Things You Should Know...
Congratulations to the SWMCH Girls Basketball team for their 5th place finish at the MN State Basketball Tournament!
Trap/Skeet Shooting Anyone?
Our Trap Shooting coaches are reminding everyone about the upcoming spring trap season. We will more than likely shoot on Saturday again this year, cost would be the same at $16.00 per week. We are looking for new members so if you know of anyone who would like to shoot, please have them contract one of the coaches: Ron Krosschell, Marv Kuipers, Kevin Caspersen. The SW team is registered for the spring league so the competition is getting ready to shoot.

Reflections From Within
In several classes recently we have talked about how difficult it is to avoid misusing language. We tend to get lazy about our speech, whether that be using it correctly or keeping it appropriate. Then a few days ago I read a meditation that expressed how precious language is.
John Piper, in his book A Godward Heart, looks at the “The Precious Gift of Baby Talk.” In the chapter by that title, Piper addresses how God uses human language, which is really quite beneath him, to reveal himself to us. Piper goes on to show how even though this language is baby talk for God, we should not then “treat it with contempt or carelessness.”
How often we get lazy and start to revert to behaviors from our past, when we “spoke like a child, … thought like a child, ...reasoned like a child.” Pray with me that we can put away childish things and use language appropriately, for God’s glory.
SCHOOL HEADLINES (click a headline to read the story)
Once again Mr. Vanderaa's students have written Psalms. Please be sure to check them out on the Education in Action page.
Southwest MN Christian High (SWMCH) and Edgerton Christian Elementary (ECES) societies approved a shared administrative structure. They have been evaluating the idea for a year and have now received approval from both school societies to move forward with a shared administrative structure between SWC and ECES, including a Head of Schools and part-time Director of Learning starting in the 2016-2017 school year.
The boards at ECES and SWMCH have named Mr. Randy Pfeifle the Head of Schools. He will be based out of the SWMCH campus and will direct the vision, finances, and administration of the two schools.
Mr. John Top has been hired as Director of Learning and Principal at ECES. Mr. Top will assume the day-to-day duties at ECES and oversee K-12 education across both schools.
