From the Managing Director's Desk, Jan. 26, 2020

Good Afternoon, 


It was another busy week on campus! We hope you had a great week and that your students are ready to learn on Monday.

Some very important dates coming up so please mark your calendars and join us for the upcoming EXPO meeting (info below), fundraiser for the Arts (info below) and a school wide safety training.

Hello Elementary School Families, 

It has been a busy week and several students and staff have been sick with a cold or virus.  The warm weather left us and brought in a windy, artic cold unlike anything we are accustomed to in the south.  

Voyager Academy Middle School News, Jan. 27, 2020

Hello Middle School Families, 
Thanks to all of you for putting forth much effort and energy to ensure your child/children get to school on time.  It really makes a difference when your child is in class when the teacher begins teaching. Remember, students need to be in their classroom before the 8:15 tardy bell rings. Instruction begins immediately after the tardy bell rings.

Good Afternoon, 

As a school system, we are committed to creating and sustaining a comprehensive, coordinated effort to improve the overall safety and well-being of our students, educators and administrators. 

To do this, we believe this must involve community-wide programs and initiatives involving parents, teachers, administrators, local law enforcement, mental health & wellness professionals and elected officials to take meaningful action to protect our students. 

Voyager Academy Elementary School News, Jan. 19, 2020

Hi!
We experienced extremely warm weather conditions and a lot of rain this week.  I hope you will remember to check the lost and found to retrieve winter coats and jackets if your child has lost any garments.  Next Friday, a non-profit organization will pick up any unclaimed items from our school. 

Voyager Academy Middle School News, Jan. 19, 2020


Hello Middle School Families, 
It was a busy week at the middle school!  It was obvious there was a big change in the weather. I think our students were thinking spring had arrived.  Please remind the students to stay focused, complete their work and turn in their work in order to receive credit.

Good Afternoon, 

Welcome back to a new year! Hope your children had a wonderful week back as I know we all did!

Hi!
Happy New Year and welcome back to school.  We quickly adjusted our mind set and clocks and are rolling right along after our nice, long relaxing break.
