Teachers from Lauderdale County Schools’ 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) and LEAPS before- and after-school programs attended professional development session on Tuesday, October 31. “What First Year Teachers Need to Know”, facilitated by Mr. Texas Culver of UTM- Ripley’s Education Department, provided opportunities to discuss UTM’s Educator Preparation Program (EPP) design for undergraduate students pursuing careers in the field of education. These experienced teachers were able to share about their first year teaching experiences and provide recommendations for curriculum design that would best support these future educators. Many ideas, thoughts, and perspectives were shared with Mr. Culver for consideration during UTM’s EPP curriculum development process to ensure that first year teachers are successful from their first day of school through their careers.
As a reminder, Lauderdale County Schools will not be in session on Wednesday, November 1, 2023, due to staff Professional Development.

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.
Students can wear non frightening costumes on October 31 for Halloween.
BUS UPDATE - OCTOBER 26 Bus 45 and Bus 20 will not run afternoon routes or tutoring routes TOMORROW (10/26). Families, please make alternative arrangements for student pick up tomorrow afternoon.
