Voyager Academy Care (after/before school) Program News, December 16, 2018


Care Program updates

 **As a friendly reminder, there will be no after care on Wednesday, December 19, so please plan to retrieve your student(s) at the appropriate school dismissal time. 


Say NO to Drugs, and Bullying!
I’m excited to announce a new initiative for the students who participate in after school. On Mondays, we will educate students on bullying, teach about the dangers of drug/alcohol use, and encourage positive language and healthy behaviors amongst students and their peers. 
Insight Human Services is the name of the company that we are partnering with to provide our students with this service.  The program is very similar to the D.A.R.E. Program initiative that circulated schools in the 90s. The curriculum spans from Kindergarten to 5th grade. The sessions are only 30 mins long, and students seem to enjoy.  Fourth and fifth grade students have already completed the course. I’m always looking for different ways to enhance our students socially, emotionally, and academically, so this is just a start. I will include an update to families in our weekly newsletter.

Students are continuing to enjoy their time after school. Students are able to complete homework, get extra help with subjects, and socialize with their friends. Many of our staff go the extra mile to provide fun academic enrichment activities for our students.

Enrichments
Dear Parents of Enrichment students, 

I'm writing to give you the parent visitation schedule for students who take enrichment classes on Mondays and Wednesdays. If your student(s) take(s) classes on Wednesday, you will be permitted to attend class with your student Monday, December 17, since we have early dismissal on Wednesday, December 19. Coach Holden, the basketball instructor, is at another school on Mondays, so she will be unable to attend. 

 **As a friendly reminder, there will be no after care on Wednesday, December 19, so please plan to retrieve your student(s) at the appropriate school dismissal time. 

Kind regards,

Latia Boney
