​**​Valle 5th Grade tried to help folks enjoy the spirit of the season by spreading some Christmas cheer with Christmas caroling for the residents of Riverview in Ste. Genevieve. They entertained the residents with many Christmas carols. The students then shared their homemade cards with the residents.

**High School National Honor Society and Students Against Destructive Decisions presented Christmas gifts to the Public Administrator’s office.

**5th Grade students at Valle Catholic decided to ‘adopt’ a preschool class at Columbia School in North St. Louis for Christmas. The teacher of the preschool class is Ms. Julie Anne Kirchmer, daughter of Valle 5th Grade teacher, Theresa Kirchmer. Valle students, taught by Ms.​ Natalie Grass​​ and Mrs. Theresa Kirchmer, sent in wrapped gifts marked ‘boy’ or ‘girl’ for the Columbia students.
