With the 7th Grade Tzedakah project in full swing, the Wornick Trustees and guests were thrilled to have a presentation from four 7th graders on the scope of the project and their individual areas of interest. We are very proud of both this project for what its expression of our community's values AND of our students who spoke with confidence and poise about their commitment to service. We were all inspired by their presentation.
Additionally, Roger Feigelson and Roxanne Cohen, the Campaign Chair for the North Peninsula of the Jewish Community Federation and Director of the NPJCF, presented to the Trustees on the commitment of Federation to Jewish education and to Wornick. We are thankful for the continued support of the Federation for our school, our tuition assistance fund and our Israel education programs.
The remainder of the Board meeting featured an informative discussion of the Development Strategy and progress to date. A number of our classes are close to 100% participation and the school is over 50% participation for the first time in the history of our annual campaign. The spring gala on May 23rd honoring our teachers will be a great celebration of another year at Wornick. We also discussed the profile for new Trustees joining the Board at the end of this school year.
We hope you will join us for our next Board meeting - rescheduled to March 24, 2010 at 7pm to adjust for Trustees attending the Washington DC AIPAC Policy Conference.
