Dear Ron Russell Families,

The first month of school has come and gone!  We had many events including 6th Grade Open House and Back to School Night.  It has been a pleasure getting to know you and our children, and I could not be happier about being a part of the Ron Russell Community.  Tips from the month of September:

1-Follow the RRMS Facebook page and Twitter account that I personally handle for upcoming events, school-wide information, and highlights.

2-Sign up for ParentVUE.  The links above are translated and shows you a video of how to activate and login to see your child’s attendance, grades, assignments, and quiz scores.

3-Get involved.  Come to a Family Leadership Team meeting every 2nd Thursday of the month from 9:15-11:15; the next one is October 12.  Volunteer to chaperone a field trip–remember to complete and submit a Volunteer Form in the office.  Attend a culturally specific parent engagement event with district leaders–I’ll let you know dates once the next ones are scheduled.

4-Check-in with your kids.  Ask them how their day went?  What they learned?  Something interesting or surprising that happened?

October is going to be great!  We look forward to diving deeper into the curriculum now that classroom expectations have been set.

Best to you,

Thu Truong, Principal
