It was a spooky week inside Water Valley High as October was winding down and Halloween celebrated! Candy, costumes, and parties were the source of school spirit! It was a frightening change of environment and, ultimately, a monstrous week at Water Valley High!
This treat-filled Tuesday was one to remember. It was different from your typical walk through the hall. With each step, you would encounter another spooky face. All of the students enjoyed the activities and were so excited they decided to kick off some of the traditions a little early. Many students, staff members, and even some teachers dressed in their spookiest and most characterized attire to show their chilling outfits and school spirit. Some classes even held festive Halloween parties.
The annual Fields of Faith was hosted by the Water Valley High School F.C.A. (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) Thursday night at the Bobby Clark football field, hence “Fields of Faith.” It was not the typical field of faith everyone was used to, considering that temperatures were freezing. The students were still warm with a heart on fire for the Lord. No matter the weather, students, teachers, and parents came out to this yearly function to share the love, faith, and positivity of Jesus Christ. A big thank you to all F.C.A. members for continuing this wonderful gathering!
The Water Valley High School student council created a Terrifying Thursday within the school. Late that night, around 7 p.m., the group hosted the annual “Trivia Night” fundraiser. This is one of the student council’s biggest fundraisers of the year!
Each student council member has a team with a total of five members. Each team member is required to pay a fee of $20, totaling towards the group’s $100 entry fee to participate. Each team then goes head to head in a fast-paced battle of trivia questions, after brain-wrecking questions, and a few snacks to keep the players up and alert. There would soon be a team that would win it all!
Everyone waited anxiously for the winning group to be announced, knowing that $250 would be gifted to the team who answered the trivia questions the most accurately, efficiently, and fastest. This trivia night was once again a success! Community, we hope to see more of you come out and participate next year!
The year I and II students enrolled in the C.T.E. (Career and Technical Development) class, Early Childhood Development, have been busy working on one of their most creative assignments of the year! These students were instructed to create a “Story Pumpkin,” where they select a children’s book, pick a fun character from the book, and make their pumpkin resemble the chosen character.
The Early Childhood class also makes regular trips down to the elementary school to visit the younger kids and show off their incredible projects, mainly to improve their skills while working with children. The class even contributed to the decorative festivities within the school. Each student in the class decorated their very own pumpkin to showcase not only in the cafeteria but also to the younger students at the elementary school.
Every pumpkin was uniquely designed, ranging from characters from classic books such as “Sesame Street,” all the way down to “Mickey Mouse” and even “Elmo.” This was not even a portion of the pumpkin that was not decorated. Still, with such a wide variety of “Story Pumpkins,” I am sure every kid at the elementary and High School enjoyed viewing their masterpieces!
The Blue Devils ended the week off on a Frightening Friday, and let me say it was a fun Halloween week inside the Blue and White! Let’s hope students return with a calm and ready-to-learn mindset and not with a sugar rush due to the concerning amounts of candy floating around the school. Either way, the students are enjoying their time at school and all of the great activities, and that’s what makes Water Valley High special!
