It has been a soothing fall break for the Water Valley High students, teachers, and staff. This was a well-needed break for many members of the school community. Fall break allows teachers to reset their classrooms with fall decorations that are fitting for the time and gather lesson plans, and it gives students a chance to reset from testing and have a fresh start with a positive mindset this week!
The Blue Devils varsity football team gained another victory on the untraditional Thursday night against the Ms Palmer Dragons. Despite being on fall break, the football team practiced long hours during the week to ensure a win. Their dedication paid off with a final triumphing score of 32-30!
To mentally prepare the boys for game day, Head Coach Clint Faust has prioritized having a vocally positive speaker every Thursday before game day to encourage the team. With each speaker comes a new topic!

Walton’s main message he left the boys with is “Difficult but not impossible.”
