In the last few years, the Runkle PTO Grants Committee has funded a variety of interesting ideas across all grades, including microphones & power supplies for the Multipurpose (7-8th Grades), Math Collaboration (5th Grade), Art equipment (K-5), trampoline (7/8 RISE) and iPod Touches (K-2 listening centers).

How do I get my idea funded?

Fill out the one-page form online at or print it and fill out by hand.  Ask if you need help!  All applications are due by Wednesday, November 5, 2014 in the Runkle PTO mailbox in the main office; or email them to PTO Grant Committee Chair, Shalini Kasida at  (%20skasida null@null hotmail
