For the second consecutive year, OriolesREACH and Baltimore City Public Schools are teaming up to support education initiatives for the city’s youth, sponsored by T. Rowe Price. The highlight of the joint venture is a new integrated summer learning curriculum based on Orioles baseball. The partnership includes Orioles game ticket donations, pre-game ceremony recognition at Camden Yards for outstanding City Schools students and teachers, and player and Oriole Bird appearances at City Schools.

Nearly 14,000 students at 80 city public elementary and middle schools in summer learning will be taught math, reading, science and social studies skills during 20 hours of activities as outlined in the “Learning with the Orioles” curriculum, which was written by City Schools teachers and Child First Authority Inc. curriculum specialists. “Learning with the Orioles” blends skills from each academic discipline for each grade level with facts and games related to the Orioles and baseball in general. It represents a new style of curriculum for City Schools, one that integrates several different academic subjects into a program that is educational, fun and includes enrichment activities, including a visit to Camden Yards at the end of the summer session, which runs from June 28 through July 23.

Nearly 5,000 City Schools students working with the “Learning with the Orioles” curriculum will receive complimentary tickets to attend the July 22 game at Camden Yards, where they will be recognized for their participation.
