The mission of Minnie Ruffin Elementary School is to educate each child to his/her ever-increasing maximum academic and social levels.
Greetings Baby Wildcat Family,
Beginning Monday, April 6th, Mrs. Brass and Mrs. Hunter will be at the school from 10:30 AM until 12:00 PM to allow parents to check out chromebooks for their children. Each parent will be allowed to check out one chromebook per family. The chromebook must be signed for and returned in the same condition as it was prior to check out. Parents will assume total responsibility for each chromebook until it is returned.
**Parents, please remember to sign up with our Remind Application for important messages and reminders.
**We are also asking our parents to check each teacher's website page and/or Class Dojo for posted hours when each teacher will be available to answers any questions and provide needed support for parents and students.

Welcome to Minnie Ruffin Elementary School!
The faculty and staff at Minnie Ruffin Elementary School are committed to excellence. We believe that all children should be accepted into the educational program as they are and that all students should be provided with a climate conducive to learning. We offer opportunities as well as activities for learning experiences; and these learning experiences should promote behavioral development, which will affect continued satisfactory adjustments to life.
We believe that all students, within the limits of their capacity, should obtain an education and develop emotionally, morally, socially, and physically so that they may become increasingly able to cope with life's problems.
All teachers believe in the importance of working to the best of their abilities at all times to implement the school's program. They also believe that their students should be taught to think and do for themselves in their homes and/or work environment.
The total staff of the school believes that teaching is a joyful service in which all members strive to keep an open mind for all that is good in education. We further believe in adapting to and accepting change for the better.
We recognize the fact that parents and the community should be involved with the total development of the child's education. Therefore, it is necessary for the school to have full cooperation from the community and parents in order to ascertain the educational goals for the child.
Mrs. Sylvia Brass
Mrs. Jennett Hunter
