We have many great extra-curricular options for students at MVE this school year! Cub Club and other enrichment activities for students change seasonally, so check back often for the most updated information. These after-school clubs are offered free of charge, thanks to our wonderful supporters at Methow Arts and Methow Valley 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. Many thanks to our community partners who help support learning outside the classroom! Please let us know if you’re interested in helping or have another club idea you’d like to explore.
