Cub Clubs & After School Childcare

Methow Valley Elementary Cub Club

Cub Clubs are seasonal enrichment clubs based at MV Elementary for Grades 1-6. Most are run in partnership with our generous and talented community groups and volunteers including: Methow Arts, The Merc Theater, Classroom in Bloom, Methow Nordic, The Winthrop Ice and Sports Rink, MV Flyfishers, Methow Recycles and MV Riding Unlimited. We are still hoping to add a Chess Club and Lego/Robotics Club.

Please let us know if you’re interested in helping with any of these clubs or you have another club idea you’d like to explore. Contact Katharine Bill, (509) 341-4210.
