RYMESMA STUDENT AFFIRMATION

I have a purpose for coming to school today. That purpose is to learn as much as I can. I will be a productive citizen by being helpful, not hurtful to anyone. I will strive to demonstrate mastery in all subjects. I will use critical thinking in all situations that I face. I will use my exemplary communication skills to show that I am a life-long scholar who is preparing for a global society. I will show appreciation and respect to all of the teachers who teach me today. And at the end of the day, I will ask myself, Did I fulfill my purpose for today?


OUR NAMESAKE
Ruby Young Elementary was established in 1964 and named in honor of the late great DeSoto ISD educator, Miss Ruby Marguerite Young. She was a third grade teacher with a proven track record of engaging and growing young minds for almost half a century. After 49 years in education, Miss Young retired in 1980.

For more than 50 years, Ruby Young Elementary has been inspired by this courageous and dedicated woman to honor the level of greatness to which the DeSoto community is accustomed. 
In 2015, Ruby Young Elementary began its next chapter of excellence by becoming Ruby Young Medical and Environmental Science Magnet Academy. This is evidence that Miss Young’s passion for education continues to drive our school today.
