CCE Introduces Book Vending Machine

Cross Creek Elementary School students received a new vending machine – filled with books! To encourage reading and bolster a love for literature, students who do well in the PAX learning program will be rewarded with a trip to the book vending machine.  “Each month, every teacher will pick two students to receive a gold coin for the vending machine. The first coin will go to the student of the month (PAX Leader), and the second coin will be given to a student who is a Reader Leader. The staff and students are thrilled about this new addition and the ways in which it supports our initiatives with reading literacy and PBIS,” Alecia Cockrill, Dead of Students, noted. “We should distribute 50 books a month.” 


CCE is accepting material for grades Pre K – 6. People may also make monetary donations for the vending machine. Cockrill has shared that the books will be labeled with the contributor’s name to show students the community’s support.

March Learning Fair

Thursday, March 16 from 5:30-7:30pm

Join us at Indian Creek High School on Thursday, March 16th from 5:30 – 7:30pm for the March Learning Fair! The event plans to highlight local employment, higher education, the Armed Forces, and health and wellness services while providing attendees with a light supper and chances to win prizes. School officials will showcase Indian Creek’s growing endeavors with robotics demonstrations. ICHS has held daytime career pathway fairs for students but the Learning Fair expands its reach into the general public by adding more services. Attendants will receive punch cards which, when completed, can be entered into a drawing for prizes. The March Learning Fair will provide opportunities by the community for the community. We hope to see you there!

Curry Triplett

Teacher Spotlight at Indian Creek High School

We are proud to introduce and honor Curry Triplett, intervention specialist at Indian Creek High School! Mrs. Triplett has been with Indian Creek Local School District for a year and has already made an impact on our students. Her favorite part of her job is the kids “because they reciprocate communication with a positive attitude. They are honest about their feelings, so it makes for a more open dialogue, but most importantly, we laugh together,” she explained. She advises students not to underestimate themselves and uses real-world examples to illustrate how others overcame obstacles. 

Outside of school, Mrs. Triplett enjoys being out in nature. She loves to fish, swim, garden, and camp with her family. Her sons are a big part of her life and she loves supporting them in their activities. At the high school level, she is currently working to support students with their transition goals based on 2023 & beyond graduation requirements. With a background in career tech and intervention, she has a genuine interest to support the district, students, and staff, as well as partner with local community groups such as CCMEP, Ohio Department of Job & Family Services /Ohio Means Jobs & Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) and the State Support Team to ensure student success. 

We are so thankful to have Mrs. Curry Triplett at Indian Creek! Her dedication to her students is remarkable. Keep up the good work!

Safety Skills on Display at School Bus Safety


Our school bus drivers will show off their skills at the 2023 Ohio Eastern School Bus Drivers Safety Road-E-O! The Indian Creek Local School District is once again hosting the event, which is set for April 22 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Indian Creek Middle School in Mingo Junction. Contestants must complete a 25-question written test, perform a pre-trip inspection of their vehicle, and complete an obstacle course as part of the competition. An award ceremony will also be held with prizes being distributed and the first dozen honorees will advance to the state contest. Indian Creek first hosted the activity in 2016 while school transportation officials from around the area have served as judges and in other capacities at contests both locally and outside the area.

#CreekPrepares All Students for the Future – No matter which path they choose.

Creek’s Career Pathway Success Plan is a binder that begins for every student in 6th grade. With input from the student, parents/guardians and teacher, this organizer helps students understand their skills, aptitude and passions.

Our goal is for every student to graduate with a solid plan to enroll in college or other training, be employed in a career profession or enlist in the military.


For college bound students, Creek offers students opportunities to earn credits while still in high school in College Credit Plus. Creek also provides ACT/SAT preparation and tutoring and other college admissions support.


Creek offers career technical options that include: Information Technology, Interactive Media, Business and Administrative Services, Engineering and Science Technologies and more.


Creek educators help students at every level continually develop skills, habits and attitudes that can contribute to their success – regardless of where their life journeys take them. For many students, this aptitude is perfect for military enlistment, where they continue learning, seeing the world, and proudly serving our country.

Providing the Time and Support Students Need to be Successful.

Choose Creek for your kids.
