Greetings Russell Middle School Parents, Students and Friends:


Russell Middle School is home to an amazing group of 552 students in grades sixth through eighth grade. Russell Middle Schools commitment to academic excellence is recognized across the Commonwealth of Kentucky. During the 2016-2017 school year, Russell Middle School won the State Quick Recall Championship and its fourteenth Science Olympiad Championship. Further Science Olympiad placed 29th in the Nation and were National Champions in Mission Possible. Students have achieved individual and team accolades in athletics, fine arts and community service.


Russell Middle School provides students the opportunity to develop character and express their interest through unique learning experiences. Russell Middle School offers twenty two athletic teams and nine clubs for students to be engaged in.


The key aspect of Russell’s exemplary learning environment is the staff. The staff believes they are here for one reason and that is to serve students. Students are the most important people at Russell Middle School.


Russell Middle School provides a safe and extraordinary education to every student.


As we move back into the school year please provide your child with the encouragement and structure to be successful. This can be accomplished by providing the following:

· A set place for homework-establish an area where homework will be placed and completed.

· Use the Agenda to write down homework, projects and test-all RMS students have an agenda to record assignments.

· Encourage time management and routines-wake up, bed time, homework, upcoming projects

· Offer to Help-never do homework for your child, however let them know you believe in them and assist when needed. Encourage and help your child set goals for the year.



Shawn Moore Principal, RMS
