This August, people all across the MidWest will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a total solar eclipse. At Russell, along with the rest of the district, we are excited to take advantage of this event with some great learning and viewing activities. Our students' safety is our number one priority and to that end, we are starting early by sharing some safe-viewing and background information with our students. Feel free to watch these three short videos, linked below, which will be shared with your students during science class and watch for more information coming soon!"
