Our next #LauderdaleProud feature is Missy Patton Rogers! Missy Patton Rogers, Ed.D., graduated from Halls High School in 1996. She has earned degrees from Dyersburg State Community College, University of Memphis, and Trevecca Nazarene University. She has also earned her Doctor of Education (Ed.D) degree from Capella University. For 20 years prior to teaching, Dr. Rogers was an Emergency Medical Dispatcher and an Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) with West Tennessee Healthcare. She made the decision in her early thirties to enroll in college and earn her bachelor’s degree. She shares her journey with her students as a reminder to never give up on their dreams, even when life turns a different direction. Her favorite part of her teaching career is having the opportunity to teach and nurture the children of her hometown. Dr. Rogers is another reason for us to be #LauderdaleProud!

RMS Families, Ripley Middle School aims to provide a safe and supportive learning environment for our students. Throughout the school year, we have had a few instances of toy guns being brought to campus. Though these items are not a physical threat, they create disruptions to learning, and jeopardize our safe and supportive atmosphere. Students who are found with these items on campus or buses will receive the appropriate disciplinary action. We ask that our families have conversations regarding the appropriateness of items that are brought to school as well as the practice of checking belongings before leaving home each day. We are including example pictures below of items that have recently been brought on campus for reference. We appreciate you all partnering with us as we continue to provide our safe and supportive learning environment for all students!

Good afternoon. A student brought a brightly colored toy gun to the middle school today. The gun was a toy, however, it was shown to students. Once students notified an adult, the situation was resolved immediately. The toy gun was retrieved from the student's backpack. There was never any danger to students or staff at Ripley Middle School. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school at (731) 635-1391.
