KCPS is excited to announce a new partnership with Kansas City Athletics!

The partnership aims to grow upon the recent KCPS Kids Day Game on Nov. 7. Over 1,200 elementary-age students attended the KC Women's Basketball game versus Westminster College. The energy and enthusiasm of the students, who were guests of University Health, helped the Roos to a 91-49 victory.

In addition to creating new field trip opportunities for students, this partnership will allow KCPS staff will be able to attend UMKC basketball games for free to cheer on the Roos!
