Wintermeister: One of Seven Peaks’ unique elective Offerings
As an independent school, Seven Peaks School has a very unique “electives” model. Because they are able to offer arts, music, language and athletics on a daily basis (instead of being offered as “extras”, the elective offerings are designed to help kids explore other unique enrichment activities like website development, restaurant design, film editing…etc. Because students also have a rigorous academic load, Friday afternoons are specifically designated for these electives. One of our most popular electives is Wintermeister.
What is Wintermeister?
Wintermeister is one of the highlights of the middle school experience at Seven Peaks! During the 3rd quarter elective rotation from January 6 through March 17, 2017, students who select Wintermeister as an elective meet on Fridays at Mt. Bachelor for an afternoon of either Nordic or alpine skiing. This elective encourages students to stay physically active by offering an opportunity to do so in a way that is fun and exciting. SPS staff members supervise students on the mountain, and students and staff benefit from the chance to connect outside of the classroom setting.
