Welcome to Medina Elementary PTA website!

 

Pick Up the Phone to Go All In For Kids!

More that 200 volunteers are needed to make calls during the Foundation's annual Phonathon! Gifts made during the Phonathon fund important programs and activities that make a difference for every student in Bellevue's schools.

Volunteering is a great way to learn about the Foundation and meet others who care about public education. Training is provided and food will be available for all volunteers. Share the opportunity with high school students and clubs as well. It's a great way to obtain community service hours.

Calls: Nov 3-6 (Mon-Thurs) 5:00 - 8:30 pm each day

Mailing Party: Nov 10 (Monday), start time 10:00 am, may go until 3:00 pm

Interested? Contact your school's ambassador or Megan Elmer to learn more or sign up.

Flu Clinic at Medina Elementary
We have a flu clinic scheduled at Medina Elementary on October 27th from 7:00-8:00 a.m. If parents would like their children to receive the vaccine, they MUST be present with their child. Parents are also welcome to get a flu shot. Rite Aid will be providing the shots and will bill insurance. Nurse Jean needs to know how many people will be coming by October 21st so she can let Rite Aid know. To move the line along, please pick up the screening questionnaire from Nurse Jean's office in advance, complete it, and have copy of your insurance card ready to attach to the questionnaire. If this day and time does not work for your family, there will be a flu shot clinic at Bellevue High School on Tuesday, October 21st from 2:30-6:30 p.m. Visiting Nurse Services will be providing those shots and will bill insurance. For more information on either clinic or to RSVP to either clinic, email Nurse Jean at BrockenbroughJ@bsd405.org, or you can sign up on the sheet in her office at school.
