Principal's Message

Welcome Thomas Russell Middle School Community to the 2019 - 2020 Academic School Year!

Middle school is a period during which students begin to truly construct their self-image. We, the staff of Thomas Russell Middle School (TRMS), strive to aid students in this important endeavor by providing a wide array of academic and social emotional experiences. By allowing them to take an active role in gaining knowledge, we assist our students in becoming self-directed learners who recognize the importance of being outstanding influencers in our global society by respecting diversity, righting wrongs and seeking innovative solutions to problems.

TRMS also recognizes the vital role each family plays in their student's academic journey. Strong family-school partnerships provide the safety net for all of students to challenge themselves to reach their fullest potential. To provide further support, our school is structured into five separate teams, which allows students the opportunity to build a connection with both a core set of adults and a cohort of eager learners. We invite each family to be an active part of their child's experience at TRMS. Joining PTSA, attending PIQE sessions, or chaperoning field trips serve as just a few examples of how to do so. Seeing that a diverse group of adults, whether they work within or outside of TRMS, cares about their academic and emotional success is how we help them to build a more equitable tomorrow. Thank you for all that you do to encourage, inspire, and mold our Russell Wolverines into the best people that they can be.
