Community Partnership

Student Experiences

Clear Creek’s unique school communities program develops stronger school community by helping students build relationships across the school. All Clear Creek students are members of one of six school communities, comprised of students and staff from every grade level. During our monthly community meeting, students work to develop leadership skills using the Core Essential Values curriculum. To better the world, our students take action through service learning projects, like Pennies for Patients, Buddy Benches, and World Vision. Students take on leadership throughout the school, like recess equipment manager, bus captain, student council member, or Comet, the school mascot. Clear Creek offers after school club opportunities, like Garden Club, Bridges Language Program, Girls on the Run, Robotics, Drama, Recycling, and Girl Scouts.

Several organizations assist Clear Creek with the development and implementation of our Global Curriculum. • Indiana University Center for Global Change • Russian and East European Institute • African Studies Program at Indiana University • Center for the Study of the Middle East at Indiana University • Institute of European Studies at Indiana University • Inner Asian and Uralic National Research Center • Center for Latin America and Caribbean Studies • Indiana University School of Spanish & Portuguese • Indiana University P-16 Institute YMCA Energize implements healthy lifestyle and fitness programming with our 4th grade students. Indiana University’s Biology Outreach program conducts science activities with our 3rd grade students. Clear Creek partners with Indiana University School of Education as a practicum site for students majoring in elementary education. Graduate students from the Institute for Child Study support students with academic and behavioral support.

Clear Creek is special to me because the teachers and staff keep us safe and help us learn. "
