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.

    Carpool has been running so smoothly in the mornings.  We want to remind parents that you should not drop off students at the top of the bus driveway to walk down to school.  You can walk from your home or take them through carpool line.  We appreciate your cooperation with this as we try to keep everyone safe. We want to thank everyone who attended Heritage Day on Saturday.  We had an amazing turn out, and we can't wait to do it again next year.

    We are really excited about our staff/parent basketball game for this Friday, March 11th.  We will be playing against Thanksgiving Elementary at Archer Lodge Middle School.  Our women's team of parents and teachers will be playing at 6pm.  Our men's team will be playing at 7pm.  Admission is one non-perishable food item for our Backpack Buddies program.  This is such a great opportunity to help our families in need.

    Report cards went home today. Please make sure to go over these with your children, then sign and return the envelopes. Tomorrow night is Spirit Night at Culver's on Hwy 70 in Clayton, near CVS and Bojangles. Come enjoy some delicious dinner at Culver's from 5:00-8:00, and a portion of the proceeds comes back to the students here at RDE.

    We hope that everyone had a restful and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday with their families. We only have 15 days of school until our break in December and we want to encourage everyone to make these days count. There is a PTA meeting on Tuesday evening at 6:00 in the River Dell media center. We would like to encourage everyone to come out and hear about all of the great things that our PTA has been up to. Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much!
