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!

Sloane Lewis had three assists and Yoho had one. Every senior had a great game and the girls’ record is now 8-3-1.
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!

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!

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.
