Dear Viking Families,
Welcome back to School and to our weekly newsletter! Thank you all for your patience and your support opening this year with adjusted times and traffic patterns to ensure the safety of our students!  We hope all your children had a great first week and are ready for another wonderful year of learning and growing!

Dear VAES Families,
We have had a great first week.  The only “hiccups” have been during afternoon carline.  I have been amazed by how kind, flexible, and empathetic our families have been to all of the staff.  Thank you!! Also, a BIG “Thank you” to the wonderful parents that have donated their time and energy helping with carline in the afternoons!!  We truly appreciate you!!

Dear VAMS Families,

It has been a terrific week at Voyager Middle School.  I’ve had the opportunity to be in your child’s class more than once this week.  Each time I visited the classrooms or the elective classes, I was amazed with the learning that was taking place.  Mrs. Steelman had students reading, Mrs. Lecky had students working on their multiplication, Mr. Credle was teaching math, Mrs. Cline was working on an experiment that created an environment in which the students really had to problem solve, Mrs. Higdon had students determining which information was true and which was false, and Mrs. Thompson had students preparing to perform.

Dear Voyager Vikings,
I hope you are enjoying your summer vacation. It is hard to believe that we are only a few weeks away from getting back into the school year!

Voyager Academy Elementary School News, July 17, 2018


Dear VAES Families:

It is hard to believe that school will begin in a few weeks!!  I hope everyone is having a relaxing and fun summer!! I have included a lot of VERY IMPORTANT information regarding classroom teacher assignments, Open House dates and times, Kindergarten staggered start, and school hours.  Please read this entire email.  I would also encourage you to save it so that you have it to refer back to later, if needed.  I have included the links for the Kindergarten - Third Grade Supply Lists. They are also on our website under the tab Parent Resources - Documents and Forms.

Voyager Academy Middle School News, July 17, 2018

Dear Viking Families,

Lending Library
EXPO is pleased to announce the start of a parent & teacher lending library to provide resources on ways to raise, support, and educate children with different abilities. The lending library will be housed upstairs in the Hock House, and already has books to be donated about differentiating in the classroom, educating gifted students, parenting resilient children, etc. Parents and teachers can be added to the library system to allow them to check out books. In honor of Ms. Melinda Chambers, Voyager Academy's EC Director, and the important role she has played in the lives and education of so many of our students and children, the EXPO Board is naming the lending library in memory of Ms. Chambers' father. If you would like to make book and/or monetary donations to the lending library, or have any questions, please contact Tracy Pennuto at TKPenn@aol.com.

Dear VAMS Families,

What a busy week!  We had our Awards Celebration on Monday night followed by our Reading EOG on Wednesday and Math EOG on Thursday.  We only had 3 make-up tests due to student absences. That’s fantastic! We also had all students in the building on time and ready to begin the EOG process. It really made a difference.

Dear Viking Families,
Each year we send out climate surveys to measure how we are doing and what we can do to improve. Attached are links for the family surveys. They ask you about your insight into how your children are learning in the classroom. If you have multiple children you can take the survey more than once to represent your different experiences as it asks you what grade your child is in.  our staff will take surveys this week and the students grades 5-12 will also take climate surveys so we can see trends across all stakeholders. Please take a moment of your day to celebrate our program and share feedback for improvement! https://eprovesurveys.advanc-ed.org/surveys/#/action/68058/38245
