It’s that time of year again! The ICHS Drama Club is performing their second annual winter play, “We wish vous a Merry Christmas”, written by our very own Mrs. Bolen. The winter play in summary is about a school that takes a field trip to Paris over Winter break, where they will have their big Christmas dance on Christmas Eve. Jackson just wants to find love and as he finds out, it is not as easy as it seems. Moe has every girl in the school after him, but he could care less. Madame is a hopeless romantic and as she thinks, she may have just found the one (maybe). As for the rest, you will have to come and find out for yourself! The play will be conducted by Mrs. Olson, with help from Mrs. Bolen and stage crew manager, Mr. Elliot. The play will be Thursday, December 20th at 7:30 in the Band Room. The Drama Club has put in hard work and dedication into this, so please come and support the Arts!

Our Indian Creek Choir also has a performance coming up. The ICHS Choir will be performing their Christmas concert at Wintersville Elementary School on Monday, December 17th at 7:00. They will be singing songs including: Holiday Road, Mele Kalikimaka, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Once Upon a December, and a special performance of Silent Night. The entrance cost is free, but they will be taking donations at the door. Please come out and enjoy some great live music!                  Mimi Beatty


Eighteen Points By: Chelsea Connor …….. Many students reading this already know that we have to receive a minimum of eighteen points from the seven end- of- course tests to graduate from high school. For each of the seven required exams, a student can earn anywhere from a 1-5 graduation points. A student must earn at least four points on both the end of course English and Math test. A student must earn at least six points on the Science and Social Studies test. To some students,this isn’t a big deal, but for others, it can be very challenging to earn these eighteen points. Some students struggle to earn all the points due to: having trouble with test anxiety or not being as confident in some subjects such as, Math, English, or other subjects. The good news about the eighteen points is that a high score from one test can balance a low score on another test. Students may also retake a test if they receive a one or a two, or have not reached the eighteen points needed for graduation.
