KIPP St. Louis partners with Kaboom and McKesson to build a better tomorrow for Kipp Wisdom Scholars
In November, over 250 volunteers came together to build a brand new playground for the scholars of KIPP Wisdom Academy and the surrounding community. In both planning and building, a tremendous amount of teamwork was displayed to accomplish this task that will not only provide our current scholars a safe place to play and exercise, but will impact hundreds of children and families to come.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

During the planning process, students created and chose specific elements of the playground design. On Build Day, over 250 adults came together to build our brand new playground and outdoor classroom in less than 6 hours!
