  • GRMS Community

    Gordon Russell Middle School has the honor and responsibility of serving students and families throughout our community. We also see and hear the hurt of those in our community during this challenging time, especially our families of color. 

    At Gordon Russell, our school motto is Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day.  We believe that EVERY student deserves an equitable education in a place where they feel welcome and respected.  As a school, we will listen, learn and work towards eliminating inequities and racial barriers. Let’s all unite together and bravely have essential conversations. We love our community and we are committed to working towards an end to racism and social injustice.  At Gordon Russell, we believe in Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day. 

    Best Regards,

    Rolland Hayden and the Gordon Russell MS Staff
