Parent Involvement: Bridging the GAP

In an effort to empower and engage our families, Mr. Timothy Fairley conducted research on the best ways to engage and empower families at Russell Elementary School. Based on recommendations from his study, we have implemented the Russell RoadCHAT to encourage a dialogue between home and school.  We will continue the Russell RoadCHAT during the 2014-2015 school year.

If you have not done so already, please complete the PARENT INVOLVEMENT survey below, so we can better serve our Russell Families!
