Dear Ron Russell Families,
Welcome to our website! It is designed so you may familiarize yourself with Ron Russell Middle School and is one way of communicating a variety of topics of interest related to our school and programs. Hopefully, this information will help ensure that your child has a safe and successful school experience at Ron Russell filled with fun and, most importantly, learning.
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!
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.
