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! 

Scholastic Book Fair

It’s time for one of the favorite events of the year! Please mark your calendar for this year’s Scholastic Book Fair, December 3-5. The fair will be open each day during school, briefly before and after school, and also on Wednesday, December 4, in the evening for Family Night. 

Not only is the Scholastic Book Fair a great opportunity to encourage your student’s love of reading, but it is our sole library specific fundraiser for the year. Through book fair sales, we earn money and books for our library, supplementing the district budget and making our library the amazing one that it is. Your student’s teacher may also have wish list items for you to select for purchase to enhance the class library.. 

A successful book fair requires lots of VOLUNTEERS!  Please consider signing up so that we can keep the fair open for all class and recess times.  There are slots available for set up on Monday, December 3, during school hours that Book Fair is open and on Family Night/Fun Zone on Wednesday, December 4, and for the tear down on Friday, December 6. 

This is a very popular school event and a great volunteer opportunity! You may sign up using this link:

https://volunteer.scholastic.com/#/signup/U3wGFr9T0. We still have 20+ open slots and need your help to successfully run the fair. If you are interested in a cashier role, you must be a PTA member AND there is a tutorial for the new registers we will send you to review.

If you’d like to try for a shift that runs during your child’s library time, please email bookfair@medinapta.org for class schedule information. Thank you!!

New this year is eWallet, an easy way to allow your student to purchase books without sending them to school with cash.  There is no charge to set up an eWallet.  Simply create an account and authorize a spending limit on your credit card.  You must set up an account for each student.  Additional funds can be added at any time and purchases can be tracked.  You are only charged for what is purchased (up to the spending limit).  Visit our webpage https://www.scholastic.com/bf/medina and select the “get started” button to sign up. 

We truly appreciate your support for our Book Fair!  If you have any questions or need help signing up, reach out to us at bookfair@medinapta.org.
