WRS Intramural Permission Form 2022/23
In order for students to participate, parents will need to complete the online form below. This form will need to be completed for any intramural sport (but once completed, will cover the entire school year), so it would be a good idea to complete and submit even if you think your child may want to participate.
We look forward to getting our programs up and running very soon!
An Intramural Emergency Google Form must be completed by parent before participating.

News from the NEW Sundling Library
After a long summer of renovation and remodeling, the Sundling Library is now open! Student library orientations are underway, with our Library Innovation Teacher (LIT) Mrs. K. Burns. All Sundling students are learning about and enjoying the new layout, flexible seating, and innovation the space has to offer. If you haven’t checked out our Sundling Library website bit.ly/SundlingLibrary, please do. There are a variety of resources for students and parents, as well as news and information about library happenings. Save the date for September 6-9 for the Sundling Scholastic Book Fair. Students will be able to shop during the week and families are invited to visit the new Sundling Library during Parent Orientation on Thursday September 8th.

WRS Parent Orientation- 9/8/22
We hope you and your child have enjoyed a wonderful start to the 2019-20 school year! In an effort to continue the Sundling tradition of a Connected Learning Community, we invite you to our Parent Orientation on Thursday, September 8, 2022 at 6:00 PM. It is an opportunity for you to meet your child’s teachers and hear more about the programs and offerings available to them here at Sundling. Due to limited parking, we recommend that you arrive early and carpool when possible.
Please note that you will have the opportunity to follow your child’s daily learning schedule, and hear from the academic team of teachers regarding team guidelines and plans for the year. You will begin the night in your child’s Period 1 class. In order to assist you with the layout of the building and schedule of events, we have copied a building map to the back of this sheet and dedicated eighth grade Peer Mentors available in the halls to assist you throughout the night. During your child’s scheduled lunch period, please feel free to visit our newly renovated Library or our Cafeteria/Commons for snacks provided by our wonderful Sundling PTA. While in the Cafeteria/Commons, please be sure to sign up and become a member of our PTA or make a direct donation to support our school. Also, please be sure to visit the WRS PTA Scholastic Book Fair in the Library to purchase great independent reads and more for the new school year. On your way out, be on the lookout for food trucks in the main lot to take home dinner or a snack! A portion of the proceeds will go back to support the WRS PTA and our school.
We look forward to a wonderful evening and a productive year of teaching and learning! #stronger4ever
