SC Band Banquet
This past sunday, the Silver Creek Band celebrated it's annual Band Banquet. For the first time ever, the banquet was not just for marching band students, but rather a celebration of all branches of the band program, from pep band, to color guard, to concert band. Throughout the evening Mr. Smith handed out several awards to students of each grade level, presented letters and chevrons, and near the end even announced the Marching Band show of 2015: Catch the Sun! saying that "Last year's show didn't necessarily feel like Silver Creek. I took a guess and the band fit that mold the best they could, but this show is 100% Silver Creek." The entire evening was arranged by Tonya Shelton and took place at a Henryville Community Club Location. It was a wonderful send-off for the season and the seniors, and a look back at a still-in-progress fantastic year of new accomplishments in the Silver Creek Band program.
Turn Down for Guat
Over Spring Break, a host of Dragon students made their way to San Raymundo, Guatemala, to build houses for those with less than satisfactory shelter. The group from Northside Christian Church had partnered with Casas Por Cristo to give high school students the opportunity to show the love of God through service. As freshman James Kennedy put it, "Guatemala was a memorable experience and I am so blessed to have been a part of it. I can't think of anything better to do during my Spring Break."
The mission trip lasted all week, consisting of four work days and one day in Antigua, a city rich in culture and activities. Since there were 78 people involved with this life-changing trip, we were divide into four build teams and thus constructed four new houses. Each build team poured concrete, set up walls, put on siding, and added a roof, windows, and doors. The teams worked diligently and passionately to give this gift of a house to a family in need. Demographically, the Guatemala team was made up of almost one-third freshman girls, one might be surprised that we got done! As the youth minister in charge of the trip Kyle Wilson says, "If a bunch of freshman girls can build a house, anyone can." We had the opportunity to play with the local children, who enjoyed the fun and attention. One of said children was
Marvin , who has special needs.
The effect of this trip on the lives of those who went was momentous. It really put into prospective what people in other countries have to work with. Many live in poverty, only earning enough to feed their families. It was an honor and a blessing for us to be able to give them a shelter when we barely know them and owe them nothing. We were able to communicate not just through those who knew Spanish, but with the language that anyone can understand: the love of Christ.
Here is a list of Silver Creek students who made this leap of faith:
Seniors- Jacob Fetter, Janie Rogers, Juniors- Grace Clayton, Hailey Ramey, Nick Serpa, Tiffany Kennedy, Victoria Litzelswope, Freshmen- James Kennedy, Kailey Johnson, Lauren Hall, Lauren Mason, Nick Kistler, Nick Meriwether
Aspiring Authors at SCHS
Many writers start out small, broke, and young. There are more of them than you think. As a matter of fact, you probably know someone who isa writer, or at least someone who dabbles. There are a few of our very own SCHS students who you may see on the cover of a book in the near future.
I, myself am a writer, and spend most of my free time scribing in my book. (That is, when I'm not doing school projects or playing video games with friends.) I enjoy writing because it gives me a satisfying feeling when someone enjoys my work.
James Thomas Kennedy is
a good friend of mine and a great writer. Though, at times, school can be an overbearing task, he spends time whenever he can to add a little to his work. I asked him:
Why do you write?
Why do you write?
Could you tell me a bit about the type of writing you do?
These are only a few examples of people who enjoy writing, there are many more waiting for their chance to create something worth sharing. In my opinion, there isn't a story not worth sharing, but it's all up to them.
Lawrence Central High School Midwest Prep Track and Field Invitational
At a track meet on April 18th, 2015, Silver Creek's track and field team went to Lawrence Central to compete. The meet spanned from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the runners excelled. Achievements accomplished by the track team include: top five for Maggie Shields in the 800 meter run, a personal best for both 4x400 teams. Those teams consist of Chelsea Whalen, Katie Cooper, Maggie Shields, and Jessica Backhermes along with the guys team of Noah Jones, Andrew Westfall, Daltan Collins and Morgan Davison. Chelsea Whalen (above) ran well Saturday and has already set goals for the season, "My goal for the season is to become closer with my team and bring my 400 time down." Impressively,
Spencer Harris (right) won first in discus and was in the top five for shot put. In response to what it was like to win he explained, "It feels good. I feel like I'm getting better." Jessica Backhermes
(left) won by a land slide in the 1600 meter run with an impressive time. When asked what her favorite moment during the mile was she responded, "The last lap was probably my favorite because I was ahead of everyone and I knew I was still feeling strong, and then when I crossed the line in first and looked down at my watch to see that I ran a major personal best time."

SC Students Give the Gift of Life
The American Red Cross recently led a blood drive in the auxiliary gym. Students signed up for the blood drive beforehand and were scheduled to give blood at certain times during the day. Once the students arrived in the gym, they were given a binder filled with the terms and conditions of the blood drive and how the given blood will be used.
The students were individually taken into enclosed areas, in which they were asked many questions related to anything that affects their blood. After sufficient analysis of their blood and related activities, they were taken to a bed in another area of the gym. The nurses prepared the supplies that are required to take blood and proceed to clean the area of your arm where the needle will be placed. The students were given a foam ball to squeeze every five seconds after the needle was placed. The process took a different amount of time for each student giving blood. Once the students were finished they were given bandages for their arms. They were then allowed to have a snack and a drink and could leave the gym. Lindsay Guelda said, "Even though I had never given blood before and I was pretty scared it wasn't that bad. I'm glad I could help others by donating my blood to the American Red Cross."
Galapagos Trip 2016
As of about a week ago, the newest travel club trip has been unveiled. This time, students have a chance to travel off the coast of Ecuador. The trip will take place in spring of 2016. The trip will last nine days and will tour a large expanse of the islands. "There are 12 students signed up as of now" - said trip coordinator Ms. Neal. With the price of the trip costing just a little over $2,000, now is as good a time as any to sign up for this interesting trip. Contact Ms. Neal or Mr.Horton for more information.
