Annual Multicultural Festival
Every year, the Calvert community comes together for International Week and Calvert’s Kitchen, a multicultural festival that celebrates community, world language, and culture. This celebration is equal parts fun and educational. Along with helping the community learn more about the diverse cultures and heritages that make up Calvert, attendees enjoy a potluck-style dinner that features cuisine from Calvert families influenced by cultures around the world.
Bake Sale Benefits and Supply Drives
In 2023, the Middle School Diversity Club create Mother's Day baskets
filled with personal items for 28 women from the Marian House. The Marian House, which is a nonprofit organization, helps rehabilitate women working toward a better life. To raise the funds, Diversity Club members hosted a bake sale and partnered with the Sixth Grade to decorate baskets.
Throughout the year, Calvert Middle Schoolers also organized a non-perishable food and supply drive to benefit Hampden Family Center, Paul's Place, and other Baltimore nonprofits.
During the 2023-2024 school year, the Institute for Leadership & Purpose again facilitated a meal drive to combat food insecurity in Baltimore. The drive yielded more than 60 baskets, each of which contained all the necessary foods and supplies for a robust Thanksgiving meal.
MLK Jr. Day of Service
Each year, Calvert hosts the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
, a day of community engagement offering both on-site and off-site service activities meant to make a difference and better the lives of others. Hundreds of community members come together to volunteer their time and services to continue honoring MLK's vision for the world.
