KIRKWOOD — In a year when tax revenues continue to decline, public schools are getting by on less money. As a state authorized charter school, Ivy Preparatory Academy at Kirkwood is operating with just 62 cents of every dollar that most public schools receive. That is why its recent collaboration with KaBOOM! and Verint Systems, an international software and services company with a regional office in Alpharetta, is a perfect partnership. KaBOOM! Is a non-profit that matches communities in need of playgrounds with organizations that donate funding and volunteers for community enhancement projects. The three groups work hand-in-hand through an established process that results in a playground that is built in just one day. KaBOOM! Has built 2,200 playgrounds across North America. The goal; for every child to have a playground within walking distance. On February 25, more than 125 Verint employees from locations across the world will join forces with parents, teachers, college students and East Atlanta community members to build the Ivy Preparatory Academy dream playground, garden and outdoor classroom. This will be a memorable event for the East Atlanta community. Verint, KaBOOM! And Ivy Preparatory Academy at Kirkwood welcome everyone to come enjoy the miracle of our "Playground Built in One Day". Volunteer opportunities are available on Build Day, Monday, February 25th. If interested, please email email@example.com. We are also accepting donations of bottled water to keep our volunteers hydrated. The school is located at: 1807 Memorial Drive, Atlanta, 30317. https://www.facebook.com/KaboomComesToIvyPrepKirkwood @ivyprepkirkwood #IvyPlays
