In February, Russell Elementary School and the Hands on Atlanta
Discovery Program teamed up for the 2nd year in a row to
offer a Georgia Milestones Workshop.
In attendance were third, fourth, and fifth grade students
from Russell and Fulbright Scholars from all across the globe.
The students and the scholars worked together to complete
hands-on performance tasks which extended Social Studies skills.
Parents served as volunteers for the morning event which came
on the heels of our International Night and parade.
This Hands on Atlanta event was an amazing culmination of
Russell’s celebration of cultures around the world!
Check out our slide show from this wonderful event!

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