What is the KaBOOM! Playground Build?

AZACS was once again selected by the KaBOOM! Foundation to receive a grant for state-of-the-art fitness and playground equipment. As many families may recall, KaBOOM! provided funding to build the playground at the AZACS elementary, and now has selected the Upper School for a second grant. The KaBOOM! Foundation has partnered AZACS with Fairytale Brownies as a corporate sponsor.
