18-9_1Dear RUNKLE Families,

Now is the time to apply for a Runkle PTO Grant. If you have an idea that would benefit the classroom or the whole school, please read below for details on the types of grants awarded. Keep in mind the application deadline is Fri. Nov 10th. After all applications have been submitted, the granting committee will contact all applicants with any follow-up questions. Applicants will then receive letters of approval or denials by sometime in December. Please be aware that PTO Grant funding does take a few weeks to be approved and awarded.

School Committee Chair David Pollak will be visiting Runkle on Monday morning to meet with families and update us on what’s happening in the Brookline school district this year. The agenda is wide open so please join us 8:05am in the Runkle Library.
