For Our Parents

From the Principal

Indian Creek Middle School was established in 1997 as a part of the Newton County School System. ICMS is located in the city of Covington, Georgia, an eastern metropolitan area of Atlanta. The faculty and staff at Indian Creek Middle School dedicates itself to the success of all students. As we bridge the gap between elementary and high school, we have the important task of keeping each student academically successful. We will not forget that the school belongs to our community and its citizens. Therefore, we want all our parents and students to feel ownership. It is our pledge to you that we will emphasize academics, safety, and moral character. We need every home in the community to join with us in this endeavor!

What's Your Newton County?

Every year, the media center has a back-to-school display of what students and staff did over the summer. This year, it's "What's Your Newton?" - take pictures of your student at a favorite or special Newton location and email them to Lori McGovern. Is it a favorite restaurant, church, a park, celebrity-spotting, shopping?  All of the above? Great! Send those pictures in! We can't wait to see what makes Newton special to you!
