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 Tuesday, August 30th. Students can see their classrooms and families can meet their teachers.
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 5th! More details will be released in The Byte.
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.
At the end of the school year, students enjoy an afternoon of fun outdoor games and activities organized by parent volunteers.
Summer Play Dates
Join fellow Medina Elementary families for play dates at Medina Park or Medina Beach Park before the start of the school year. We typically host at least one play date per grade.
Back-to-School Parent Brunches
This annual tradition gives parents an opportunity to meet other parents in your child's grade level and catch up with old friends. Parents only, one event per grade, hosted by a parent.
Ice Cream Social
Make your own sundae! Held at the beginning of the school year, this event lets you reconnect with old friends and make new ones. This event is for parents and students, at school (outside).
World Culture Night
World Culture Night is a yearly celebration of the many cultures and ethnicities shared at Medina Elementary. Medina Elementary has a vibrant, rich, and diverse community and World Culture Night is a great opportunity to appreciate each other’s cultural and creative offerings via food and general information sharing.
Students showcase their talents at our talent show, Medina's Got Talent. Acts typically include musical acts, dancing, and other amazing performances!
The format for 2021-2022 is still being determined. Please stay tuned!
Everyone is invited to join our fantasy football league! Play for fun, bragging rights, and to connect with other Medina families. It's FREE to join and the winner receives a prize!
