With the end of the school year approaching and summer just around the corner, the Southwest Christian Schools building committee has been making preparations for the summer building improvement projects. To help fund the scheduled projects, SWC is currently holding their annual building fund drive with a goal of $180,000. Your gift to help support the physical structural building needs for both the high school and elementary, may be directly by mail (high school - 550 Elizabeth St., elementary - 210 Elizabeth St) or dropped off at either campus. We thank you for your support to keep the buildings safe and healthy for students and staff as we close out the current school year and look forward to another school year of praising our Heavenly Father together!
