Dear Wornick Community,

Yesterday, our last day of school for the 2019-20 school year, was a day full of emotions. This school year certainly challenged all of us in the last 3 months, and I am so proud of our entire community who rose to the challenge and demonstrated incredible resilience. Our professional community, our parents, our students, our PTO, everyone, truly contributed to the strength of this community. At our final event, the car parade, we were all overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude to be able to see people in person, even if they were in masks and 6 feet away. Thank you so much to all of you who came out to it, and thank you so much to the PTO who helped organize it. 

We are excited to share some fun things happening this summer: 

Online Summer Camp Options

Online Summer Camp registration is officially OPEN! Please visit https://www.wornickjds.org/for-our-families/summer-camp to check out the offerings which include classes for K-2, Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-8. Please note that these classes are designated by the academic year your child just finished, so if your child just completed K, look for classes for K. If you child just completed 2nd grade, look for classes for Grade 2. There are three tabs on the registration page: Schedule, Teachers and Class Descriptions. To begin, please click on the blue "Registration" link on the right. 

There are 4 one-week sessions offered beginning June 22. There are many options to choose from: A Bug's Life or Art and Authors with Mrs. Wagshul, Around the World Art with Ginger, Creative Writing or Yoga with Ms. Bogoslovsky, Intro to Theater, Music Exploration and so much more! If you have any questions, please email Esther Gillette at egillette@wornickjds.org.

Summertime Kabbalat Shabbat
Just like many of you, our community events were something we greatly cherished during this time of physical distancing. So, we are going to continue having Kabbalat Shabbat on Fridays at 2:30pm from June 12 - August 14. We will send Zoom links each week in advance and hope to see you there! 

Community Art Project
When you come to drop off and pick up items from school per the Sign Up Schedule starting June 11 (if you haven't signed up for a slot, please do so), you will also receive a bag that has the supplies to participate in a community art project. Directions will be included in the bag. Students, teachers, and staff will receive 3 squares of thick paper to decorate as directed. The art piece will be made up of those colored squares, which represent the Zoom squares that we are all too familiar with. Once done, the squares will be turned into the school on dates to be announced. Ginger will put the squares together to form a heart as depicted below on the right, in the style of the piece on the left, and it will be hung in the Ulam Gadol.

Heart Artwork Project

So be sure to pick up your Community Art project bags during your pick up/drop off exchange visit. If you have any questions about the project, please email Annie O'Donnell at aodonnell@wornickjds.org.

We wish you all a very wonderful summer!

In partnership,
