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.

Academy of Finance Trip to Indy
by Shelly Popp

 

On Wednesday, March 12th, 2014, Mrs. Glaser took the students in the Academy of Finance to the University of Indianapolis University of Indianapolisto 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"
by Sam Lay

 

The Silver Creek History
Students went on a field
trip to see the recently
released "The Monuments
Men". Ms. Neal's History
AP class is reading the book.


The movie was about a World War II platoon that was tasked to rescue art masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their owners. Their main concern was over one
of Michelangelo's most
famous pieces, the Madonna and Child, which was stolen by the Germans
and eventually recovered
by the Monuments Men.
The movie is similar to
the book, but they could
not involve all of the
factual information within
the movie. Trevor Teague
said, "The movie was very
well written. The difference
between the movie and the
book was a great surprise." Trevor and EliEli Jones has not seen the
movie, but has read the
book and he said, "I thought the book has a lot of really good information and would be really good to put into a movie."


Dragon Warriors
by Olivia Pacciano

 

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 FamilyWalker 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)

Silver Creek Theatre: The Drowsy Chaperone Review
By: Ashley Neeld

 

This past weekend the latest Silver Creek Theatre show "The Drowsy Chaperone" had it's final performances. I was actively involved in the show and I must say it was one of the best if not the best show on the Silver Creek stage. Everyone worked so hard on the show and it was obvious and you could see their dedication and passion when they were on stage. I am a bit biased but I think I have a right to be proud of the cast and crew for this show.

Drowsy CastI have been involved with theatre since I was a freshman in high school and I am a Senior now. I could not be more proud of this cast and crew. Every aspect of the show including the designing aspects of the show were superb! Our set designer, Mike French, did an amazing job with the show. Theresa Bagan, our lighting designer, is fantastic. Donna Downs, who is our costume designer, did a fantastic job with the costumes for the show. This is her first show with us and I hope she continues to do costumes for all the shows we do.

You better believe I will be back next year to see every one of the shows SC Theatre puts on. I will be there at least one of the nights if not more of them depending on how much money I have at the time. It will be money well spent if you ask me!

As someone who was involved in the show, I have seen it over a hundred times probably. The late night rehearsals and the lack of sleep I endured was not all for nothing. I saw it pay off when we got a standing ovation after every show. All our hard work payed off. I was one of the stage managers for the show and I have to say that I am proud of the cast and crew for this show. The plane scene change was not easy. We have been rehearsing non-stop since the beginning of January, right after "Rumors" closed. The next show is "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". I have a feeling that show will be as good as the "The Drowsy Chaperone". While I am proud of the show, and will miss it and the people in it, I am glad to have time to catch up on school work and to have the time to finish out my last year in high school. The Silver Creek Theatre Department will always have a place in my heart and I will miss working on the shows as a stage manager.

Pon de Relay
by Olivia Pacciano

 

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,Relay for Life shirt logos 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 sneal@wclark.k12.in.us. Orders are due no later than Friday, March 21.
