A Lifetime of Discovery

Here, at Wornick, education is active and engaging whether we are learning about the New Year through the many circles and cycles that surround us or flowers through plant anatomical drawings. Our students wonder and discover; the questions and projects that result provide the many paths to innumerable answers which, in turn, inevitably lead to more questions. In their Jewish Identity Projects, our 8th graders are discovering themselves as they form connections with their heritage, their spirituality, and their many experiences. Education is not static; our students are not passive bystanders. We turn on its head the Classical model of learning which emerges from the roots of the word educate. In this approach the teacher leads (duc) the student out of (e) the darkness of ignorance into the light of knowledge. For us, education is more closely aligned with its meaning in Hebrew chinukh which includes the idea of inauguration or dedication. Education is a beginning, a first step to a life-time of discovery. As we dedicate the new year to our own growth and aspirations, we will continue to support our students with a school community wholly dedicated to each child and each child's learning.
