NAACP Parent Council Rep Welcome

Hello Blake Family,

We hope you’ve had a great summer!   We wanted to take this opportunity to say introduce ourselves.  We are Blake High School’s Parent Council Representatives this year, Kanna Annamalai-Brown and Preeti Bone and we are looking forward to a great year together. 

The Purpose of the Parents’ Council is to provide a forum through which interested citizens may offer assistance, guidance and support to African American parents and students of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) to pursue the highest quality education possible through encouragement, information sharing, positive motivation, critical evaluation and advocacy.

We plan to identify school-related issues and concerns and seek solutions to those problems/concerns. Our objective is to establish a working relationship between the Parents’ Council, the PTSA, faculty and school administrators.

We will be working in partnership with the PTSA in developing and supporting programs for our students and parents.  We know that these are unprecedented times for us all and we are here to support you with your needs.  We will be taking advantage of the virtual platform to try to provide as many opportunities for students and parents, to include guest speakers.

The NAACP Parent Councils meet online once a month and our schedule is posted online on our website at  These meetings are open to all parents so please attend if possible.

We are here to advocate for you and your students throughout the year.  Please feel free to reach out to us anytime.  You can reach us by email at

If you have any questions throughout the year, we are here to support you!  We look forward to a great year together. 


Kanna and Preeti
