Earth Day Celebration

In celebration of Earth Day 2017, Ruby Elementary School invited the Columbia Marionette Theatre to perform their “Litter Trashes Everyone” program. This performance is in collaboration with South Carolina’s Palmetto Pride Education program. It is designed to encourage students of all ages to take an active role in litter prevention. The students at RES have watched this program many times but are still mesmerized by the energy of the Columbia Marionette Theatre and they learn the importance of keeping South Carolina beautiful. 

Pictured is our Palmetto Pride poster contest winner, fifth grade student Candice Hoosier.

Art Fun at RES

Students at Ruby Elementary had fun learning how to mix colors to make a color wheel. Then, they used what they learned about color theory to make various projects this year. The students in the photo learned about the parts of a landscape before beginning their landscape paintings.
Parents and visitors have enjoyed viewing the ongoing Art Stars Display outside the art classroom, especially during Parent-Teacher conferences and during musical performances. Art supplies used for these projects were funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts. We greatly appreciate the support Ruby Elementary has received from these organizations. We also want to thank our families for supporting the arts at Ruby Elementary School!
