I am very excited to start another school year at Russell Elementary. We all understand the task we have as you, our parents, trust us with your children. Here at Russell School we work hard for our students as we know the importance of ensuring they grow both academically and socially. We are proud of our service and in 2020 were recognized as a Blue Ribbon School based on the dedication and hard work of our staff and students. We will continue to stress the importance of giving great effort by being Responsible, Respectful and Safe no matter how difficult a challenge may be. With the support of our Russell parents and the Kalispell community, we strive to set a foundation that will give our students the tools to be successful for years to come.
