Chavurot Program

A unique way that Wornick builds a respectful community for the entire school is through our Chavurot program. Chavurah means a group of friends in Hebrew, and this program provides leadership opportunities for older children and a way for younger children to create meaningful connections with older students. The entire school is divided into twenty-two chavurot (friendship groups) each containing a representative from each grade (TK-8) and a teacher. Children remain in their same chavurah throughout their years at Wornick. Each month, the groups meet to work together on an engaging, hands-on activity, such as a design challenge, service learning opportunity, or collaborative project. Each grade takes a turn leading the project, so each month a different member of the Chavurah has the opportunity to lead the group.
