Great tips for your Spring Break road trip! http://www.actionforhealthykids.org/component/content/article/39-step-3-challenges/1908-spring-in-spring-break MUSC Boeing Center for Children's Wellness
Please share this information with your staff. We are looking for K-12 teachers to join Agee Films for a tuition free two week teacher institute sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities at the University of North Carolina Asheville. The Power of Place: Land and Peoples in Appalachia will explore the environmental history of the Appalachian Mountains. Teachers who attend the institute will receive a $2100 stipend as well as optional CEUs. An interdisciplinary institute, The Power of Place: Land and Peoples in Appalachia, will examine how landscape shapes culture and in turn how humans shape the land, with the Appalachian region as our case study. Please help us by distributing this information as far and wide as you can to any educators interested in professional development. Summer 2018 Opportunity for Educators to Explore Appalachia Asheville, NC 2017, Nov. 1 –Agee Films, in partnership with the University of North Carolina Asheville, is looking for K-12 teachers to join us for a tution free two week teacher institute sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Power of Place: Land and Peoples in Appalachia, held from July 8 to July 20 in Asheville, will explore the environmental history of the Appalachian Mountains using an interdisciplinary approach. Teachers who attend the institute will receive a $2100 stipend as well as possible CEU credit. The Power of Place: Land and Peoples in Appalachia, will use original source materials along with film, music, art, science, literature and the mountains themselves to examine how landscapes shape culture and in turn how humans shape the land. The Power of Place: Land and Peoples in Appalachia will be open to thirty K-12 teachers. Using the experience of Appalachia, the institute will demonstrate how environmental history presents new questions to interrogate past events, encourages an interdisciplinary approach to history, and presents an excellent opportunity for team teaching in the classroom. The format of the experience will include becoming a member of a vibrant and engaged learning community. Participants will attend lectures by leading scholars and by some of the region’s most accomplished authors. They will engage in classroom discussions, analyze primary sources, complete reading assignments, watch documentary films, visit historic sites, and develop curricular materials using the ideas and approaches explored in the institute. The institute is organized chronologically into two one-week sessions exploring different human societies in the Appalachians and their relationships to the mountains. We look at how each of the peoples who came to the region were shaped by the land they encountered and, in turn, how their cultural assumptions and their technological tools influenced the life they made for themselves. Participants will consider the Appalachian Mountains as they come under successive groups of human societies—each with different ideas about the relationship of humans to nature and what constitutes the best use of the land. Weekdays will include faculty presentations, guest speakers including noted authors including Crystal Wilkinson, Ron Rash, John Inscoe, and other renowned experts, field trips, small group seminars and group sharing sessions. Our faculty are deeply committed to engaging with participant scholars, both in and out of the classroom. Our past attendees have found the institute reinvigorated their own learning and inspired new enthusiasm for their classroom teaching. One participant commented, “… helped me see power of using primary sources in my classrooms … the institute was a veritable who’s who in Appalachian studies … one of the best experiences I have had since becoming a teacher”. Please visit the following websites for additional information: http://appalachiafilm.org/neh & http://www.neh.gov/divisions/education/summer-programs . Completed application materials must be postmarked no later than March 1, 2018. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by March 28, 2018.

The Food Drive total is in..... we donated 386 LBS of food to the Lowcountry Food Bank!!! So proud of our school! Way to go Voyagers! I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
Anyone know the name and number of the Sensa who is teaching karate this afternoon? I tried calling the karate school directly in Mt. P and they gave me the wrong name and number, since they are not sure who it is that will be teaching at CVCS. I lost the brochure...😭😭
Can you wear the voyager T-shirt during the weekday or just fridays?
For the kindergarten pillow/blanket requirement - are character pillows allowed? We have an emoji pillow that he likes. Just wondering if it is acceptable to send.
Does the uniform material matter - like are collared active wear shirts acceptable? Thanks!
Are supply lists out yet?

Carolina Voyager Charter School is a Kindergarten-7th Grade school that opened in 2014 in downtown Charleston and relocated to West Ashley in 2016. We will add 8th grade in the 2020-2021 school year.

We have moved to 721 Wappoo Road as of July 2016. Carolina Voyager Charter School will successfully launch young explorers in kindergarten through grade 8 for success in high school with a unique learning methodology. The school will implement national best practices of technology learning with teacher-led instruction in a school culture that also nurtures social and emotional learning needed for students’ 21st century journey. The classroom technology will consist of internet-based or server-based software aligned to the state curriculum standards and differentiated for the individual student.

Mission: The mission of the Carolina Voyager School is to successfully launch young explorers on a life long journey of acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to develop and implement solutions for the world around them through a student-focused learning community with expeditionary educators, engaged families, and extraordinary use of technology.

Today is Voyager Field Day! Let's see those Orcas in action! 🏃🏾‍♀

Last, but certainly not least, let's hear it for our 6th and 7th grade teachers!

Our 4th and 5th Grade teachers lead the way as our students become more independent thinkers, and move from learning to basics to learning about the world. Let's show them our appreciation in the comments below!

We want to give a huge “HAPPY NURSE’S DAY” shout out to our Nurse Ann! Thank you for keeping our students safe and healthy while we are at school! 🩺🩹

Our second and third grade teachers help instill a foundation that will benefit our children for all of their years in school! Thank you for all that you do! Please share your appreciation in the comments below!

Our Kindergarten and First Grade teachers have the important job of educating and guiding our youngest Voyagers! Please share your appreciation for these teachers below!

Let's kick off Teacher Appreciation Week with a shout out to our Special Area Teachers! Drop your posts of appreciation below!

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! The PTO usually plans for a week of special recognition and treats for our amazing teachers. Due to social distancing and the closure of the schools we are not able to show our teachers our love and appreciation in person, but this year we may have an even greater understanding of the important and tough jobs they have!

Throughout the week we ask you to share your appreciation for our teachers here! Each day we will highlight a different group of teachers! Please share pictures, funny observations from your children, and anything else that will let the teachers know just how much they mean to all of us, and how much we appreciate all they have done and continue to do!

Our Cafeteria Staff are true heroes! Thank you for working so hard to ensure the children of West Ashley continue to have breakfast and lunch each day while we are out of school!#schoollunchheroday

As many of you may know, our amazing Cafeteria Staff members have been serving lunches from our school since this all started. They are part of an amazing system that is in place to ensure every child in Charleston County has access to breakfast and lunch.

The CVCS PTO would like to show them how much their hard work means to everyone! This Friday, May 1, is School Lunch Hero Day! The site is open from 11 AM - 1 PM, but we think a timed parade would be amazing! If you are available please consider joining the parade by lining up in the rear car loop at 12:45 PM! Bring signs of appreciation, blast some great music, and share socially distanced shouts of thanks!

We are also collecting donations to provide this amazing team with gift cards as a small token of our appreciation. There are six Lunch Heroes working at the CVCS site. If you would like to contribute towards gifts cards you may send money through Paypal to [email protected]

Thank you for helping us recognize their hard work!

Kindergarten is hatching eggs, virtually, from Ms. Walchesky's kitchen! We will check in each week to see the progress of the eggs. See the note from Ms. Walchesky below about this project. We can't wait to meet our new Voyager chicks!

"We received an incubator from a DonorsChoose project I created. After Spring break, we started the journey of hatching eggs. Every week, the students and I have zoom meetings where they can observe the eggs to see if any changes have happened. Hopefully within, the next week or so we will have some chicks starting to hatch. We are really excited and can’t wait to see our chicks when they hatch."

UPDATED: Keep those resumes coming! We are still seeking qualified teaching candidates for 1st Grade and Special Education. Certified educators interested in being considered should email their resume to [email protected].

REMINDER: Lottery results for the 2020-2021 school year went out on April 17th. If you would like to accept your child's seat at Carolina Voyager please remember to log in to the School Choice Lottery site and accept your child's seat by Friday, May 8th at 11 pm.
