The Runkle School PTO is a very active organization that helps build community at Runkle through our Family Picnic and annual Halloween Fair in the fall, Ice-skating Night, Square-Dancing Night, BINGO Night in the winter, the gala International Night, and the annual Music and Arts Festival in the spring. The PTO supports school activities by supplementing teacher supplies, underwriting class field trips, providing scholarships, and raising school spirit.
The Runkle School Council is actively committed to working on the school's annual School Improvement Plan (available for download on our website: www.runkle. org). The present Runkle School, constructed in 1962, will be undergoing a major renovation/addition, which will provide the school with increased classroom and meeting space, as well as a new Media Center, Cafeteria, Gymnasium, and performance space. For the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school years we will be relocating to the Old Lincoln School on Boylston Street.
