NHS Seniors Paint Parking Spots

This past weekend the seniors of Indian Creek’s National Honor Society put the finishing touches on their parking spaces in preparation for the start of the school year. This was a new idea proposed by this year’s officers in a meeting over the summer. The purpose of this is to reward the members for all of their hard work and dedication, and to act as an incentive for underclassmen to apply. Each senior got to pick out a space and personalize it however they wanted. A lot of creativity, time and effort were put in to produce these beautiful paintings that show the creative side of each member. Many exciting new things will be coming to the society this year, stay tuned!

Indian Creek Marching Band

The Indian Creek High School marching band has just recently completed another successful week of band camp at West Liberty University. The marching band worked extremely hard all week to have pregame and halftime performances ready for family, friends, and those Redskin football fans on Friday nights. So many memories are made each year. Head majorette and senior, Maria Martin, shared what her experience was like at her very last band camp; “My last year of band camp was emotional, exciting, and definitely the most memorable. I couldn’t have asked for a better class to start off my senior year with. I’ve come to realize they’re more than just my friends in band, they are my second family. I have gotten so close to everyone this year; it makes me appreciate being a part of the band even more. I am proud to be a member of the Indian Creek High School Band. It was also a huge honor to be the head majorette my last year. I am grateful for all the people who have helped me reach this accomplishment. I will never forget all the memories I have made with all these wonderful people at band camp this year. I am very excited to see what my senior year will bring and I will forever hold on to all the great times we’ve had together. My advice for the underclassmen who haven’t experienced their last band camp yet would be to look around and appreciate every moment because you’re gonna wish these times wouldn’t have gone by so fast and you will wanna go back. Band camp is a memory that will turn into a story someday.” The band is 155 members strong, and looking forward to another exciting season of football games, and band festivals. They hope to see everyone at the first football game at Cambridge on August 25!

ICHS NHS DONATES TO CDI

The National Honor Society at ICHS held various fund-raisers throughout the semester to raise funds for The Cancer Dietary Initiative. This food pantry is located in Westminister Church in Steubenville and relies solely on donations. It helps people who are stricken with cancer, get proper nourishment that the donations provide.

The students work hard raising the money and then delivering the goods to the volunteers. This year, ICHS’s NHS raised over 200 dollars for the needed groceries.

CHAUCERIAN PILGRIMAGES

img_0653-1Students in Ms. Dalesio’s  ELA- 12 classes have been studying, “The Canterbury Tales” by Geoffrey Chaucer. To better understand all the literary devices, rhyming couplets, and satire in these tales, students went on “a Chaucerian Pilgrimage.”

Different groups of students had to create their own “modern-day pilgrim” and write a 20 line poem with rhyming couplets. Then, they had to present their poems with a believable re-enactment.

Each member of the group had a different part of participation.screenshot_20161018-131750
