Our students now have their very own playground thanks to the over 225 volunteers combined from our school, CarMax Cares, organizers from KaBOOM! and Austin residents who came out and built it from the ground up in only 6 hours. Not only do we now have a fun play space to enjoy, but students can take pride in knowing they helped design it. As a part of the KaBOOM! and CarMax Cares grant that funded the build, students were invited to attend a special design event, at which they submitted designs for their dream playgrounds. The final product is based on those designs. It looks fantastic!

Everyone at Wayside: REAL Learning Academy is is incredibly grateful for all of the hard work so many people dedicated to our school. We achieve great things with strong teamwork like we had on this project.
