Welcome to Medina Elementary PTA website!

 

IT’S AUCTION RAFFLE TIME!

Raffle tickets will be on sale at all next week, January 27 - 30, after school!  This will be your only opportunity to purchase raffle tickets at school, plus it’s an easy way to support our fundraising, especially if you cannot attend the auction. Don’t miss your opportunity for a chance to win these awesome prizes!

Tickets are $20 each and you can choose to enter one of these amazing raffles with each ticket:

Fujitsu Lifebook U904

Gordon James Diamond Jewelers $1000 Gift Certificate

Two 2015 Seahawks Tickets (Charter Seats) + Parking 

Winners will be drawn at the auction on February 7 and you do not need to be present to win. Please remember, those under 18 years old may not purchase raffle tickets. 

CAN YOU LEND A HELPING HAND?

If you have an hour or more to spare this Tuesday, January 27 between 9-12, we’d love your help at our first auction work party!  ‘Work’ is a loose term – come to the home of our auction chair, Leslie Feller, for coffee, community and some auction-related craft projects (think pre-school level J).  If you know how to use a pair of scissors or a glue stick then this is your kind of work party!  Address is in the directory or you can email auction@medinapta.org.  Hope to see many of you there.

Also, we are looking for 10-12 more volunteers to help out the night of the auction.  The commitment is only during the silent auction, so even if you are attending, you will be finished in time to enjoy dinner and the Live auction.  Please email auction@medinapta.org if you can help out!
