At the end of the 2022-23 school year, Franklin Square Elementary/Middle is set to merge with Steuart Hill Academy after the latter school closes permanently.

In anticipation of the move, the Ravens and Heart of America are developing spaces for outdoor learning, placing mobile furniture in the computer room to make the area a flex space, sprucing up the teacher’s lounge, promoting wayfinding in the hallways, and decorating the cafeteria in the school’s and Ravens’ colors, along with uplifting messages and graphics.

“An investment in our schools is an investment in our children’s future – and that of our community. We’re honored to help bring these important upgrades to Franklin Square Elementary/Middle School, because every child deserves a safe, welcoming and engaging learning environment,” team president Sashi Brown said. “This project will provide immediate and long-term educational opportunities for many children in Baltimore.”

The Ravens Foundation, the team’s charitable initiative to help children and their families with housing, hunger, education, athletics and mentoring, is fully funding the project.

Nearly 200 volunteers, including Brown and other team executives, players and staff, will participate in the renovations on Monday.
