Voyage Academy had the opportunity to participate in the 2nd annual Utah Apple Crunch (aka The Greatest Crunch on Earth) with our staff and students during lunch. We supported a local farmer, Mountain Land Apples. Everyone was given an apple, was able to sample some yummy apple crisp and take pictures in our farm photo booth. #NSLW18, #UTAppleCrunch, #F2SMonth, #farmtoschool, #Crunchoff

Halloween is coming to Voyage Academy! October 31st is our Annual Halloween Celebration at Voyage Academy! Students are welcome and encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to school on Halloween. Please remember that students are not permitted to bring weapons with their costume. Masks will also NOT be allowed with Halloween costumes. Minimal face paint is allowed as long as it is not distracting, gory, or scary. For the safety of our students all students need to be able to be identified while at school. Any costume which will prevent a student from being able to be easily identified will not be allowed. Our Annual HALLOWEEN Parade will begin at 9:00 AM and parents and families are invited to attend. Both AM and PM kindergarten students will attend school from 8:25 to 10:25 AM to allow them to participate in our Halloween Parade. School will be dismissed at 1:00 PM on Halloween for all other students (grades 1-6). Please plan accordingly.
We will have NO SCHOOL on Thursday, November 1st. Please plan accordingly.
We are noticing a growing number of students who are accumulating excessive absences and/or tardies. Please remember that attendance is a top priority at Voyage Academy. Voyage Academy is a school of Expeditionary Learning and most of what your student will learn during the school day can NOT be made up with homework. Students are expected to arrive on-time, with required materials, ready to learn. The law requires that students attend school 96% of the time. Utah Code Ann.853A-11-101 states that “a person having control of a minor between six and eighteen years of age shall send the minor to a public or private school.” As a parent or guardian, it is your lawful responsibility to ensure that your student attends school consistently, regularly and punctually. We recognize that illness will happen. Please keep your students home if they are ill. If your student will not be at school please make sure you email/call the front office or email your student's teacher by 9:00 AM.
