Mi Casa es su Casa

School raises funds for low-income K-2 students

CASA Academy’s fourth annual fundraising event, “Mi Casa es su Casa: Raising Leaders of our Community,” was held Feb. 22 at the school. More than 200 guests attended the cocktail event that included live entertainment by SunKissed Band, testimonials from CASA Academy staff and scholars. Iris Hermosillo, ABC 15 meteorologist, emceed the event.

CASA Academy was founded in 2014 as a free, public charter school dedicated to closing the achievement gap for students in kindergarten through second grade from low-income communities. CASA strives to have all of its students make over a year of academic growth in a single year.

Money raised from the fundraising event will be used to purchase academic supplies, cover student transportation needs and provide technology for kindergarten classrooms.
