STEAM IT Up @ Russell Elementary School

Did you know that our SPECIALISTS are blazing a new trail of integrating the ARTS into STEM? We are calling it, STEAM It UP!  The Russell Specialists have planned lessons that align with the processes that our students are learning in their science and math classes.   Be sure to ask your child about it today and check out our STEAM It Up bulletin board outside of our Art room.  Please email Ms. Kelly Bodner for more information!


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!

We are excited to announce that Russell Elementary is partnering with The Clean Air Campaign. The Clean Air Campaign is committed to improving Georgia’s air quality. Daily they announce Smog Alerts on days when the air quality is unhealthy. You can check the air quality by visiting our Russell’s website or http://www.cleanaircampaign.org/. Each morning in the car rider line Blair the Bear will show the daily air quality.

The Weatherbug system has been installed at Russell. We are one of only two schools in Cobb County to have the Weatherbug. Click on the weather bug to view the current weather at Russell Elementary School.
