    The event is spearheaded by the national non-profit group KaBOOM!, which is dedicated to saving and creating play space within walking distance for every child, according to organizers. This is the second time Mrs. Obama has helped the group build a playground.

    Imagine School is the only D.C. charter school to provide single-sex education under one roof, with boys and girls in separate classes starting in the first grade.
