If you have been reading the blog, you might have noticed we are doing quite a bit of work with the “Kennedy Cluster” — that refers to a number of schools that feed into Kennedy High School, including Argyle Middle School up on Bel Pre Road.

But many of our network members have kids at other schools in Wheaton. Through our connections with the Department of Family and Community Partnerships at MCPS and an amazing property manager at The Fields Apartments we are working to engage parents of kids at the following schools in the “Einstein Cluster”: Oakland Terrace Elementary, Newport Mill Middle and Albert Einstein High.

This is part of the group that went door knocking at The Fields yesterday to tell residents about Neighbors Exchange we will have there on Oct. 27th. We met many parents picking their kids up from the bus stop. In less than 2 hours, we engaged over 80 families!

After door knocking, we went to  watch Mahlet play volleyball with her team at Einstein! They lost to B-CC, but raised a lot of money for for breast cancer awareness.

We’ll be door knocking on Saturday and Monday — come join us as we get to know more neighbors in the “Einstein Cluster”!
