Clubs & Organizations

Indian Creek School believes that all students should have the opportunity to develop their existing interests and develop new ones by trying activities in a safe, comfortable environment. Clubs can develop creative and intellectual skills, coordination and physical skills, social skills for building relationships with peers and adults of diverse age, ethnic, cultural, and racial backgrounds, and personal skills that help children become emotionally healthy individuals. Each club offers a warm and supportive environment that allows for the variability in level of development of all children. The school day is structured so students can participate in multiple extracurricular activities that make them healthy and well rounded.

Lower School

Indian Creek Crownsville Lower SchoolOn Friday afternoons, all Lower School students (first through fifth grades) participate in clubs. This gives students the opportunity to explore an interest or affinity in a school setting, while introducing them to other students with a shared interest who may not be in their grade level.

There are five club sessions each year. For one of those sessions, fourth grade students will participate in swimming. Fifth Grade students have the opportunity to participate in the production of one of Shakespeare’s plays; past productions have included A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth. Additional clubs may cover a broad spectrum of topics, from arts and crafts to history to math to board games.

Middle School

Indian Creek Middle School 2013-14 Student Government AssociationMiddle School Clubs, which are sponsored by faculty advisors, primarily meet during the academic day. Students are able to use one or more of their assigned study halls each week to participate in clubs ranging from the Chess Club to the Photography Club. Additionally, five music based clubs are available, some by audition, and some by choice.

In the Middle School, the Student Government Association (SGA) plays a role in the daily operations of the Middle School. Their election in the fall (save for the President, who was elected the previous spring), helps build the structure of the Middle School community. SGA members are truly student leaders. They start the school day with announcements; select the non-uniform day once each month; and plan dances and fundraisers.

 

Upper School

National Honor SocietyStudents who show a heightened interest and skill in an academic subject may be selected to join one of the Upper School Honors Organizations. Students are nominated for, and elected into, honors organizations by members of the faculty, who also serve as the organizations’ advisors.

The Upper School’s Student Government Association (SGA) is comprised of officers in each class who have been elected by their peers. SGA members are involved in many aspects of school life, including pep rallies; food drives and other charitable fundraisers and volunteering opportunities; and planning dances and other social events.
