Hello Middle School Families, 
Wow, what a busy week!  We completed our first round of the NC Check Ins.  The students put forth much effort. Our Check Ins will provide our teachers with data that will help them determine areas or skills needing additional support or areas or skills that are strong areas for the students.  Information that we receive will be used during MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) time to provide support or acceleration to our students.

Good Morning, 

I would like to congratulate two more student athletes as they commit to play baseball in college:

Parents, please see the below invitation for you to join and attend our EXPO group. This group is to bring parents and community together in support of our students in the EC or AIG program. We want to hear from you and provide new and exciting ways to support our children and the program.

Hi!

This is the season to be thankful and grateful for all of our many blessings.  I have so many things to be thankful for and near the very top is our teachers and staff at the elementary school, our students and their families.  I hope you can stop and take a breath and look at the positives in your life and take time to be thankful. I am appreciative you for allowing us to serve your children. It is an honor to know you trust us with your most precious possession of all.   It is a true blessing to know them, to teach them and to see the light bulb come on when they learn something new. Our profession is hard and at the same time oh so rewarding.

Hi Voyager Middle School Families,

It's been a very busy week at Voyager Middle School! On Tuesday evening we celebrated our middle school athletes who participated in Fall Sports. Our student athletes were extremely successful but more importantly, they always showed great sportsmanship!  Great job, student athletes!

From the Voyager Academy Managing Director, Nov. 10, 2019

Good afternoon! 

The cool weather is finally here so please make sure your children have coats/sweaters for outdoor activities.  As you know, at this time, we will continue to follow the DPS weather plans for closures and delays as needed. We have seen some forecasts that predict snow in the next couple of weeks although we hope that we have a dry winter! If we need to delay, or close, our announcements will be sent out via mail, text reminder (If you have signed up) and we will also post it on WRAL alerts and our website.

Voyager Academy Elementary School News, Nov. 10, 2019



Hi!

Another very busy week for staff and students at Voyager.  We are all working hard teaching, learning, monitoring progress and make good decisions for each child.  We have continued viewing Istation during select Professional Development time, sent first trimester report cards home last Friday, placed students on Success Plans to ensure their success and our other daily tasks.  A teacher’s work is never done, and we have a great staff who works hard every day. I’m so grateful for them.

Voyager Academy Middle School News, Nov. 10, 2019


Dear VAMS Families,

First, I want to say THANK YOU for making my birthday on Friday a very special one!  The students created a banner and the majority of our students signed it one morning when I was at car line.  I appreciate all the emails, cards, kind words, hugs, delicious Banana Bread, Pumpkin Bread, flowers, lunch and I could go on and on! Your children certainly know how to make one feel special!  Again, thanks!

We have had a great fall sports season here at Voyager and it is not over yet. Our High School Cross Country teams both boys and girls will be competing in the state championships on Saturday 11/9 in Kernersville.  Best of luck to all our runners!  Our High School Soccer team will travel to play Cape Hatteras on Saturday as well in the second round of the state playoffs! We are very proud of all of our fall sports teams for all of the hard work and success we have had.

Dear Viking Families, 
As many of you may have heard, Laurie Whitnack, a TA in our elementary school has put Voyager on a new, national map!  Laurie was both a guest and a WINNER on The Wheel of Fortune last week! I know so many of our families and staff tuned in to watch her and we could not be more proud of Laurie and excited for her big night. 

Voyager Academy Elementary School News, Nov. 3, 2019



Hi ES Families!
Time Change This Weekend:
I hope you are as excited as I am about the time change coming up for us this weekend. Remember that the EST will FALL BACK from 2:00 AM on Sunday morning to 1:00 AM.  Hopefully, the new time will keep some of us from waking up or driving to school in the dark. At least, we gain one hour of precious time!

Dear VAMS Families,

Coming to you LIVE from New York City – it’s the Middle School Newsletter!
I wanted to make sure everyone received the middle school newsletter so I took the opportunity to visit the gorgeous New Your City library in order to complete my part of the weekly newsletter. The reason I’m in NY is to cheer on my brother as he is running 
In the New York City marathon!
