Beginning the Monday November 19th, we will have the Voyage Academy Holiday Giving Tree up in our foyer. This year we are putting the tree up early so that those who would like to get a jump on their holiday shopping can do so. We would like to invite each of you to pick an ornament from our Giving Tree. Our tree will consist of various needs and wants of Voyage families in need of extra help this Holiday season. Each ornament specifies a gift to buy for an individual or family in need. We ask that parents come in with your children to choose an ornament off the tree. DO NOT have your children pick an ornament without an adult present. Once you choose an ornament, fill out the appropriate information, and turn it in to the office. All donations are due NO LATER than the end of school (1:30 PM) Friday, December 7th. If you take an ornament, PLEASE complete the entire donation request shown on that ornament. Please do not wrap the gifts. We appreciate your willingness to give this Holiday season.
Tuesday, November 20th (Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving Break) will be a short day at Voyage Academy. School will be dismissed at 1:00 for those students in grades 1-6. AM Kindergarten will come to school from 8:25 AM to 10:25 AM. PM Kindergarten will come to school from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Please plan accordingly.

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

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.
