Christian School Honors

The past few weeks have been busy for the students and teachers of the Show-Me Christian School. We have celebrated both their academic and athletic accomplishments from the past year. Nearly all of our students participate in organized sports here at our main campus in La Monte. This past year, we had teams that competed in Girls Volleyball, Boys and Girls Basketball, Archery, Track & Field, and Girls Softball. Our annual athletic banquet honored all of the hard work each of our athletes put in throughout the year. Some of our feature awards were: giving out six new varsity letter jackets, scholar athlete awards, given to students who participated in three sports while maintaining a 3.0 grade average, and we honored our Girls State Champion Track  & Field Team from 2017 with a special commemorative plaque.

We also honored all of our students at our annual academic banquet. During this banquet, each student is recognized with a Christ-like character trait. Teachers evaluate each student’s performance throughout the year, choosing the trait that the student most showed throughout the year. Each student really looks forward to hearing the trait each of their teachers sees in them. Some of the other honors given throughout the evening include: Supervisor’s Student award, given to the highest performing student in each classroom, three new inductions into the National Christian Honor Society, given to high school students who achieve not only high grades, but maintain high character, and Bible Memorization medals are given to students who memorized every monthly memory verses. 41 out of 45 of our students earned this medal.

We are proud of all of our kids, and all of their God-given talents! We cannot wait to see what the next school year holds.

The 2016 Troy Culler Memorial Basketball Tournament

The NCAA may have it’s March Madness, but church basketball teams in the Midwest will not be left out. The Troy Culler Memorial Basketball Tournament sponsored by Show-Me Christian Youth Home will give players of all ages the opportunity to compete.

This is the 13th year for the tournament held in La Monte, MO at Show-Me Christian Youth Home.  Eight teams from Missouri, Kansas & Iowa compete in a double elimination tournament.

Due to popular demand, Show-Me Christian Youth Home, will hold two tournaments at our main campus in La Monte, Missouri on:

  • Saturday, February 27th
  • Saturday, March 19th.

This tournament started in memory of Troy Culler, a Show-Me’s employee, who died in a car accident in June of 1998.  Troy was an avid sports fan and athlete, having been a member of the Central Missouri State University Mules 1990 MIAA Baseball championship team.  He had run the Show-Me basketball tournament a few times himself.  After his death, Development Director, Phil Marley and Executive Directors, Gale & Karen Culler continued the tournament as a way to honor Troy.

The dedicated teams make a special effort to be a part of this tournament. Forum Christian Church from Columbia, Missouri has played in the Troy Culler Memorial Tournament for over 10 years.   Grinnell Christian Church team members travel all the way from Grinnell, Iowa to get their shot at winning the trophy.

Teams will be seeded by their placement in the tournament last year and then in the order that your $150 tournament donation is received. It is desired that players are associated with the church or ministry for which they are playing. This activity can be an excellent tool to disciple new Christians, but we will rely upon your best judgment in recruiting players.

These tournaments fill up fast so if you are interested, please contact me at 660-909-3294 or judi.crawford@showmekids.org. We look forward to this opportunity to meet the players, their families and fans.
