It is finally spring break which means there is only nine weeks left until the end of the school year. I just know that these final weeks will go by extremely fast once we return to class. It will not be long before it’s summer, but until then Water Valley High School students will continue to fill their schedules with spring events!
The Interact Rotary Club is hosting their spring service project on March 18. Members of the club decided to host a “Library Day for Littles” as this semester’s project. The Library Day will take place on March 18 at Blackmur Memorial Library from 10 to 11 a.m. for all preschool and elementary age kids. The event will be full of reading, music, and crafts. The Interact Club hopes to see you there for a free morning of fun!
On March 10, members of the senior class led groups of junior high students through different rooms to hear about all sorts of career paths from professionals in multiple fields. Students got to hear from individuals in cosmetology, law enforcement, sports broadcasting, accounting, engineering and more. High school counselor Jonathan Barnes organizes career day each year for the junior high students. This event is a great way to allow students to view a wide range of career paths and see if any spark their interest. It also allows them to speak with individuals in the field and ask any questions about their professions.
