• Dear Russell families,

    I hope that all of you had a pleasant summer and had some time for rest and relaxation. I am looking forward to a great school year ahead.  I would like to welcome those who are new to our Russell family and hope that you will feel at home here.  We have many support systems in place here to help you.  Kelly, our secretary, is a great resource and is always here to assist in any way she can – as is anyone on the staff.  Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance.

    As we continue with the implementation of the Montana State Common Core Standards, PLTW, and SPARK, we will strive to prepare our students to be innovative, problem solving, and able to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.  The home is a child’s primary environment of learning.  We are all here to assist you in any way we can to develop his/her full potential.

    It is my sincere hope that all of us will work together to foster in our students an enthusiasm for learning.  As co-instructors of your children, our staff and I appreciate and depend on your assistance and cooperation with us in nurturing all aspects of their development. None of us can do it alone.  It takes teamwork. 

    I am excited about the new school year and look forward to seeing you all!

    Cindy Christensen, Principal
