Our School



October 2018

Dear Ron Russell Families,

The theme for this year is “Our Community, Our Responsibility.”  Together, we will create a culture and climate at Ron Russell that cultivates a “community of learners by behaving in a kind, caring, honest, and compassionate manner in order to challenge and inspire each member of the school community to become more than they ever thought possible” (Casas, 4).  This means that RR staff, students, and parents must take responsibility for striving to become better, being the best role models for each other, and supporting one another to achieve what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. calls the Beloved Community–a community based on justice, equal opportunity, and appreciation.  Only then, can our students achieve excellence. Join me in making this vision a reality.

Activate your personal and private ParentVUE account.  ParentVUE is a district-wide supported web-based program that offers secure, private access to school and student information including assignments, grades, attendance, school calendar, and teacher contact details.  You can email teachers directly within the program. It also gives you access to all of your children within David Douglas School District, not just at Ron Russell. I recommend checking it at least on a weekly basis.

You’re invited to the next Family Leadership Team meeting on November 8 from 4:00-5:30PM.

Boys Basketball registration is open online.

Our four school-wide behavior expectations continue to be that all students are Respectful, Responsible, Make good choices, and are Safe (RRMS).  We refer to them on a daily basis.  We believe these expectations set a tone for optimal learning and safety.
