Head Notes



As we return to school with air washed clean and hearts warmed by a Thanksgiving meal shared with family and friends, I think of the vital role that gratitude has in Jewish prayer and tradition. Perhaps most striking is the morning prayer that we say together each morning in school T'fillah, modeh ani which means I thank you. Beginning each day in gratitude is tremendously powerful as we humbly acknowledge the profound impact of others. Whether we are thanking God, our parents, our teachers, or our children, we value the vital connection we have one with another.

At Wornick, I have found so much for which I am grateful as I rise each morning. I am thankful for the opportunity to guide a school community so dedicated to the education and growth of each child. I am thankful for the professionalism, expertise, and caring of our teachers along with the enthusiasm, inquisitiveness, and joy of our children. I am thankful for our generous donors and wise trustees who ensure that we are able to offer the very best education to our students.

With the Thanksgiving holiday behind us, I challenge each of us not only to begin each morning in thanks but to keep the spirit of gratitude in the forefront as we navigate each day.
