Mrs. Sara Rippard

Hi!  My name is Sara Rippard. This will be my 13th year teaching at River Dell.   I enjoy watching the excitement when students are engaged and learning new things.  In 5th Grade, your child will be switching classes.  I will be your child's ELA and Social Studies teacher.  Ms. Hines will be your child's Math and Science teacher. 

I grew up in Connnecticut and moved to North Carolina after graduating from college.  I started teaching in 2006 after graduating from Sacred Heart University in Connecticut with my Masters Degree in Elementary Education.  I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and spending time outdoors.  The beach is one of my favorite places to visit.

  • Missing or Damaged Library Books

    Every summer many students go off on vacation before turning in all of their library books. We encourage students and their families to bring in missing library books over the summer as soon as the items are found to prevent possible loss or damage and to allow the media center to complete the end-of-the-year inventory. Click here to view your library account status to see if you have any overdue/missing items.
