A Note from our PTA President

It is been a pleasure being President of the Sundling PTA this year! The support the PTA has received from the parents, staff and volunteers throughout the year has lead to many PTA successes. THANK YOU for your part in making it a great year!  

Things are winding down and by the time this goes to print we will only have the When Pigs Fly event and 8th Grade Activity Day left. Please see the articles further in the newsletter for more information.  

Speaking of 8th Grade Activity Day, congratulations to all of our graduating 8th graders! We wish you the best as you move on to new adventures at your respective high schools.

Finally, I want to say a BIG thank you to the WRS PTA Board and Staff - Debbi Azpuru, Cara Singer, Linda Raby, Karen Detloff, Alison Silver, Stephanie Davis, Jennifer Spitzer, Kari McLennan, Debbie Cook, Gina Streepy, Mary Kay Aronson, John Loessy, Kaitlynn Philbin, Troy McLennan, Jean Choi, Heidi Russell, Mary O’Brien, Beverly Preuss, Reshma Shah, Suzanne Dowd, Robin Murauskis, Chris Daly, Jen Soloway, Bill Soloway, Colleen Butterly, Rosie Lodl, Beth Blazejak, Tamara Byrne, and Jason Dietz!!  The time and effort you have dedicated to enhancing the Sundling experience for the students, parents and staff has been amazing.

Supporting your PTA has never been easier!


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.

If you would like to give a direct donation, click on the 'Donate Now" link below for more information.
