Thank You Voss Students & Families for an Incredible Year!

Dear Voss Students and Parents,

Words cannot express how thankful we are of you and your great spirit and support this school year. Opening and being a part of a new school was a great adventure for all of us and we hope you will always remember the important role you played in setting our foundation. We wish our 8th grade students the absolute best and look forward to seeing our 6th and 7th graders in August. Below are a few resources and dates for your review as you prepare for the fall.

Have a wonderful summer and never forget, Soar Eagles, Soar!
