Our mission is to educate children and instill in our students a love of learning and the abilities to think critically, live ethically, and appreciate the value of each individual.

WOW (Wonderful Outdoor Winter Program)

The McGillis Wonderful Outdoor Winter (WOW) program provides all students in grades 1-8 an opportunity to try a new winter sport or increase their ability at a winter sport they already enjoy. This is a glimpse of the program: 

  • The Wonderful Outdoor Winter (WOW) program takes place on Thursday afternoons for four weeks:  January 26, February 2, February 9, and February 16.  
  • All students in grades 1-8 commit to one activity for the entire four weeks. Kindergarten students participate in WOW-like activities that are woven into their school days during these four weeks.
  • WOW activities encompass about half of the school day.  Some activities extend past the end of the school day.  
  • A variety of winter activities are offered including nordic skiing, snowshoeing/hiking, ice skating, hockey, alpine skiing, snowboarding, and Utah Olympic Park training.
  • Multiple faculty chaperone each activity.
  • A sport clinic on campus is offered free of cost while all others require a financial commitment.
