Principal's Message

Welcome to Russell Primary School’s website!

What a great way to keep in touch with all of the great things that are going on at our school! We are blessed with wonderful students, parents, faculty and staff and we love the opportunity to show how awesome we are! This is my 15th year in the Russell Independent School System and I continue to be proud to be a part of the long legacy of high expectations and academic achievement that is reflected in our students and their successes.   Read more...   << Close

 

Elementary Physical Education

Russell Independent's Elementary Physical Education Program works to give students the knowledge and skills they need life a healthy lifestyle. Students develop an understanding of the importance of lifelong physical activity, the importance of teamwork/cooperation, and an appreciation of sport and recreation. There are multiple opportunities for students to participate on sports teams while in elementary grades. While the school doesn't sponsor teams, information about teams is distributed through the schools for interested students.   << Close

 

Elementary Music Program

Russell Independent's Elementary General Music classes explore all the aspects of music. We learn folk songs, instruments, and dances from different times and cultures. We study the orchestra instrument familes and composers. The children learn many different styles of music and are exposed to all the elements of music. We study melody, rhythm, form, harmony, timbre, dynamics, and tempo. All students use the piano lab to enrich the understanding of the music elements by learning simple ostinatos and rhythm patterns. The pianos also encourage creativity.   << Close

 

FISH! Philosophy

This philosophy has infiltrated our students and staff. It is a set of simple, practical tools to help us create the work culture we want at our school. It is a way to build stronger relationships that equip us to face challenges more effectively. FISH! philosophy fulfills the most basic needs of human beings who, in turn, fulfill the needs of the organization—more connected teams, better communication, extraordinary service, and higher retention. In order to cultivate this attitude in our school, we will have ongoing activities and monthly celebrations. Check out what we're doing and "catch" the spirit, too!  << Close

Elementary Visual Arts Program

Our Art class is a place where we come together each week to view, understand, discuss and create artworks. We gain hands on experience using various media to create art that reflects an understanding of important visual art concepts such as the Elements of Art and Principles of Design. Our classroom environment provides a supportive community in which students can express themselves and reflect upon their artistic decisions and the expressions of others. Our classroom also serves an important role as a resource that contributes to the cultural environment of our learning communities at RPS and RMIS.
