Presidents' Message


Hello Medina Community,


Hope you all had a nice long weekend!


Can’t believe that we only have only 19 school days left in the year. Please have your kids join in the fun of the last school days with our ABC countdown!


Yearbook orders are due by June 1st. Make sure that you order before the deadline to guarantee a copy for your kid.


Please mark your calendar for our last General Assembly meeting of the year, which will be Thursday June 6 at 6 pm in the Art Room. We will have a supervised movie night for our kids in the Multi Purpose room. We will be voting on next year's board members and next year's budget, as well as presenting our Golden Acorn awards to parents who have been active volunteers and who will be graduating out with their students.


Have a great week!


Jessica Shao
