Russell Independent Schools is where “Tradition Meets Excellence”, and a key factor in Russell’s excellence is family and community support. Over the last 13 years, the Russell Education Endowment Foundation (REEF) proudly raised over $200,000 to support excellence in education at Russell through district and teacher grants. As a result, student learning continued to be enhanced above and beyond the classroom. These grants wouldn’t be possible, however, without the generous support of community members like you.REEF is very excited to introduce our newest Russell tradition, Pave the Way. We ask you join us in honoring students, teachers, and coaches (both past & present) by purchasing a brick in their honor or memory. Each brick is 4 x 8 inches and holds up to three lines of text. The bricks will proudly be displayed around the flagpole and walkway on the front lawn of Russell High School, visible to all students, alumni, family members, and guests on our campus.Join us in Paving the Way for future classroom grants by honoring your favorite Russell student, teacher, or coach!
