Parent Involvement: Bridging the GAP
In order to do a better job of engaging our parents, Mr. Timothy Fairley conducted research on the best ways to engage
parents at Russell Elementary School. Based on recommendations from his study, we will be implementing a Friday
Folder with a two way communication form that we hope will invite parents to dialogue with the school.
