Direct Donations:  

We have successfully offered a direct donation program the past few years that has been highly supported by our WRS parents. In this fast-paced age where it’s hard to find extra time between work and your student’s activities, parents are looking for a simplified way to offer assistance.

While parents appreciate the services of the PTA, many welcome the opportunity to reduce the number of fundraising solicitations.  In recognition of this fact, the WRS PTA continues to encourage direct donations to satisfy its budgetary requirements used to support the many important programs it sponsors.

Working Together as Partners...

                  The Walter R. Sundling PTA

Dear Sundling Families:

On behalf of the Walter R. Sundling PTA, I’d like to welcome all returning and incoming students, families, faculty and staff! This is a great educational community and we look forward to working together for the benefit of the students here at Sundling.

Our PTA has been busy working behind the scenes this summer getting ready and preparing for a fun year. Our first PTA Event is the Back to School Popsicle Day on Friday, August 18th.

Don’t forget to bring your PTA Direct Donation, Volunteer and Membership forms to the “Walk Your Schedule” on Monday, August 14th from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. The PTA will be collecting these important forms in the District Meeting Room. The benefits of becoming a PTA member are endless. The PTA supports many programs and events at Sundling such as: Back to School Popsicle Day, Book Fair, Teacher Appreciation Week, Black and Orange Social Event, Spirit Wear, Graduation Festivities and the Directory, just to name a few.

Be sure to stay in touch with the PTA by attending our monthly meetings held on the third Wednesday of each month, 7:00 p.m. in the District Meeting Room or click on our website, it’s a great tool, and has a lot of helpful information.

I’m looking forward to working with our terrific WRS PTA Board, and all of you!

Here’s to a fantastic year!

Our PTA has been asked for volunteers to help staff the Sundling Store/PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Support) Cart. Students may visit the cart during the lunch periods on Fridays to trade the Positive Paladins they have earned and collected for a variety of treats, fun school supplies or sundries. No money is exchanged. Please consider signing up to help out this positive rewards system at our school. If you are interested in volunteering, please click the button below to sign up.
