Our School

May 19th, 2020

Dear Ron Russell Families,

The end of the year is typically a time to finish out work for the year.  While the excitement of summer vacation is different this year, the need to finish our school work is still present.  As we approach June 11th (the official last day of school,) be sure to check in with your teachers so you know what you must complete.  Everything you do now will better prepare you for next year. 

Video Announcements:  Here is the link for the RRMS Video Announcements Week 9. Thanks to Mr. Tew for the humor.  #it’scalledacting 

Distance Learning Updates:

  • With the decision to have Fridays be Non-student contact days, we will not be having office hours on Fridays.  Also, classes that typically meet everyday (Math, English, 6th Grade Sci/Soc Stud) will post 3 lessons per week.  All other classes will continue to post 2 lessons per week.
  • The last day teachers will post lessons will be Wednesday, June 3rd.  The lost offline paper packet pick up will be Monday, June 8th.
  • The official last day of school is Wednesday, June 11th.  Be sure to check with your teacher so you know what you need to turn in.
  • No need to turn in Chromebooks at this time.  We highly recommend you keep Chromebooks until the Fall. 

Student Check Out/Locker Clean Out:  Students will be able to come into the building to collect their personal belongings from their lockers.  

  • Students should bring library books and other school issued items to return.  
  • Contents from PE lockers will be bagged and ready to be picked up.
  • Staff will be there to support students and ensure proper safety guidelines.
  • Ms. Garcia and Ms. Culp will coordinate with students who need to turn in musical instruments. 
  • The schedule is 
    • Students with Last Names A-H, Monday, June 1, 1pm-5pm
    • Students with Last Names I-P, Tuesday, June 2, 1pm-5pm
    • Students with Last Names Q-Z, Wednesday, June 3,1pm-5pm 

8th Grade Parade:  Mark your calendar for the evening of June 4th from 5-7pm for the 8th Grade Parade.  Although we cannot mark your accomplishments in the usual way, the 8th Grade Parade will be a drive thru celebration and opportunity to say good-bye.  Decorate your car with Timberwolves Spirit and come to RRMS one last time. 

Go Timberwolves!
