Valle Catholic held their 1st Quarter V-A-L-L-E Awards ceremony on Thursday, November 16, 2017 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.
