Every year Cushing Elementary Art participates in several art contests. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) created the Junior American Citizens (JAC) Committee to promote good citizenship and appreciation of American heritage and history among every school-age child in the United States. The JAC Committee offers contests in art, creative expression, and community service.   This year’s theme was “The 50th Anniversary of the Lunar Landing-America’s Great Move Forward in Exploration and Technology”. Cushing Elementary has EIGHT 1st PLACE winners this year. The students will be recognized March 4, 2019 during the Awards Luncheon of the Nacogdoches Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution event.  


Art teacher Alisha Ripley and Cushing Elementary staff are very proud of these students and their artistic endeavors.
