Summer Break

Dear Ron Russell Students and Families,

We would like to thank you for a terrific 2013-2014 school year. There were many highlights of learning and fun throughout the last ten months. We experienced good growth in our reading scores, an improvement in our attendance rate, and a drop in our chronic attendance rate. In addition, our students received less discipline referrals this year than last year. It is sure a privilege and pleasure being principals of such a fine middle school.

We will miss our 8th graders and wish them all the best in their high school endeavors. You will always be Timberwolves!

We would like to welcome our newest 6th grade students and families to Ron Russell Middle School. Be looking for a letter from us around the beginning of August that will contain information about your advisory teacher and room number, first day of school schedules, supply lists, and bus and P.E. uniform information.

Again, thank you, students and families, for all that you do to help make RRMS a great place to learn. We hope you have a safe and healthy summer.


Andy Long, Principal
Larry Tew, Vice Principal

Common Core Roadmaps

RRMS Families,

Please check out content and grade-specific parent roadmaps that provide detailed information for parents about the expectations of the Common Core in Mathematics and Language Arts. These roadmaps include examples of grade-level focus in the content area, sample progressions of learning across three grade levels in the Common Core, and tips to parents on communicating with teachers about their child’s work and how to support student learning at home. Grades 6-8 are posted here!

Common Core Standards

Parents, you can learn more about the Common Core Standards. These show what students in Pre-K through 12th grade should know and be able to do in English language arts and mathematics. The standards will help all students across Oregon learn the same skills. This will make sure that they are ready for college and careers. The standards include changes, or "shifts," in how teachers teach to help children succeed in the topics and skills that matter most. Please read more about these "shifts" and some frequently asked questions about the Common Core.
