*Fall Speech Meet

On Saturday, November 11, 2017, the Valle Catholic Speech Team participated in a Bellarmine speech meet at Our Lady of Lourdes in Washington, MO. 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.
