We support Medina Elementary School in the Bellevue School District

Together we build a feeling of community and provide programs, and activities that help enhance our children's education!


 Golden Acorn

The Golden Acorn Award is presented by local PTAs to volunteers in recognition of their exemplary and outstanding service. The Medina Elementary PTA awards this honor to volunteers who are “graduating” from Medina Elementary with their 5th grade students. Recognizing individuals who go above and beyond in supporting our children is a great way to acknowledge how much their service matters. If you would like to nominate a volunteer for his or her dedicated service in support of students, send your nomination to president@medinapta.org by Friday, 5/25. Please be sure to include a brief summary of why you believe the volunteer should be recognized and any PTA positions they may have held.

Community Appreciation Breakfast


Supporting Kids Through Tough Times

 Trauma Informed Care & Restorative Practices

How do we help our kids deal with the stress of modern challenges—from the isolation of social media and the impact of national tragedies, to racism, personal trauma, and more? Join Bellevue Schools Foundation and CJ Ellsworth of Sea Mar Community Health Center for a discussion of what we can do as parents and community members who care about our youth.

Saturday, June 2, from 10-11:30 a.m.

Highland Middle School, 15027 Bel-Red Rd, Bellevue
(light refreshments provided, childcare available)

Parents and community members who attend this event will learn about ways to better support children through our current challenging times, and how to reduce their stress by teaching their caregivers and support systems tools to help them through these issues.

This event is free and open to the public;  please register at this link.

CJ Ellsworth, MA, LMFT, CMHS will lead the information session and discussion; Mrs. Ellsworth is a Program Manager and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist & Supervisor, in Child & Family Behavioral Health program at Sea Mar Community Health Center. This session is funded by King County’s Best Starts for Kids grant.
