BATON ROUGE- The Baton Rouge Foreign Language Academic Immersion Magnet School has been selected to receive funding for a new KaBoom playground.
The school will receive a $10,000 grant for new playground equipment. The Parent Teacher Organization applied for a playground grant from KaBoom in September.
In order to be eligible, schools had to sponsor a play date at which time students, parents, school staff, and partners painted and refurbished the current playground.
Once the school was announced as a finalist, people were invited to vote online. The Foreign Language Academic Immersion Magnet School and another elementary school in California were tied in the number of votes received.
