Casita Center for Technology, Science, and Math is a magnet elementary school in Vista, California. It serves approximately 700 kids from grades K-5 as well as additional preschoolers. Casita is in a Federal Title I low income neighborhood with 63% of the kids being socioeconomically disadvantaged. Overall, the school is a very energetic place with teachers and administrators coming up with new ways of teaching and new educational opportunities all of the time. An Imagination Playground in a Box would be embraced by everyone. This Casita playground is tired and is in the process of being upgraded, (although progress is slow because it is being funded by the parents through the PTA). There's a large blacktop area, new swings, and old play structures which are being removed one at a time because they have become unsafe. So far the PTA has funded a small climbing structure, but it will be years of fundraising before we can replace the rest of the equipment. An Imagination Playground in a Box would add so much joy to the play space and give the kids a chance to work together to build ever-changing creations..
