 Medina Elementary PTA Auction 2018

A good time was had by all at Saturday night's 20th anniversary Medina Auction "A Roaring Good Time!". A special thank you to Britta Bacon and Jaclyn Schwartz for planning this amazing night of community and fundraising. This event is budgeted to bring in over 2/3 of the funds needed to provide all of the enhancements we provide for our children. The Medina PTA spends approximately $675 per student to provide the programs, events and clubs that our PTA sponsors.
If you were unable to attend the auction or wish to make a donation, please click the button below. And thank you for your support. We would not be able to reach our goals without your generosity and volunteer hours.

Now is a great opportunity to list some of the many offerings of our Medina PTA.
Perhaps our greatest contributions to our children's education, however, are the four main grants that we provide to Medina Elementary. These include: Curriculum Enhancements including bringing in the Toymaker, author visits, field trips and in class software programs, our Integrated Technology Program that provides integrated tech in the classroom as well as free before and after school classes for all grades, Professional Staff Development to assist our staff in becoming board certified and learning what they need to in order to become the best in their fields and lastly, though certainly not least, almost twice as many hours for our Instructional Aides, so that our children have the benefit of lower staff to student ratios for a safer, more fulfilling educational experience.
We have various clubs/classes such as math club, drama classes, Destination Imagination as well as the largest elementary aged chess club in the state. We run free to the Medina community programs that include summer playdates, beginning of the year parent grade brunches, World Culture Night (April), STEM Week (April), the ice cream social, auction info carnival night, iConnect and other parent education meetings and speakers, movie nights, field day (June), mother/son sports day (May), talent show (May) and two largely attended chess tournaments a year that are open to the greater community. We also sponsor self funded programs such as bringing in the Missoula Children's Theatre experience, the father/daughter dance, Mariners and Sounders Family nights, Math Adventure night, Mom's/Dad's Night Out and our Dance-a-thon fundraiser. We have a healthy staff appreciation program to let our staff know that we appreciate the hard work they do with our children every single day and our volunteers manage a highly successful Book Fair each year to provide funds for the library.
All this, and the coming together of community and being a part of something bigger, is what sets the Medina PTA apart. And we in turn, in collaboration with the school administration, help make Medina Elementary the enhanced educational experience that it is for our children.
Thank you,
Tracy and Anita

Parent Safety Forum and Student Pick Up
1.       Parent Safety forum:   Next week, Wednesday March 21st, 8:30-9:30, in the library, we will host a Parent Safety Forum with Doug James, Director of Security, Bellevue School District.  Please join us to hear about our district and school safety procedures and protocols.  Coffee and cookies will be provided.
2.       After school student pick up:   After 2:45 all students remaining outside should move into the main office for supervision until parents arrive.  The office does close by 3:00.  Should you know you will be a few minutes late, please let your student know they should join us in the office after 2:45 to wait for your pick up.  We have had some recent concerns with students playing on the field and other locations on campus, unsupervised.  Their safety is of utmost importance to us.  We appreciate your partnership in your timely after school pick up.  

Nominating Committe

 As we enter the second half of the year, we are already looking towards next year's PTA board. We need a nominating committee to find the dedicated individuals who will serve on next year's Executive Committee and Board of Directors. If you are interested in either being on the Nominating Committee or being involved on the Board or in a Committee Chair position, please

The programs and events can't be done without you all! We need people driven to making our school a better place for our children to get involved!  

Bellevue School Foundation

What is Bellevue Schools Foundation and how does it help Medina kids?

Bellevue Schools Foundation (BSF) is an independent nonprofit that supports the educational mission of Bellevue School District. BSF funds specific projects for individual schools, including Medina, and also works district-wide to develop new curricula that meaningfully improve the education our kids receive throughout their time in Bellevue schools. Among other projects, BSF is currently working on creating integrated K–12 computer science/computational thinking curricula—an effort that would make Bellevue among the first in the nation to have a unified computer science teaching plan that builds knowledge in this important field as students progress through their education. BSF is also directly funding special Medina Elementary experiences this year, such as: visits with acclaimed authors (Oliver Chinn for grades K-2; Dan Gemeinhart for grades 3-5); unique theatrical performances about immigration (grade 3), the 19th century gold rush (grade 4), and the American Revolution (grade 5); and for our upper grade art classes, a chance to learn directly from a glass artist and then create their own glass-fused tiles. To learn more about BSF or its current projects, or to get involved in supporting BSF and its mission, please contact Jessica Rossman (
