Cub Clubs & After School Childcare

Methow Valley Elementary Cub Club

Cub Clubs are seasonal enrichment clubs based at MV Elementary for Grades 1-6. These after-school clubs are offered free of charge, thanks to funding assistance from the Public School Funding Alliance! 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.

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.
