Capital Campaign 2018


Dear Medina Community,
 
As you know, our first major fundraiser of the year, the Capital Campaign kicked off almost two weeks ago. Thursday is the official last day to make donations and return your bright envelopes to school.  We have given out the prizes to students who returned their envelope or whose parents made online donations through Monday. As we receive and are able to count returns, we will continue to give the prizes to the teachers to deliver to your students.
 
If you have participated, THANK YOU! We will be including families and the tiers at which they donated in our next Byte and on the website.
 
If you have not yet returned your envelope making a donation to the Medina Elementary PTA and its work in supporting the school in helping our children reach their educational goals and our community programming such as World Culture Week this month, we encourage you to do so. As we described in the paper we sent with the envelope, our budget to offer all the services that set Medina apart is $337,000.
 
Our goal is to have 100% participation of our families and try to raise over half that budgeted amount. This equates to $400 per student. While we understand that some can donate more and some less, we appreciate any and all contributions to our overall goal. These funds are what pay for our classroom commitments to the school, the technology program, community programs as well as our ability to fundraise successfully. We ask you to support our teachers and support our school. We cannot provide all the services without your help! Please join us.
 
While tomorrow is the official last day, we will accept envelopes all year round in the office and online donations will stay open for another week as we know the 4-day weekend makes it hard to get everything done this week. Our final envelope collection for the prizes will be next Friday 11/16 and we will hand out the prizes the following week. We will keep our Thank You list running for the next few Bytes and on the website so that we can honor all who are helping the PTA in its goals to give our children the best educational experience possible.
 
Thank you!

Medina Elementary School’s World Culture Night

 

THANK YOU MEDINA COMMUNITY for a marvelous World CultureNight! 

We talked and we laughed together - We shared food and drinks together - and it touched our hearts!

What an amazing World Culture night with 24 countries represented! The tables, food, displays, art, and clothing were simply gorgeous. A HUGE thank you to i-Connect who collaborated with Community Outreach Committee this year to host this event.  We also want to reach out with special thanks to every family that came to share their culture with us, our teaching staff and custodians that stayed and gave a helping hand on the night. A special mention to our awesome Miss Muller - this event has been her passion for a number of years, and it truly brings her joy to see our diverse community come together as one.

Book Fair!

seamless_pattern_books.jpg
 

This year’s Scholastic Book Fair, is December 4-6. The fair will be open each day before, during and after school and also on Wednesday, December 5, in the evening for Family Night. Not only is Book Fair a great opportunity to encourage your student’s love of reading, but it is our sole library specific fundraiser for the year. Scholastic donates back to our school a portion of the proceeds of all sales, which allows us to supplement the district budget for books and make our library the amazing one that it is.   This year, by having our book fair the first week of December, we are receiving a 10% bonus on our proceeds. 

A successful book fair requires lots of VOLUNTEERS!  We will need help with set up on Monday, December 3, as well as during the school hours that Book Fair is open, Family Night/Fun Zone on Wednesday, December 5, and tear-down on Friday, December 7.  This is a very popular school event and a great volunteer opportunity!  Please click to sign up  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090a45aea72ca02-medina.  If you’d like to try for a shift that runs during your child’s library time, please email rebeccajohnston@hotmail.com for class schedule information.  We have lots of shifts available to fit your schedule.
