“Our elementary school will build an 'Imagination Playground,' an innovative playground system comprised of larger-than-life foam blocks that encourages learning, social development, teamwork, movement, language and fun. Every day on the 'Imagination Playground,' students will have a safe environment to take informed risks and practice creative problem solving. They will be grow as leaders and understand the power of collaboration. It is our hope that these simple foam pieces will be both literal and figurative building blocks, that what our students change on the playground today lays the foundation for what they can change in our world tomorrow.”
