Principal's Message


Welcome to Wentworth Intermediate School! I have had the privilege and honor to serve as the assistant principal the past five years. It has been an emotional year dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and the passing of our principal, Mrs. Hassel. My staff and I are willing to help in all ways possible during this difficult time. I am committed to lead Wentworth Intermediate for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year and will continue to work with all stakeholders.     

I am very proud to be a part of a district that is committed to strengthening its partnership with children, parents, and the community. Our talented staff will work to provide an optimal climate for learning in which children may reach their true potential and pursue their life goals. 

 We believe that our scholars have  much to offer our community and work as the foundation for our future. Academic, behavioral, and social emotional learning are what shape our students to be outstanding citizens and contribute to the overall dynamic of our building.

We also celebrate, appreciate, and recognize  diversity within our community.  As a staff, we support our students to establish a family atmosphere and culture in our building. We also work closely with various community groups and organizations to provide additional resources and support systems. We are fully committed to doing all that we can to ensure student success.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time.  Your  feedback and thoughts are incredibly important to me. You will always find me outside before and after school making connections with our families. We can all work collaboratively to ensure that we are providing the best possible learning environment and services for your child.  I am honored to be serving the entire Calumet City School District #155 family. 

Your partner in education,

Charles Russ
