I remember attending Russell as a student. I`m now at the Moscow middle school and this summer, it was really sad, I was thinking about Russell and how great it was and it was honestly the best elementary school I have ever been to and the longest. I think of the staffs as my friend and they are really friendly but some are strict but they are also really friendly to students. I`ve been to Russell for 2015-2018 and I love that the bullying at the year 2017-2018 was going a bit down for 5th graders.
