Another four-day week for students was nice yet extremely busy. New announcements, graduation preparations, the beginning of college classes, and club meetings, along with daily practices and games are only a few of the things that defined last week.
The Water Valley Main Street Association is partnering with the Student Council to host a Valentine’s Day Dance for all seventh through 10th grade students. The Student Council is excited to help decorate and volunteer at the dance to provide the younger students of Water Valley School District a night full of fun.
Seniors and juniors have the opportunity to attend prom each year, but the younger students do not have a school dance to attend. This Valentine’s dance is a dance specifically for the underclassman to enjoy and make memories. The dance will be at Fountain Square Event Plaza on February 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. Students can dance Valentine’s day away with a DJ, enjoy delicious pizza, and take fun photos with their friends at the dance.
Tickets are on sale now for $15 and can be purchased from any Student Council member or online through Cash App (@WVValDayDance). If you purchase a ticket through Cash App, please put the student’s name in the notes section of the payment.
The Main Street Association is excited to sponsor this event and provide all proceeds to the Student Council.
This week, students who play a varsity sport heard from the Balfour Representative about purchasing a Letter Jacket. Students who were interested had meetings to design and purchase their jackets. I think it is extremely fun to carry on the tradition of Letter Jackets. For me, I get to compare my Letter Jacket with my dad’s from when he was a Blue Devil. As crazy as it sounds, this one jacket connects generations of Blue Devils and that is just something I love about Water Valley.
The senior class began preparations for graduation as they started to get their pictures together for the senior slideshow. The slideshow will be displayed for their classmates and loved ones on Senior Awards Day at the end of the year. A mixture from baby photos to cap and gown portraits will be shown for students to enjoy reminiscing in before they graduate.
The Boys Powerlifting team competed on January 15 at the Oxford Invitational against South Panola, Oxford, Lafayette, Desoto Central and Wheeler.

The Powerlifting team members will continue to work hard as they prepare for their next meet.
The basketball program played at Booneville on January 20th for a district game. The boys and girls suffered a loss to the opposing Blue Devils. The program will be back in action on Friday at home against Kossuth beginning at 6 p.m. This game will also be a district game, so come out and support the Blue Devil Basketball program in their fight for a district win.
The second semester is heating up fast and sometimes just thinking about all the events going on can be overwhelming. However, as easy as it can be to get caught up in the busyness of our schedules, it is important to remember to slow down and take it all in. That’s what I’m reminding myself of this semester and encourage you to do so as well.
