We have had a busy and fun week at Voyager Elementary!  Be sure to order your ES yearbooks by April 15, 2018 to guarantee your student receives a yearbook! Yearbooks are now $28 each and can be ordered online at Strawbridge.net.  Use the school code 110322. After April 15, no additional book orders will be accepted. We do not order extra copies, so we will not be able to guarantee extra books will be available, if they are not ordered online by the April 15th deadline.  Please contact Leslie Jewell (leslieljewell@gmail.com) if you have any questions. Don't miss out - Order today!!

Voyager Academy Middle School News, March 24, 2019

Dear VAMS Families,
This is a very important time of year as End of Grade tests in grades 4-8 will soon be upon us.  Our teachers are planning terrific lessons for our students so we need our students to come to school and to be on time.  This is not the time of year to take trips and have your child miss days of school. Each day your child misses school he or she misses direct instruction provided by the teacher.  It is also important that students are on time. When students arrive late, they are already behind! Please help your child by having them to school and on time!

Dear VAMS Families,
Even thought this was a short week, it was full of learning and full of fun!


Our students and staff celebrated Spirit Days.  Wednesday was Wacky Tacky Day. Thursday was Twin Day and Friday was true School Spirit Day.  We had our annual Student – Staff basketball games (girls and boys). Students had the opportunity to attempt a mid-court shot and/or a 3 point shot.  Our teachers played very hard and scored points but our girls’ basketball team and boys’ basketball team were determined to outscore the teachers and they did!  Based on the cheering and laughter, all students had a great Friday afternoon. Thanks to Student Council for coordinating and to Mrs. McKenna and Landon Lawrence for serving as MC.
