Camp to be held at Silver Creek High School

Mr. Emery Retiring
by Sam Lay


Silver Creek High School
has had the honor of having
one of the greatest teachers
of all time, Mr. Emery. Mr.
Emery started teaching in 1968 and has worked here since 1996 and has loved doing it. Since he's worked here he has encountered tons of new things each year. I asked him what he liked most about teaching and he said, "The students and laughing with the students. It made me think I was younger." I also asked him what he planned on doing after he left the school and he said, "Anything I want. I have trip plans, golfing plans, and family activities." He's going to be greatly missed by all of the students of Silver Creek High School. He said that of all the things he's going to miss he's especially going to miss seeing the students achieve
their goals and knowing that he had a part to do with it. If you haven't had the chance to tell him goodbye take the time. We'll miss you Mr. Emery!

After Prom
by Justin James


After students left the prom, many went home, changed out of their tuxes and beautiful dresses and headed to After Prom. This event took place inside Silver Creek High School's main gym and lasted from 11:00 P.M. to 3:00 A.M. A buffet of pizzas, White Castles, donuts, brownies, and a variety of soft drinks were set out for students. There were numerous activities set up for those who attended. These Ultimate Battleactivites consisted of several different inflatables including an obstical course, giant hamster balls, a slide that almost touched the gymnasium ceiling, a velcro wall, and a very popular combat arena.

Congratulations to individual champions: Schuyler Hosp in the discus, Tanner Coots in the 1600 meter run, Andrew Westfall, Mathew Bottorff, Morgan Davidson, and Tanner Coots in the 3200 meter relay.

2014 Europe Trip
by Eli Jones

The Europe trip took place in March. Around 80 students went on the trip. The students started the trip in Frankfurt Germany and ended the trip in Barcelona, Spain. The trip was an incredible experience for everyone who attended. The trip went through seven countries including: Germany, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Italy, France, Switzerland-Monaco, and Spain. The favorite of the group was Barcelona. The city of Munich was another favorite place for the group. Senior Logan Dehn said, “Munich was probably my favorite palce to visit. I could live there.” There is going to be another Europe trip next year. They are going to England. 

Senior Trip 2014: Washington DC
By: Ashley Neeld


On April 23-29th the Silver Creek Seniors went to Washington D.C. While the trip was quite expensive I think everyone who went had a great time. The seniors saw most of the monuments and memorials. Mr. Crabtree (the principal) was one of the tour guides and had a lot of useful information on the city of Washington. It really is a beautiful city and the trip was totally worth the money. The food was great, and more importantly the time spent with friends and classmates was what really made the trip fun! It was 6 days away from school and our families which I know everyone needs from time to time.

I can only speak for myself, but I for one had a great time on the trip. I was sad to leave even though I was a little home sick. I told the juniors and underclassmen that if they can afford to go then they totally should. I would go again if I could to be honest.

We walked a lot and saw most of the city. I did not get to see all the museums which is unfortunate. I saw the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum and the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. I really feel like our class bonded on the trip. I do feel closer to those who went. I am so fortunate that I got to go. There was not anything about the trip that I did not enjoy. We saw several plays and two musicals while on the trip.

"The Senior Trip was amazing. There were so many monuments and buildings in Washington D.C. it was almost overwhelming. We were able to see things not usually accessible to the public, which made me feel special." said Justin James.

As you can see most if not all of the seniors that went on the trip loved it. I have been told that after the trip, senior year flies by and that could not be more true. To conclude this article I will quote myself "If I could go again I would, something about being with my classmates for 6 days on a huge field trip just makes me feel good. I think my favorite part about the whole trip was the cruise on the last night, it was like a pre-prom". The bottom line, if you can afford to go then you totally should!
