Principal's Message

Dear Medford Elementary Families:

Hard to imagine that we only have 3 more days of school left in the 2020-21 school year!

As we approach the end of the school year, the Medford Elementary staff would like to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have made our way through this most unusual school year. You have been so supportive of our teachers and staff and have remained flexible throughout. We will need to see how things transpire over the summer, but our goal is to prepare over the summer to move into a more normal school year at Medford Elementary for 2021-22.

FYI - Lost and Found items will be moved outside the elementary doors on June 3rd, the last day of school. Please check the tables if you are able to, or have your child check before they leave on Thursday.

Have a great day and enjoy your summer break!

Are you up for Medford Elementary’s Olympic Reading Challenge?

Because it is so important to keep reading over the summer to maintain skills, we are offering a reward in the fall to students that are able to meet our “20 for 60 Challenge!”

The challenge is simple. We are asking you to read at least 20 minutes for at least 60 days of the summer vacation.

Please use the attached calendar to record your reading time. Each time you read for 20 minutes, color in a medal. Then ask your parents to sign the calendar, and bring it to your teacher in the Fall. (If you are participating in another summer reading program, you may use that calendar. We will accept any reading calendar!)

Students that meet this challenge will be invited to an “Outdoor Games” reward party during the first weeks of school. Happy Reading!

Are you looking for a way to keep your child's Math & Language Arts skills sharp over the summer?

Below are some great IXL resources for students and parents this summer.

Upcoming Dates:

May 31: Memorial Day (No School)

June 3: Last Day of School (Enjoy your summer break!)
