The Owings Mills JCC’s Early Childhood Education Center threw its support behind the Orioles on Wednesday, Oct. 1.
The school’s approximately 270 students, some dressed in Orioles garb and sporting face paint, gathered in the JCC’s lobby to cheer, dance and rally for their hometown team, as it entered the playoffs.
Ilene Meister, director of the ECE, said it held the rally “to create memories for these children.” She said her oldest child was a little boy the last time the Orioles went to the World Series in 1983, and he still talks about it with excitement.
“It makes children realize they’re part of something bigger,” Meister said.
Classes came up with cheers and participated in art projects that included headbands, signs and more.
