Pancake Breakfast at Cleveland School

Next Saturday, December 15, Cleveland School will host a "Winter Wonderland" Pancake Breakfast at the school from 9 to 11 am. Donations are $4 or $2 if you bring in a canned good item. Proceeds will benefit the school.

Cleveland School is part of the Neighborhood Schools as Center of Community project under the direction of the Dayton Foundation and the University of Dayton Fitz Center for Leadership. Their vision is that the new public schools are "centers" of their Dayton neighborhoods. serving as healthy places of learning for children and families and the center of life in the neighborhood.

There originally were four schools in this project. Cleveland School was added last year as a direct result of a UD master's level class that focused on the Walnut Hills Neighborhood. They were so impressed by the neighborhood leadership and the energy and passion of some of the residents that they rearranged the budget to provide for an on-site coordinator to work with the Principal, Ms. Daniel, on creating opportunities for community use of the school. Kym Beasley is that person and she works for the YMCA who is the lead institutional partner for Cleveland School.

Come out on December 15, meet Kym and let's talk about ways that Cleveland School can become the center of our Walnut Hills neighborhood.
