Spring Break Trip to Europe
On Friday, March 21st, the students going on the Europe trip will depart from the Louisville airport. At 12:15 pm, around 100 people on three different flights will be heading to Frankfurt, Germany. On the first day of touring, students will be looking around the beautiful city of Heidelberg. Over the 12 day trip, they will see many sights, including the Nuremburg Documentation Center, Munich, Nymphenburg Palace, Dachau, Neuschwanstein Castle, Lucerne Region, Milan, Nice, Monaco, and more. When the group flies back to the United States, they will have visited several countries. “I’m ecstatic to be traveling to Europe for the first time,” said Mackenzie Crouch, a junior going on the trip. The students are supposed to get back in the evening on April 1st.
Academy of Finance Trip to Indy
On Wednesday, March 12th, 2014, Mrs. Glaser took the students in the Academy of Finance to the University of Indianapolis to network and compete with other Academy students throughout the state. Silver Creek was the only school to attend not from the Indianapolis area, and we also brought the fewest students. Juniors played a few rounds of Pit, a card game that teaches commodity trading, while Seniors competed in the Brain Game, a Jeopardy-style game consisting of finance and economic questions. The competitive Brain Game was bracket-based, and Silver Creek made it to Round 2. “The students enjoyed networking and participating in the financial activities” Mrs. Glaser said regarding the overall trip.
History Classes Review "The Monuments' Men"
The Silver Creek History
The Clark County Relay for Life is a wonderful opportunity for residents of Southern Indiana to Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back alongside the American Cancer Society. However, this year, the event will mean something different to Sellersburg residents as well as the Relay for Life team of Silver Creek High School.
On September 1, 2013, Walker Brooks, age three months, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. By definition, neuroblastoma is essentially a cancerous tumor, composed within a body's neuro system. Although he was facing a dangerous form of childhood cancer, young Walker has shown America exactly what fighting back means, accompanied by parents Zac and Kelly, big brother Braxden, a loving extended family, and prayer warriors across the nation.
Over the course of six months, young Walker endured six rounds of chemotherapy treatments and five surgeries. The first of these surgeries was biopsy/bone marrow surgery that took four hours. Walker then went through three separate surgeries to replace his Broviac line. Finally, on February 14, 2014, Walker had an eight-hour surgery to remove what remained of the tumor after six rounds of chemotherapy. On March 4, 2014, the Brooks family finally received the long-awaited phone call: Walker now has no evidence of disease (NED).
"While the doctors and medicine played a part in Walker's healing, I truly believe that God laid his hands upon Walker and heard the prayers of the thousands of people who care for Walker across the U.S.," says Kelly, Walker's mother. "I found comfort in the verse Joshua 1:9, and always remembered that God gives his toughest battles to his strongest warriors, hence the nickname, Walker the Warrior."
This year, the Silver Creek Relay for Life team shirt features a shield. Many of the team's posters throughout the 2013-14 school year have featured the phrase "Cancer doesn't know who it's dealing with," which Walker Brooks has proven. Coincidence? Perhaps.
But the Silver Creek Relay for Life team isn't letting that turn of events remain a coincidence.
In honor of Walker's heroic and triumphant battle, the Silver Creek team is dedicating their 2014 Relay for Life participation to Walker and his family's journey. Join the Silver Creek Dragons and Walker's Warriors on Friday, May 16 at Charlestown High School at 7:00 PM for the annual event and help the SC team celebrate the spirit of a young boy's resilience when fighting back.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)

Christian Prather, co-coordinator says about the fundraiser "it feels awesome to be a part of such a great cause."
Pon de Relay
It's that time of year again - time to buckle down for the fundraising efforts for the Clark County Relay for Life!
Each year, hundreds of people gather together at the Clark County Relay for Life, to celebrate a year of hard work to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Attendees also remember those who have lost their battles with cancer as well as to vow to fight back for future patients of various forms of cancer.
Silver Creek High School students have sold shirts in the past as well as held Common Chord, which is a musical event to raise money for their Relay for Life team. However, this year, the SCHS Relay for Life team will be selling T-shirts, sweatshirts, and stadium fleece blankets in addition to the Common Chord fundraiser. The Relay for Life team will be selling t-shirts for $10, sweatshirts for $15, and blankets for $25 each. There will be an additional $2 fee for XL sizes in shirts and sweatshirts.
"I think sellings the blankets would be a really great idea," said Mynda Graham, SCHS senior. "It's something different."
The crest logo was designed by Silver Creek sophomore Logan Wells.
Order forms will be available in all Silver Creek schools. For more information, please contact Ms. Neal, SCHS Relay for Life sponsor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Orders are due no later than Friday, March 21.
