About Us

RES Mission:

The Rumney School Board, Russell Elementary School Administration, and Staff are committed to providing a safe and comfortable atmosphere in which children can learn. This includes showing respect for one another and the school facility, encouraging a sense of self-responsibility and taking pride in working to the best of one’s ability.

Within this environment, we also are committed to:

  • Developing each student’s full academic potential;

  • Cultivating good character, citizenship, and self-reliance;

  • Helping students to build positive self-esteem and desire to become lifelong learners;

  • Encouraging collaboration among staff to provide learning experiences relevant to all students’ needs;

  • Implementing curriculum in ways which will motivate and challenge students to learn;

  • Involving students in programs that promote healthful living;

  • Establishing a school and community partnership.
