TRMS Parent Meetings
Parents and guardians are encouraged to have contact with Russell staff through Parent Square, email, phone call, or schedule a meeting. The Parent Square app is downloadable through iTunes or Google Play.
If academic concerns arise, help your student practice self-advocacy by having the child first communicate with the teacher(s) before getting involved. The majority of concerns can be resolved this way.
If the student is unable to solve the problem, contact the teacher(s) by one of the aforementioned methods. Occasionally an issue may need you to communicate with teachers to be settled. Rarely will you need to include administration in these discussions.
Back-to-School Night and Open House
Back-to-School Night is different at the secondary level because families simply follow an abbreviated version of the student's schedule to get an introduction to each of the child's classes and teachers; this time is not for discussing particulars about your student.
To help students practice self advocacy, MUSD middle schools do NOT have Open House nights. Instead, parents are invited to student-led conferences where students present their academic goals and progress to parents or guardians.
In addition to meeting with teachers or participating in student-led conferences, parents are encouraged to actively engage in school-wide meetings that may involve meeting with staff, other parents, students, and the community. Some of TRMS school-wide meetings are listed below. Simply click each to find our more about the meeting.
