As Earth Day approaches, Ripon Elementary School is dedicated to instilling environmental stewardship in its young learners. Recognizing the importance of teaching sustainability from an early age, the school's Parent Club organized a Kids Art Contest to celebrate Earth Day.

Students from all grades participated, showcasing their visions of a greener world through vibrant artwork. Three standout pieces were chosen as winners and awarded gift cards from Michaels to encourage their creative endeavors further.

These initiatives not only foster creativity but also cultivate a deeper understanding of environmental issues. Ripon Elementary is sowing the seeds of environmental consciousness in its students, ensuring a brighter, greener future for all.

"The first Earth Day in 1970 mobilized millions of Americans from all walks of life to birth the modern environmental movement. Since then, Earth Day has evolved into the largest civic event on Earth, activating billions across 192 countries to safeguard our planet and fight for a brighter future."
