Students jumped back into school last week after a nice break from Thanksgiving. The break was filled with family, friends, food, football, and more for students at Water Valley High School, but now that Thanksgiving is over, there are only a few weeks left before the semester ends.
For WVHS, that means there are only a few weeks left before exams, report cards, and a nice two weeks away from school. I love the time between Thanksgiving break and Christmas break because it is so busy and full of anticipation and fun events, excluding exams of course.
However, there is just something about walking in and being greeted by a huge Christmas tree covered in blue and white that makes school much more bearable. I love walking through the hallways and seeing what teachers gave in to the relentless begging of students to watch a Christmas movie while they do their work. I love hearing classroom’s filled with Christmas music and seeing the halls covered in tinsel. There is just nothing like Christmas at WVHS!
Last week the Student Council got everything ready for the next two busy weeks. Members decorated the hallways with lights, tinsel, and Christmas decor to get the season started off right.
Each year the Student Council hosts Christmas days for the student body to enjoy. This year’s theme is “Christmas on Film,” where each day is a different Christmas movie. December 5 was “A Christmas Story” and students wore their Christmas sweaters and socks. December 6 was “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and students decorated paper ornaments and hung them on their grade’s tree.
On December 7, students wore their santa hats to represent “The Santa Claus.”
On December 8, students can be a Grinch and wear green, or be a Who and have funky hair to show off “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
On December 9, students can visit with “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and play some reindeer games with the Student Council before school starts.
On December 12, WVHS visits “Frosty the Snowman” by wearing their winter apparel.
On December 13, the Student Council will sing a few Christmas carols for the school during break to represent “A Christmas Carol.” Then, students will be “Home Alone” on December 14 dressing in their Christmas pajamas.
On December 15, students dress with “Prancer” and wear their reindeer antlers.
Lastly, students will hop on “The Polar Express” on December 16 and grab a cup of hot chocolate from the Student Council before school.
Throughout these weeks, members of the Student Council will be selling paper Christmas trees to give to their favorite teacher. The teacher with the most trees at the end wins a prize. All the money from the sale will be donated to the Junior Auxiliary as a part of the Student Council’s yearly service project.
The club is also hosting a game of Blackout Bingo as one of their “Christmas on Film” activities. Each student can pick up a bingo card that is filled with facts about different teachers in the boxes. Students have to get one teacher to sign a square that is true about them. The game is finished once every square is filled, and the first student to complete their bingo card that day wins a prize. These next few weeks will be full of fun thanks to the Student Council!
In other news, last week also consisted of spring sports getting ready for their seasons. Baseball tryouts, track signups, and archery signups were held. Basketball and Powerlifting are also heading straight into their seasons.
The first powerlifting meet of the year will be on December 9 at WVHS beginning at 4 p.m.
There is never a slow time at Water Valley High School, especially in these next few weeks. Although, that’s what it makes so enjoyable. I plan to soak in every moment of these coming days because I just love Christmas time at school.
If I had to choose a favorite part of the school year, it would definitely be this!
