XC Sweeps District
Congratulations to the Southwest Christian School Cross Country program for sweeping district! Every single team - MS boys and girls, JV boys and girls, Varsity boys and girls - won the 2014 District Title! Across all 6 teams, we had a combined 29 runners place in the top 10 of their races.
We are proud of each and every runner in our program due to their hard work after school in the Texas heat, the way that they encouraged everyone on the team every day, and for running tough this entire season. Their hard work paid off!
The Varsity boys and girls head down to Waco on Saturday, October 25, for the TAPPS 4A state meet. The girls will run at 11AM and the boys will run at 11:30AM. Good job, Eagles, and good luck!

Savage Selected for Save the Children Advocacy Summit
For the second consecutive year, Southwest Christian School is very proud to announce that a member from our school was selected as a Save the Children Advocacy Summit Scholarship recipient. Junior Lauren Savage was one of only twenty-three students from across the nation chosen for this prestigious honor. Application criteria included a series of essays written to convey the candidate's interest in humanitarian relief as well as a letter of recommendation from a sponsor teacher. Lauren's passion for service to her country and service to underdeveloped nations was exemplified in her application. She aspires to attend the USAF Academy and become a fighter pilot. While on deployment, Lauren hopes to assist those in need and effect change in these underserved regions. Lauren traveled with her sponsor, Mrs. Kim Chaulk, on an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. While there, Lauren had the opportunity to meet and discuss issues of concern with individuals such as Andrea Mitchell, host of MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports and Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent, NBC News; Kevin Madden, CNN commentator and senior advisor/spokesman for the Romney 2012 presidential campaign; Stephanie Cutter, host of CNN's Crossfire and deputy campaign manager for the Obama 2012 presidential campaign; Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education; Senator John Boozman (R-AZ); Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA); Representative Richard Hanna (R-NY); Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT); Raj Shah, USAID Administrator; Dr. Tom McInerny, President of the American Academy of Pediatrics; Cokie Roberts, political commentator of ABC news and senior news analyst of NPR; and Bridgit Mendler, actress and platinum-selling recording artist. Lauren noted that the highlight of the trip was having the opportunity to advocate for children's rights with members of Congress from her home state (Granger, Johnson, McCaul, and Weber) and tell them how her school had nurtured her passion through its partnership with international, domestic, and local organizations (Minimester, JWAC, Samaritan Purse, to name a few). SCS is very proud of Lauren and her numerous achievements; we recognize that she has a very bright future ahead of her and are eager to hear about her future accomplishments.

Elementary Arts Academy
The Elementary Arts Academy is an educational opportunity for students in grades 4-6 that essentially extends the school day. Students will be instructed in the arts in addition to the core instruction offered in the curricular day. This is a wonderful opportunity for elementary students interested in furthering their education in Music, Theatre, and/or Studio. The Academy aligns with our K-12 SCS Fine Arts instruction and programming.
Elementary Fine Arts develops disciplines which stimulate creative and organic expression. Students express and refine their creativity through works of art, both visual and in performance, critical thinking of the arts, and a cultural awareness of the world around them with Christ at the center.
