Community Service

Indian Creek students, families, and faculty members are 'helpers' by nature. While we are all separated by necessity during this time, the ICS community continues to find ways to come together to have a positive impact on the world around us. 

Creek Storytime

    • Blue’s Nighttime Nursery Rhymes, read by Jenna '22

In order to stay connected with their younger peers, (and give Creek parents an occasional break), Upper School students and faculty are creating a "Creek Storytime" video library.  Submit your video by emailing it to Dean of Student Activities Tonya Montgomery. 

Lower School CREEKcasts

    • CREEKcast May 22-29

    • CREEKcast and BREAKING NEWS May 8-15

    • CREEKcast May 1-8

    • CREEKcast April 24-30

    • CREEKcast April 17-24

    • CREEKcast April 11-16

    • CREEKcast April 6-11

Lower School students have the opportunity to help the community by presenting CREEKcast weather forecasts each week so that ICS families can plan their outdoor time during Virtual School.  Please see Mr. Sprague to volunteer.

Other Service Opportunities

    • Bandana Masks with Mr. Crossman

Be a Digital Smithsonian volunteer!
Join thousands of others to crowd source the transcription, editing, and proofreading of items from Smithsonian collections so they can be used by people around the world for research. Items are included from the areas of science, history, technology, art, and world cultures. Create and account and track the hours you spend working by noting your start and stop times so that your hours can be certified for ICS. There is a page that shows your work history that will be required to be printed as well in place of a signature. You can sign up and do your service at https://transcription.si.edu/

Hospice of the Chesapeake
Provide “Thank you for your service” cards for Hospice of the Chesapeake to use for their veterans ceremonies. Typically these cards are provided by schools, but with schools out of their buildings, they are running very low. These can be premade cards with handwritten messages or handmade cards. All are appreciated. Cards can be mailed to:
Nikki Malatesta, Hospice of the Chespeake
John and Cathy Belcher Campus
90 Richey Highway
Pasadena, MD 21122

To get service hours credit, please track dates and times spent working on the project and take a photo of the cards before sending them. A parent or guardian can then sign off on your work.
