On Saturday, March 28, 2015, the Valle Catholic Speech Team participated in a Bellarmine speech meet at St. Ambrose Catholic Grade School in St. Louis. In speech meets, students in grades 5-8 develop and improve their public speaking skills by memorizing and performing material in Humorous, Serious, and Duet categories. Ribbons are awarded to participants based upon the total score received from two judges.
Serious solo team members were:
Cora Friedman (6th grade): red ribbon for “Information Please” by Paul Villard
Mary Roth (6th grade): blue ribbon for “A Kitten Goes Adopting” by Leota Hulsa Black
Duet team members were:
Ericka Loida (8th grade) and Daniel Kuenzel (8th grade): blue ribbon for “Anybody Want My Sister?” by Ken Bradbury
Kyle Steiger, (6th grade) and Claire Parmer (6th grade): blue ribbon for “On the Air” by Ken Bradbury.
The speech team is coached by Sheila Roth. Congratulations to all of the students!
