Students had another eventful week at Water Valley High School starting out with a fan favorite holiday. Halloween on a Monday seems like one of those things that goes against nature. Students are not meant to spend their Halloween in a classroom writing down what assignments they have due for the week. However, Water Valley High School did its best to make Halloween fun for each student this year.
The Student Council hosted a morning trick-or-treat on Monday. Members welcomed each student into the school with smiling faces and a “Happy Halloween” along with a handful of candy! Students were also allowed to dress out in their costumes in order to bring the Halloween spirit into the halls.
Although Halloween excitement passed for most of the student body after Monday, seniors held on to that excitement throughout the week as they grew closer to graduation. Seniors officially recorded their measurements and paid for their cap and gowns bright and early on November 3, becoming one step closer to being WVHS alumni. Seniors also heard from a representative from Mississippi State University this week, allowing the future graduates to understand university life and ask questions concerning the campus.
The Interact Club met on November 3 to discuss their upcoming service project. The students are hosting their first ever “CansGiving.” This will be a canned food drive in honor of Thanksgiving hosted by the club. All donations will be going towards Compassion Ministries and the last day to donate is November 18. Boxes for donations will be set up around various locations on Main Street and in the office of the High School. Drop-off locations include Turnages, Larson’s Cashsaver, Mechanics Bank, Dollar General/Family Dollar, Renasant Bank, Hometown Pizza and BTC.
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes Club hosted their annual Fields of Faith event on November 2 at Bobby Clark Field. That morning members passed out flyers for the event to each student as they entered the hallways.
Then later that night, students gathered together at the 50 yard-line to worship and dive into the Word. This year’s Fields of Faith theme was to “Stop Spectating and Start Stepping.” This theme encouraged students to begin taking action in their faith instead of sitting around and growing comfortable.
Cooper Clement spoke to students about what it looks like to step out for Christ. Students then broke into small groups that were led by the FCA officers and came back together at the end to praise the Father through worship.
The Blue Devil football team hosted the first round of playoffs at Bobby Clark Field on November 4 as they hosted Rosa Fort. The Devils won with a final score of 48 to 38 ,securing a spot in the second round of playoffs on November 11 at Winona. Be sure to come and support your Football team in their fight to the state.
Another month down at Water Valley High School and this year just seems to go by faster and faster. November snuck up on students pretty quick. However, there aren’t too many complaints about that in the hallways because students know that with November comes Thanksgiving break, and that makes all the busyness worth it!
