Hi Medina,

This is Ethan. I went to school at Medina Elementary. 

My Destination Imagination Team, which is composed of four seventh graders are planning a big holiday fundraiser party to raise money and awareness for the 10,000 plus foster children in Washington State. This is our second fundraiser party. We did one two years ago and raised over $4500 which we donated to Treehouse in Seattle. Treehouse is an organization that provides foster children with clothes, books, toys, academic tutoring and mentoring.  We are hoping this year to raise $6000.

The event will be held at BelPres Church in December 14th from 10 am to 12 pm. This is such a good cause and we really want to do a great job. We hope Medina Elementary families will join us!

Best regards,  


Wise Camps
STEM Day Camp at Newport High School

On Monday, November 11th, there is no school due to Veteran's Day. We are offering a fun day of STEM activities at Newport High School for students in grades 3-6 (and have a Red, White & Blue chemistry demonstration to honor Veterans!). The day camp will take place from 8:30-3:30 p.m. with drop off beginning as early as 7:30 a.m. and pick up by 4:30 p.m. The cost is $150. More details and registration at


Last year, Cub Scouts from Medina Elementary School built and raced cars, rockets, and boats, built models, practiced archery, hiked, camped, biked, swam, practiced first aid, visited a fire station, helped distribute food to the needy, had a sleepover at the zoo, scooted around in a giant hamster ball, went fishing, and much more. And this year will be even better.

Best of all, our Pack welcomes all boys. There are no tryouts. No cuts. We encourage boys to try new things, meet new friends, and push their limits in a supportive, no-bullying environment. The Cub Scout motto is “Do your best” and we strive to help our Scouts fulfill this promise.

You can join anytime during the school year. Check out our calendar at and join us for a meeting, event, or adventure. Go places. Do stuff. Be part of the fun and adventure of Cub Scouts. For more information, visit, or contact John Franck (
