Dear Parents,

On Saturday, March 3, we will host the Valley Catholic Middle School Speech Tournament. The tournament was founded in 1967 by Sister Rose Dolores Costello and Sister Mary Fidelis Kreutzer of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon.

For the past 51 years, we have carried on the traditions established by Sister Rose Dolores and Sister Mary Fidelis, using the same format they established so many years ago.

This is the largest middle school event of the year, as we will host nearly 1,000 students, coaches, and families at the tournament. Over 120 volunteers will help with everything from judging to serving lunches. We truly could not organize such a successful tournament without the help of all of our volunteers.

Each year, I look forward to sharing this event with all of the students and their families. I am confident it will prove to be a very special and memorable day for everyone involved.
