From the Managing Director's Desk, February 24, 2019


Dear Viking Families,
WOW! What a fantastic night with friends and families on Saturday at our inaugural Silent Aucion and Gala. I can’t say enough thanks to Mr. Eisenson and Mrs. McKenna for their hard work and coordination and all the students in MS student council and all their many volunteers. We hope this is the first of many wonderful nights that support Voyager.

Dear VAES Families,

On Friday, our Kindergarteners had their Animals Project Celebration.  Wow!!!
Our Kindergarten students demonstrated their ability to compare and contrast different types of the same animal by studying various sub-groups of that animal.  Students were broken into animal subgroups within their classrooms to become experts on an animal they chose.  The animals studied were: Bears, Birds, Cats, Dogs, & Lizards. They displayed this knowledge as “experts” in small groups by teaching families and other students about the animals they researched and studied and how their specific animal was alike or different from others in that animal family.  I loved how each class showed the steps and the processes that went into their project!  It truly brings me such joy to see the excitement and the hard work demonstrated by each student and their teachers and teacher assistants. Bravo, Kindergarten!!

Dear VAMS Families,

Short weeks are always very busy and productive.  This past week was no different. Our teachers wanted to get as much material taught as possible especially with two workdays and a delayed opening.  Our students came to school Wednesday ready to learn – even with a delayed opening! Great job by all!

Dear VAES Families,
Here is an important message from our PTO:
Voyager Staff/Teacher Appreciation week is a special time at Voyager where we pause for a moment to reflect on the enormous contributions that the staff members make for our children each day. We love them each and every day but we want to recognize their hard work and dedication, next week. Most importantly, each year we gift each staff member with gift cards, again a small token of appreciation. This will be done next Friday, February 15. Monetary donations can be made using this link https://squareup.com/store/voyager-academy-pto)  or send in gift cards with your student labeled "PTO Gift Card Giveaway." Please be on the lookout for emails from your class parents or sign-up genius requests. The PTO needs your help to make this event a success. 

Voyager Academy Middle School News, February 10, 2019
