GET YOUR GAME ON!
The last game for the Redskins will be Thursday, October 26, 2017. They will be playing against the Edison Wildcats. The last game is always with this team; they are our “rivals.” It is important that the Redskins play very competitively; it is the game of the week! It is bound to get a lot of attention. In order to hype up the team, a pep rally will be held on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, at 6:00 P.M. Please come out and support the Redskins at both events. Scream with the cheerleaders, sing with the band, and cheer on the football team.

Senior night was on Friday, October 13. The band played their first show from our seniors’s freshman year, with songs including Pompeii, Timber, and Love Me Again. Once the game was over, the band seniors enjoyed one last walk across the football field. Senior night is a very special time for the band to come together and celebrate the seniors, and for the seniors to celebrate their time in band.
On Saturday October 7, the ICHS marching band attended the Thomas Jefferson Band Festival. They were joined by several other high school marching bands. The band performed a great show including; “That’s What I Like”, “Handclap”, “Are You Gonna Be My Girl”, and “Feel Invincible”. Band festivals are a great opportunity for the band to experience some great performances from other schools. By Linsey Flinn.
On Tuesday, October 10, students, staff, and community members volunteered to stuff mailers with ballot information. This bond issue is to renovate Hills Elementary, replace Wintersville Elementary, and replace Indian Creek High School. This will be voted on during the General Election on November 7, 2017. It is very important that the community is educated. Mine Plus Nine starts tomorrow! Please stop by Crossroads Church to make your “I will contact list” and pick up your yard sign! Please encourage your co-workers, friends, and family to do the same.

It’s the start of October, which means a lot of things. Halloween might come to mind, but more importantly, it is Breast Cancer Awareness month. The football game this week is against Martins Ferry. The theme is “pink out” in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. So, be sure to come out and support our Redskins and tackle breast cancer!

The band was excited to support the two members who were on court, Carly Jo Laughery and Alexis Pethtel. The band prepared and played a special homecoming song at halftime while the queen, Alexis, was crowned. For most band members, Homecoming is the best time of the marching season because they all come together to support the “band queens” by wearing shirts and cheering them on at halftime!
