Goodwill Donation Drive

Spring is upon us, which means it's time for spring cleaning! Clean out your closets and garage and help our school out at the same time! How? By donating clothes, shoes, books, electronics, and other items, you will help the Ruth Fisher Elementary Athletic Department raise money. The athletic department earns money for every pound of donated items. All donations are tax-deductible and help fight unemployment in Arizona. Bring your donations to the school between February 16 through March 9. For additional information, please read the donation drive flyer. Thank you for all of your donations!

Great Kindness Challenge Week

Ruth Fisher kicked off our great kindness challenge week with a presentation by The Bee Kind Project! This group of hip-hop dancers showed our kids and staff how to move, have fun, and most of all what Bee Kind looks and sounds like. A huge thanks goes out to the Ruth Fisher PTO for coordinating this presentation!
