We Want to Hear From You!

As you are likely aware, the Methow Valley School District, in partnership with Little Star and Room One have launched a “Comprehensive Needs Assessment” as part of the Methow Valley Early Childhood Education and Childcare Initiative. This week a team of consultants paid for by a local grant facilitated a series of 1:1 interviews and focus groups throughout our community. In addition, they facilitated two Early Childhood Education and Childcare Community Conversations, one in Twisp and one in Winthrop. We want to thank those of you who participated in an interview, focus group or one of the two Community Conversations.

Join a Focus Group!

There are several more opportunities to participate. If you have a child or children between the age/s of 0 and 10 years old, and would like to participate in a focus group, please email methowkids@gmail.com or call 509-997-8862.

You will receive a $25 gift certificate from Hanks, in addition to the good feeling knowing you have weighed in on an important issue.
