Retired teachers help SR 8th graders Get Real

South Ripley eighth grade teachers recently conducted The Real World with their students. SR retired teachers manned tables, along with other community and business leaders, where students learned their salaries based on their job choices, paid bills, found out how many children they would have, and made purchases. To offset the costs of hosting their own event, the 8th grade teachers were awarded an Active Teachers Grant from the Indiana Retired Teacher Association. Holly Swinney and Melanie Evans coordinated the activity, along with Principal Derik Hutton and Guidance Counselor Ashlee Miller.
