Staffing Update

It is bittersweet that we announce that after 7 years of teaching math at Valor Voyager, Ms. Tey will be transitioning out of education and into a project management role. She is excited for this new career opportunity, and will also miss the Valor community and is deeply grateful for her time with her students. Her last day at Voyager will be Friday, May 6th. Starting  on Wednesday, Mr. Pratico who currently teaches Math RTI will be shadowing Ms. Tey, and take over full time on Monday, May 9th.

Family Visitor Policy

Due to the decrease of Covid cases in Davidson County, most restrictions at Valor have been removed. A few families have reached out about being onsite to eat meals with their student during the school day. This is permitted again like in prior years!

Lost and Found Items

There are lots of items in the lost and found which is in our front office. If your scholar is missing a jacket, water bottle, lunch box, or other item, please encourage them to check the lost and found! All items that are not claimed by the end of this week will be donated.

Support Valor’s Athletic and Fine Arts Programming in The Big Payback on May 4th and 5th (OR donate now)!

The Big Payback is a 24-hour event when Middle Tennessee comes together to contribute to the life-changing work of local nonprofit organizations. This year at Valor, we are focusing on two projects from our Athletics and FACE programming: new uniforms for middle school athletes and a portable stage! The new sets of uniforms will directly impact over 330 scholars, and replace sets of uniforms that are in need of a fresh set! Having new uniforms that fit and look nice will allow the students to arrive at games and competitions with a new level of confidence following the mantra, “Look Good, Feel Good, Play Good.” Our FACE programs have a portable stage at the very top of their wish list! A portable stage costs around $10,000-$12,000 and would be used in the gym or outdoor areas for various performances and events. Having a portable stage would reduce the impact on the gym floor and provide scholars with a performance space on campus, rather than always having to go off campus to a nearby venue! This would be a HUGE win for our Fine Arts programming.

Help us meet our $20,000 goal by contributing to Valor between May 4th at 6pm and May 6th at 6pm (or, make your donation early). 100% of your Big Payback gift will go towards supporting the Valor Fine Arts & Athletics programs!
