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!


To continue a high-quality public education for our students, VOTE YES three times for the Bellevue School District levies on the February ballot!

The Bellevue School District has more than 20,000 students, and every one of them benefits from the levies. From art, music, band and orchestra for elementary students, to 7th period classes and tutorial for all middle and high school students; from nurses, counselors and technology staff to smartboards, projectors and printers; from shared and individual laptops to major building repairs and buses; from language immersion to gifted and special ed programs – ALL of our students benefit. What’s more, a strong public school system attracts families and businesses creating a strong community and a thriving local economy. We hope you will VOTE YES three times!
