Carolina Voyager Parent Newsletter – Year 5 Edition 2 August 9, 2018
Hang in there parents! Only one more week until the new school year kicks off! Summer has likely flown by a little quicker for me than maybe for you, but we are almost there. We are busily gearing up for the first day of the 2018-2019 school year, scheduled for Monday morning, August 20th. Last night we welcomed our new families at our Orientation Meeting. Prior to the first day, we are hosting our annual Sneak a Peek at Your Seat Open House on August 16th. We hope to see all of our children (and parents) at this event, connecting with friends, meeting our new members, and finding out who they will be sitting next to this year. This is a drop in event. Stop by whenever you are able during the event. We will be posting preliminary class lists a little earlier this year than in the past. Lists will be posted on our front doors on the morning of August 13th.
What’s coming up? Wednesday, August 13th – Class Lists Posted at 10:00 on entry doors Thursday, August 16th – Sneak A Peek at Your Seat Open House – 4:30-6:30 p.m. Monday, August 20th – First Day of School – Yea!

Welcome to our Newest Staff Member
Please join me in welcoming our newest staff member to our Carolina Voyager School Community. At this time we are fully staffed, raring and ready to go!
Alli Debrow – Grades 5 and 6 Social Studies and Science.
Alli joins us with years of teaching experience in public and private schools. We are thrilled that she is joining us for the next stage in her career. Look for her bio and our other new staff members in my first weekly newsletter.
Car Loop Procedures and Etiquette
Want to know how to get to and through the car loop each morning and afternoon? Check out this turn-by-turn video that shows how to get from Savannah Highway to the back parking lot and through our car loop.
Please follow the directions of our car loop staff, be patient, and most importantly, be kind to one another. While the first couple of days of afternoon pick up may be a bit lengthy, we will work the kinks out quickly and be a smoothly running machine in no time at all. Remember, we are individually connecting close to 300 kids with their parents in their cars each afternoon.
From Our PTO
The PTO Membership Drive for the 2018-2019 school year is underway. You can register at the following link. On this link, you can also prepay for Dress Down Fridays for the entire school year.
The first PTO meeting will be held on September 4th at 5:30 p.m. here on our campus. All families are invited and encouraged to attend PTO meetings throughout the year. Family Night at Jason’s Deli
On September 5th, our PTO is hosting a Family Night at Jason’s Deli on Savannah Highway in the Harris Teeter’s shopping center. The PTO will receive a percentage of all sales, pick up and dine in, from 5:00-9:30 p.m. Please let the cashier know that you are from Carolina Voyager Charter School when you pay for your meal. We hope to see many of our families at Jason’s Deli on the 5th.
That’s it for now. I will begin sending out my weekly newsletters again beginning on Friday, August 24th. Remember to keep your emails updated in order to receive electronic communications throughout the school year. I am looking forward to the start of my 38th school year and most importantly, another outstanding year for our children in partnership with you.
