Valle Catholic Grade School is continuing its approach to disciplining children called Virtue-Based Restorative Discipline. Restorative practices offer teachers and students a foundation with which to build, maintain and restore relationships. Through teacher guidance, students seek to understand how their behavior could have been different using the virtues as a target to strive toward. These virtues include fortitude, justice, prudence, integrity, friendship, compassion, truthfulness, generosity, unity and loyalty. Staff members continue to be on the lookout for students practicing virtues and hand out Virtue Awards. Students are recognized each month, and their name is put into an end-of-the-month drawing for doughnuts with principal Elaine Blair.
