  • Dr. Gereboff’s Head Notes - Personal Stories
    If someone asked you to tell a story about yourself, how would you answer? And if that same person asked you why do we tell people our stories, what would you say?...

  • Kesher Korner
    There is a great line in Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" that I always think about around Passover: "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; None but ourselves can free our minds."...

Wornick To-Do List

  • Calendar Reminder
    Passover/Spring break begins on Monday April 14th and school resumes on Wednesday April 23rd. We wish all of our families a very Happy Passover!

  • Hot Lunch Server Needed
    We are looking for a Friday lunch server that can start on April 25th. There are only 6 Fridays left. It is one of the most fun days as it is Mexican and the parents all share in the fiesta when they are done serving! Ole!

Seen @Wornick this week: PTO's Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week has treated our staff very well, our 8th graders shared their Stick Figure Time story from their visit to Israel and some got a little silly, as has Mr. King during morning tefillah. The annual Kindergarten & 1st grade Seder was very enjoyable Wednesday morning.
