Thank you Runkle parents and our Spanish Enrichment Club for creating this beautiful Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Display in our lobby.
Dear Runkle Community,
I want to take this opportunity to THANK our RUNKLE PTO and especially Jen Reed (Organizer) and Alisa Ridruejo (Haunted Walk) for such an incredible event last Friday night. I cannot recall EVER seeing so many Runkle families having such a good time at the Halloween Fair. However, it's not over. I hope everyone enjoys Trick of Treating on Monday. I'm giving out full size Kit Kats and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups in West Roxbury, trying to fill the void of having no boys at home:(
Runkle students DO NOT wear costumes to school on Monday. The Halloween Fair is our celebration. It is important to remember that Halloween is not observed by every Runkle family.
Our K-2 teachers, with the support of our Literacy Specialists, finished the first round of mClass assessments last Friday. We now have critical data that will inform our literacy instruction for every level of reader. Our teachers will be receiving more professional development during the afternoon of November 8th related to decodable texts. I am very proud of Runkle's staff and their investment in learning everything there is to know about the science of reading in order to reach all students.
2022 Desmos Pumpkin Carving Contest
Mr. Cramer's 6th and 7th grade math students have been busy creating jack-o’-lanterns using Desmos. Students used points in the coordinate plane to trace and carve circles, ellipses and polygons out of their pumpkin. Some students spent hours trying to problem solve and create their intricate designs. Please join us in voting for your favorite pumpkins by clicking on the link below. Prizes will be awarded for the scariest, funniest and most original designs.
