Valle Catholic held their 2nd Quarter V-A-L-L-E Awards ceremony on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at the Church of Ste. Genevieve. V-A-L-L-E Awards were implemented last year at Valle Catholic and are given quarterly to honor those students who consistently live virtue and exceed expectations in their character traits, work habits and academics. Students are nominated by their teachers in five areas that represent the very essence of Valle. Students are presented with a certificate from Principal Mrs. Metzger and Pastor Father Edward Nemeth assisted by Jamie Fallert.
The V in VALLE is for Virtue. Virtue not only allows a person to do good things, but to give the best of him/herself. A student at Valle lives virtue when he/she is kind, compassionate, generous, and honest and when he/she demonstrates integrity, self-control and courage. These students faithfully followed in Christ’s footsteps this second quarter:
V-Virtue: Vivien Naeger, Tye Okenfuss, Jaida Fallert, Tessa Roth, Melaina Kreitler, Kai Siebert, Landon Wodward, Cullen Huck, Dahlia Pfaff, Brody Bertrand, Evan Naeger, Elizabeth Heberlie, Nicole Gegg and Nicholas Oliver.
The A in VALLE is for Achievement. Achievement involves all content subjects at Valle Catholic. High performance reflects students exceeding our academic expectations. These students excelled in the area of academics for second quarter:
A-Achievement: Grace Wolk, Charlie Naeger, Gage Fallert, Carter Frentzel, Kale Schmelzle, Mikayla Basler, Eli Wehner, Lily Ringwald, Emma Gegg, Abree Zipprich, Cannon Wolk, Ella Wolk and Charlie Friedman.
The L in VALLE is for Loyalty. Loyalty is a strong feeling of support and continuing faithfulness to someone or something. Students who are loyal are always true to their school and those people in it. The students for second quarter who showed real loyalty to Valle and its members are:
L-Loyalty: Norah Drury, Cammden Zipprich, Gage Fallert, Maria McGuire, Paige Schwent, Hayden Vaeth, Sydney Wilkerson, Alyssa Calbreath, Colton Palmer and Chase Fallert.
The L in VALLE is for Leadership. Leadership is defined as the ability to lead other people. Students who lead at Valle do so with courage, confidence, and most importantly, kindness. They understand that being a leader is a responsibility to set a positive example for those around them. Students who have exhibited outstanding leadership qualities for second quarter are:
L-Leadership: Alyson Meyer, Teagon Peterson, Brody Wolk, Ben Oberle, Levi Chapman, Payton Naeger, Barrett Vaeth and Kristen Drury.
The E in VALLE is for Effort. Effort is the serious attempt to do something, and at Valle, to do it well. Students who show great effort constantly work hard to do their best. The task may not always be easy, but the feeling of knowing you gave it your all is worth it. Students who have demonstrated unwavering determination for second quarter are:
E-Effort: Hailey Ringwald, Lane Siebert, Leo Pfaff, Logan Wise, Grace Cox, Colton Kuehn, Trevor Roth, Kalan Fallert, Lydia Klump, Hailey Coleman, Luke Meyer and Luke McClure.
