Back-to-School Day

Formerly known as Taking Care of Business (TCOB) Day. The school building is open for students to find their new classrooms and meet their teachers. At the same time, PTA representatives are outside in the undercover area to answer any questions. Learn about Medina Elementary PTA and our amazing clubs and programs offered throughout the year. Back to School Day is a one-stop-shop to kick off back to school!

 

This year's Back to School Day is on August 30. Students can see their classrooms and families can meet their teachers. Please wear masks!

 

 


Walk to School Day

National Walk to School Day is the first Wednesday in October. On this day, we are joined by officers of the Medina Police Department, and we all walk to school together! We typically meet at Medina Park (next to the playground), then walk south through the park and along 80th Ave until we reach the school.

 

This year's Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 6!

 


Book Fair

Come shop at our three-day pop-up Scholastic Book Store, set up in the library of Medina Elementary School. All funds raised during the Book Fair go to support the school library. The Book Fair is open before school, during recess, and after school on Tuesday through Thursday of Book Fair week, as well as for Family Night on Wednesday evening.

 

The format of this year's Book Fair is still being determined. Please stay tuned!

 


Field Day

At the end of the school year, students enjoy an afternoon of fun outdoor games and activities organized by parent volunteers.
