September 6: Voyager Academy High School Daily Announcements 

  • Attention freshmen! Please wear your freshmen orientation t-shirts to school on Monday. Any student who has not received a t-shirt will be provided with one. On Monday during Advisory, all freshmen will meet in the gym for a freshman class photo before breaking into smaller groups to start our Freshmen Anchor Program. 
  • Yearbooks for the 2018-2019 school year are now on sale at the lowest price of the year, $55. Go to by the September 28th to reserve a book at this low price. 
  • There will be a Red Cross Blood drive on September 11, 2018 in the Commons. Sign up at with code "Voyager". Contact Jordan King for more information.
  • Did you know...the 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (CDC) indicates that, nationwide, 19% if students grades 9-12 report being bullied on school property in the 12 months preceeding the survey. VAHS would like to stand up to bullying, and you can too. This month, help us celebrate "Start with Hello" month here at Voyager. Make sure to take the time to talk to someone new, someone eating alone, or someone that just looks they could use an encouraging word. You never know how much a simple "hello" can change someone's day. Also, make sure to stop by the C hall and leave an inspirational "hello" greeting on the banner.
  • Lacrosse practice has been cancelled today.
  • Last year we did the refugee drive and the winning grade was the sophmores (now Juniors). We are going to serve pancakes for breakfast for the Juniors. It will be in the commons at  8:15 am to 8:50 am on Tuesday the 11th of September. Sorry for the late prize!
