

SPRING 2018 ENRICHMENT SESSION DATES

*Monday, January 22, 2018 thru Friday May 4, 2018* 
New Class Alert!!! We are now able to add the piano class back to our enrichment course offerings. Visit our website for more specific information.
We are also starting the Voyager Academy Middle School Band! Please see the attached flyer for information regarding the interest meeting!
Online registration for all enrichment classes will open on Monday, January 8, 2018 and end Wednesday January 17, 2018. Classes will begin on Monday, January 22. Please check the website regularly for class updates!
Since we normally run in to inclement weather in the Spring semester, I have built 2 weeks of "make-up" classes into the schedule, just in case this happens. In the event we have to cancel classes, the two possible make up weeks are May 7, 2018 and/or May 14, 2018.
There will be NO classes offered on the weeks of:
·         January 29 (teacher work day)
·          February 19 (teacher work day)
·         March 12 (Spring Break).
Please save these dates and plan accordingly.

BOOKS!

We are in need of 2nd and 3rd grade reading level books for the students to read during after care. Each day, we ensure the students complete their 20 minute reading requirement before playing. The students are growing tired of the book selection that we have and would LOVE to have new choices! If you have any books that perhaps your children have outgrown, please consider donating them to after school! We would be so appreciative.

As a friendly reminder to parents, registration for both programs (before and after school) is open all school-year. Students may begin attending either program at any time. Information about the programs can be found on our Voyager School website.

On Behalf of the care program staff, we would like to wish all of our families a very Happy Holidays!
Sincerely,
Latia Boney
