Welcome to Medina Elementary PTA website!

It’s procurement time and we need your help! Please fill out a procurement form and turn it into the office or fill out the form online. Any Medina Elementary family who has donated by December 19th will be entered in a drawing for a night out in Bellevue – including an overnight at the Hyatt and dinner!  Please take a look at our WISH LIST for inspiration or if you need help getting started, check out our HOW TO document.  Both the Wish List and How To flyers were sent home Friday, so check out your child’s folders & backpacks for some easy night time reading! 

In addition, if you are associated with a business that would be interesting in sponsoring our event, please contact for further information.  We have several sponsorship levels available!

 Baskets that THRIVE!  

Thriv Auction Reminder:  Please check out the email from your room parent last week about your grade-level Auction basket.  We’re suggesting a donation of $25 per child to help us lavishly fill these unique themes. Cash or check to ‘Medina PTA’ can be placed in the auction basket envelope outside your child’s class.

Music in the Schools
Tuesday, November 25th, 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
WISC - Rainier Room

Research consistently shows a strong correlation between participation in music programs and high academic achievement. Music education also provides students with many benefits outside the classroom. Join Visual & Performing Arts Curriculum Developer Mark Wilbert to learn about the opportunities available for music education in Bellevue schools, how our music programs compare to others across the country, and why music is such an important part of a well-rounded education.

Complimentary lunch will be provided by the Bellevue Schools Foundation. Please register in advance at

This event is part of Education Connections, a speaker series put on for the community by the Bellevue Schools Foundation.
