International Baccalaureate discussion
Parents, students and interested members of the public are invited to a meeting to learn about the International Baccalaureate program under consideration by the Methow Valley School District. The district is looking at two levels — the primary-years program for first through sixth grade and a middle-years program for seventh through 10th grade.
The meeting is next Wednesday (Feb. 11) from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose room at Methow Valley Elementary School. Child care will be provided. Contact the district office at 996-9205 to reserve a space.
Dr. Raleigh Bowden offers a free, two-part class called “Listening Lessons” on Feb. 18 and Feb. 25 from 4-5:30 p.m.
The class is geared toward caregivers, guardian angels, families and couples looking for practical skills to improve communication. A two-part series, the course will build on practical and light-hearted information, in-class practice and homework assignments.
The size of the group will determine the location of the class.
Bowden has been working for 25 years to increase communication in families facing difficult health challenges. She is the founder of the Lookout Coalition. This is the third series Bowden has taught in the Methow Valley “to caregivers or anyone who cares about someone — which includes everybody,” she said.
