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.

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?

Carolina Voyager Charter School is a Kindergarten-8th Grade school that opened in 2014 in downtown Charleston and relocated to West Ashley in 2016.

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.

The Science labs continue in Middle School this week. 8th grade demonstrated excellent teamwork building roller coasters to learn about acceleration, velocity and calculating speed!

Mrs. Drum's class planted a community garden last week. They planted tomatoes, zucchini, beets, turnips, butternut squash, and green beans. They will be learning about the life cycle of plants and what they need to survive. They are looking forward to growing many yummy vegetables to share with their school family!

Here is a throw back from a couple weeks ago of some of our Middle School Scientists in action. The students determined what factors would make an alkaline-seltzer tablet dissolve the fastest using the scientific method. 👩🏽‍🔬🧑🏻‍🔬🧪

Please see the note from Nurse Ann regarding the 7th grade DTap vaccination:

Our school start date is right around the corner(YAY!) and with that, proof of Tdap vaccine for those entering 7th grade is due. These students must present proof of vaccine PRIOR to start of school year or, per SCDHEC guidelines, they will have to be excluded from school. Please note this also applies to our 7th graders who are starting virtually. You may email me with questions at [email protected] and I will do my best to be of service. I can not wait to see our students again! ❤️ Nurse Ann
