THE STORY:

Purpose Prep has partnered with Kaboom! and the Nashville Predators NHL Team to build our scholars a playground (Check out our playground design pictures here). We know in today’s society play is often undervalued and deprioritized in a child’s life. In North Nashville, children rarely get the opportunity to engage in physical activity. There is limited outdoor space that is safe for children to play, and they spend most of their days inside. At Purpose Prep, we are excited to build a playground on our school grounds where our scholars can engage in safe and active physical movement and play. 

Our goal is to raise $2,000 to support with playground equipment expenses. Our first day of school starts on July 29th, marking the beginning of our scholars' transformational journey towards college and life success. We are asking each supporter to contribute at least $29 to commemorate this special day. Of course, any amount you would like to give would be greatly appreciated.

The challenge of building a playground is not easy. It requires commitment from all stakeholders, but in the end our students and the community of North Nashville will be able to have a safe place to play. Purpose Prep is truly a school unlike any other. Currently in North Nashville (the neighborhood we will serve), only 1 in 4 students is on grade level in reading and math upon exiting elementary school, and we have the opportunity to change this reality by setting each of our young scholars  on the path to college!

Thank you for your interest in the education of our children!
