Dear parents and guardians, We kindly request you to have important discussions with your children regarding the importance of not bringing toy guns or any dangerous household items to school, as well as refraining from making threats towards other students. It is crucial to understand that inappropriate items and threats can lead to fear and confusion among students, ultimately disrupting the learning environment. To maintain a safe atmosphere for everyone, it is necessary to remind your child that bringing such items to school or on the bus can result in severe consequences, in accordance with school board policy and TN state law. At Ripley Elementary, we take immense pride in providing a secure learning environment for all of our students. Therefore, we ask for your cooperation in having these conversations with your child, as it will greatly assist us in ensuring that they can focus on their academic goals without any distractions. Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership in creating a positive and conducive educational experience for our students. Sincerely, Ripley Elementary School Administration

Music stimulates Learning Research shows that music reduces stress while stimulating happiness, which in turn helps students better concentrate on the task at hand, especially when learning. With this knowledge, Mr. Tommy Durham, Site Director for the Project LEAD program, invested in electronic keyboards for Ripley Elementary School students. Almost twenty years later, these keyboards are still a favorite among students in the after school program. The program team hopes this new music genre will increase student focus and inspire creativity.
