Message from the Principal


February 27, 2024

Dear Ron Russell Families,

No School Progress Grading March 1:  The progress report for Quarter 3 is quickly approaching. There will be no school this Friday, March 1st for Staff Professional Development and Progress Report Grading.  Students should check with their teachers to make sure all their work is complete and turned in. 

Track and Field Registration:  Registration for Middle School Track and Field is now open. The season begins April 1st and runs through May.  Students must have a current physical to participate. Registration can be found at our Community Sports page. 

High School Forecasting:  Next week, March 5th, 6th, and 7th, we  will begin high school forecasting in 8th Grade math classes.  Forecasting is the process we use for students to select their classes for next year.  This is another important step for our 8th Graders to transition to high school. Forecasting for our current 6th and 7th Graders will happen at a later date. 

Elevate Partnership Celebration: All are invited to our celebration this Wednesday, February 28th at 6:00pm for  the partnership between Elevate Oregon and David Douglas School District. Elevate Oregon is a community organization which provides mentorship to schools  Our partnership began this school year and already you can see the impact on our students.  We are excited to celebrate the work we are doing with Elevate at RRMS. 

Go Timberwolves!
