“Schools Don’t Reopen Schools, Communities Reopen Schools”

Students mountain biking at Sun MountainThe MVSD is excited to announce its preliminary plan to initiate weekly school-sponsored Learning Pods (K-6), Academic Tutor Services (7-12), Club Activities (K-6), and the formation of the newly established Mountain Lion Club (7-12). Below is a brief description of each activity. More information will be forthcoming following the start of the new school year.

Learning Pods

Open to interested students in grades K through 6, MVSD-sponsored Learning Pods, led by dedicated and trained community members, will meet on Wednesdays, outside, for a half-day at school. They will be organized into small groups by grade level. During their time together, students will engage in hands-on activities in science, art, and movement; receive support on classroom learning progress, and safely interact with their peers. Priority will be given to students enrolled in any option (hybrid, remote, or REACH) who are not yet committed to an independent learning group outside of school. Transportation and meals will be provided. More information regarding registration will be forthcoming. Questions? Please contact Katharine Bill at: kbill@methow.org

Academic Tutoring Services

Open to ILC and LBHS students in grades 7-12, students will be provided access to 1:1 and small group academic tutoring services. Facilitated by LBHS/Harvard Graduate, Liam Daily, students will work with their advisor, teachers, guidance counselor, and/or student success coordinator to schedule dates and times to access tutoring services. Questions? Please contact MVSD Guidance Counselor, Erika Spellman at: espellman@methow.org

Cub Club

Cub Club consists of high interest, small group, seasonal enrichment activities that take place after school at MVE involving students in grades K-6. These after-school clubs are offered free of charge, thanks to funding assistance from the Public School Funding Alliance. Most clubs are facilitated by our generous and talented community groups and volunteers. Transportation services are available to the Winthrop (Red Barn) and Twisp (Community Center). Questions? Please contact Family and Community Engagement Coordinator, Katharine Bill at: kbill@methow.org

Mountain Lion Club

The MVSD is thrilled to offer many new clubs and activities designed for students in grades 7-12 this fall. Led by knowledgeable and conscientious community members, these high interest clubs will provide interested LBHS and ILC students with opportunities to try new activities or refine existing skills, all in a safe, supportive, and fun environment. Conducted almost exclusively outside, our fall clubs have been selected with social distancing in mind and will take place after school on the MVSD Campus. Examples of fall clubs currently being considered include: Old School Strength and Conditioning, Audiovisual Production Club, Mountain Biking Club, Fiction Workshop, Disc Golf, and Olympic Weightlifting.

Registration will be available via FamilyID; look for an email with more detailed information about each activity and a link for registration. In addition, students are encouraged to come check out our Club Fair during lunch on Tuesday or Thursday during the first week of school. Questions? Please contact LBHS Activities Director, Michael Wilbur at: mwilbur@methow.org

Please join us as we thank the Public School Funding Alliance (PSFA), our many educational partners, and community volunteers for enriching the lives of our youth!
