Join us! 

We invite you to join Medina PTA! Becoming a member shows:

  • your support for the education and well-being of all children. Our goal is 100% membership among parents - a larger membership means a stronger legislative voice at the national, state, and local levels with:
    • National PTA, the oldest child advocacy organization in the nation,
    • Washington State PTA, the largest nonprofit, volunteer organization in the state, and
    • Bellevue PTSA Council, which supports local school PTAs in the Bellevue School District
  • your appreciation for the efforts of Medina PTA to enrich the school: from the programs/events we sponsor, to the popular after-school clubs that we organize, and to the fundraisers we plan which help close public school funding gaps via grants to the school for teacher aides, technology support, field trips, supplies and much more.

Common misconceptions

I have to volunteer if I join the PTA.

Volunteering is completely optional, as is serving in any leadership position. 

 

I only have to purchase a membership once. 

Memberships are annual. You must purchase a new membership every year to keep your membership current.

 

Only parents can join the PTA.

Any adult who wants to support our children and Medina Elementary can join the PTA, including: working and stay-at-home parents, teachers, staff, grandparents, other extended family members, and community members.
