A message from our Principal

Dear Russell School Families & Web Visitors,

Welcome to our website! Here at Russell School, we are pleased to have the opportunity to serve the community of Gray by working with the students and their families in many capacities. Members of our faculty and staff are highly qualified and experienced in meeting the unique needs of students in kindergarten through second grade.

Throughout the year we work diligently to continue the legacy of success established at Russell by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff and a number of community partners. In our safe learning environment, our staff provide developmentally appropriate programming founded on research-based instructional strategies designed to support students’ achievement academically, socially, and emotionally.

At Russell School we believe communication between home and school is an essential component to student success. We use many strategies to help maintain strong communication. That said, we encourage parents, students, and faculty to meet, talk on the phone, or e-mail whenever necessary to clarify school matters, discuss concerns, or share information specific to an individual student.

We encourage you to check out our website often to stay informed about school events and special projects.

Additionally, I would like parents, students and the greater community to feel free to contact me if a question or concern arises or in the event that you would like to share your thoughts with me directly. I can be reached by email at or by phone at (207) 657–4929. I welcome the opportunity to speak with you.

Danny J. Blake
