We have two new clubs this year. The Sewing Club led by Mrs. Cowell has learned how to sew straight lines. The students made a tic-tac-toe board and were able to play using their own creation. The Embroidery Club is led by one of our parents, Leslie Ridgway. These students used their new embroidery skills to create finger puppets.

In an effort to make strategic, data-driven decisions, Russellville School District has partnered with Hanover Research to conduct research projects for our district for one year. The 2018 School Climate Survey is the first survey Hanover will be conducting for our district. The district is requesting participation from parents and community members in this 10-minute anonymous survey. The results of the survey will be used to guide our improvement planning process, and we need your participation in our improvement endeavors. The survey link will be available via this link: https://hanoverresearch.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_40zEfTzt8VSGurP and on the RSD Facebook page from March 28th-April 11th. Parents will also be receiving a letter with the web link and a QR code this week. Thank you very much for your continued support of the Russellville School District. Working together, we make a positive difference in the future of our children.

Dr. Gotcher will host a Twitter Town Hall on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, from 6:30-8 p.m. on the social media platform Twitter. During the town hall, participants will have the opportunity to give feedback on three questions: what does RSD need to start doing, what does RSD need to stop doing, and what does RSD need to continue doing. The three questions will be released at different times throughout the evening on Dr. Gotcher’s Twitter account @mlgotcher. Participants are asked to use the hashtag #RSDListens when responding to the questions. Dr. Gotcher will be in the Board Room at the Administration Building during the Twitter Town Hall. Community members, parents, staff, and students are welcome to attend and view the tweets as they come in. The district will also release an online survey with the same questions for anyone who wants to give feedback, but doesn’t want to participate in the Twitter Town Hall. The Twitter Town Hall is part of Dr. Gotcher’s Listen and Engage Plan that includes gathering feedback from students, parents, staff, and community members in the River Valley.
