  • Dr. Gereboff’s Head Notes - From our Students’ Eyes
    Teachers have the privilege and the opportunity to experience one of the greatest gifts of parenthood – that of viewing the world through children’s eyes. As we engage the world with our students and our children we see things that we may have missed in our own childhood and we rediscover things that we have long forgotten...

  • Principal's Proud Moments
    Over the past month, students in the seventh grade have diligently been writing original poetry. Last Monday, students performed their poems in a Poetry Slam, a contest where students perform their poems with feelings and dramatic flare...

Wornick To-Do List

The school relies on your support to maintain the personalized education your children receive. We are grateful for your dedication.

  • Wornick Scholastic Book Fair
    Thank you so much for all the support around the book fair this week. We had a fabulous week of sales and the excitement around literacy was awesome!

    Order books and they will be shipped for free to school.

  • Lunch Box Reminder
    Please remember not to send any GLASS containers to school with your children. This includes water bottles and "tupperware" style. The students are so eager to play at lunch/snack they often toss their bags onto the cement. This makes for a dangerous scenario the next time they open them.

  • 7th Grade Tzedakah Project
    Our 7th Graders are selling Shabbat Candles every Friday before & after Kabbalat Shabbat! They are $5 for a pair of two candles. They will be individually packaged and very nice easy way to get a pair of candles for the night. There are five different colors! (not just the color in the picture).

  • Registration for the JDS5K is OPEN!
    This year's race is on Sunday, May 3. The fee is $20, but this does not come without some new additions to the race.
