ILC Students Move into the “Treehouse,” Launch Construction of Automotive Tech Shop

The MVSD, working in partnership with TwispWorks recently completed the renovation of the home located at 408 Lincoln Street. Located on the TwispWorks campus, the renovated home adjoining the “Bunkhouse,” will now serve as a new schoolhouse to ILC students and staff. Affectionately referred to by ILC students as the “Treehouse,” it will provide the additional space necessary to accommodate the ILC’s steady growth in enrollment.

In addition to the expansion of classroom spaces, ILC students are currently engaged in the research, design, and renovation of the antiquated shop located next to the Treehouse. With the intent of launching the district’s new Automotive Tech Program later this fall, interested students are working under the guidance of Trent Whatley, MVSD CTE instructor, through all phases of the design and construction process.

Anticipating high levels of student interest in the Automotive Tech Program looking forward, interested ILC students are working with local architects to research and develop a long-range plan that includes the construction of a larger facility able to accommodate more student enrollment in the program.

Our students and staff look forward to hosting an open house at a time when conditions allow us to do so safely!

Please join us as we acknowledge TwispWorks, ILC staff, the Methow Valley community (for its generous support of our local levies), and most importantly, our students, for making their dreams a reality – building it from the ground up!
