May 28, 2014 Newsletter


Thanks to everyone for attending Wornickfest—we hope that everyone had as much fun as we did!! We raised more money than ever before, which will help fund all of our events and programs for the school year. We were so happy to see everyone having fun, and equally happy to see some of our new Wornick families attending, getting acclimated for the 2014-2015 school year.

We know that the end of school is hectic, and really appreciate your continued support.

In this Edition:

1. Special Thanks

2. I won a prize, how do I get it?

3. Chai Hours


1. Special Thanks:  We have so many people to thank for their help with Wornickfest, including (but not limited to):

Mixwell Entertainment, for providing DJ Services. Max does Bar and Bat Mitzvahs like no one else, and graciously donated his time to our event. If you are planning an event, we cannot recommend anyone more.

Wild Blackberry Sophisticated Tees, for outfitting some of the PTO Board and our DJ during the event. We were looking good! For more information, contact Tara Bantwal, Wornick Mom and future PTO Treasurer. She can hook you up!

Piazzas Fine Foods, who donated all of the food for the event. Piazzas has been so generous to our Wornick community, and is now offering a whole line of Kosher products as well as Kosher meat orders for those that are regular Piazzas shoppers. Please support them as they continue to support us.

Joel Abramovitz, Dan Finkel. Nicole Haire, Adam King and Alex Maslow for braving the dunk tank. The kids LOVED it. You are all rock stars in our book!

Rachel Perelman, for (as always) feeding us well, and with love. There was not an empty stomach in the crowd!

All of the amazing donors and volunteers, for making this event our best yet! We could not have done it without you, and really appreciate your help.

2. I won a prize, how do I get it? If you did not pick up your raffle prize during the event, you should have since received an email from Esther notifying you of your prize and that you can come pick up in the office. Please contact her for more information! For those that won Wild Blackberry Tees, you will work directly with Tara Bantwal to choose your preferred style and size. For any prizes that are unclaimed as of June 10, 2014, we will treat them as a donation back to PTO.

3. Chai Hours: We are at the end of the school year, with few opportunities for Chai Hours left. If you have not met your 18 hour requirement, please contact us at and let us know. We will see if there are other opportunities at school over the next two weeks that will help you meet your goal. If you do not meet your 18 hour goal, you will receive an invoice over the summer.
