Thank you Mrs. Jordan
Today was Mrs. Jordan’s last day before going on her maternity leave. Mrs. Jordan has decided to stay at home with her baby and will not be returning to Voyager. We want to extend our best wishes and a huge thank you for all of her work at Voyager over these last two years. Arrivederci Jennifer!
Garden of Greatness
Congratulations to the Students of the Month! Their teachers chose these students because they exemplified what it means to be tolerant. They include everyone and treat ALL their classmates with respect. Good Job Voyagers!
This month we will be teaching our students to become more independent. We want them to use grit and accomplish their goals all by themselves.
Make sure you check out the New Box Top Challenge Board in the first floor hall! The contest runs until February 28th so keep sending in those Box Tops.
Save the date: the annual Hot Dog Picnic is scheduled for March 13th.
College of Charleston STEM Field Trip
Our third, fourth, fifth and sixth graders attended a field trip today to the College of Charleston to learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. They also got to see the Lady Cougars take on the William and Mary Tribe in a basketball game. The kids had a great time. Surrounded by students from across Charleston County, our children stood out for their enthusiastic participation and exemplary behavior. Our bus drivers also commented on how well behaved and polite our children were on the trip.
Thanks to everyone who chaperoned today’s trip. It was great to have so many Dads in attendance. You can check out some pictures from today’s trip on our Facebook page.
School Choice Registration Update – Charleston County School District will open the Choice/Magnet application process on February 11, 2019 and will close on March 11, 2019.
Hurricane Make Up Day
Reminder – Carolina Voyager will be open on President’s Day, Monday, February 18th to make up a school day missed because of the hurricanes.
Kerri and I are heading up to Myrtle Beach this weekend to visit my parents. It’s a shame the weather is cooling off for the next few days. I’ve gotten used to the 70+ degree days that we enjoyed this week. At least it looks like winter may be gone until next year. It’s snowing in Texas today! Better them than us….
I hope everyone has a great weekend and I’ll see you in the car loop on Monday.
