Valle kindergartner honored for care, compassion shown to injured teacher

Valle Catholic School kindergartner Colton Joseph Lipp was honored with a “Do the Right Thing” for staying with with teacher Donna Herzog when she was slightly injured from a fall in January.

On what she described as "a beautiful, sunny January day," first-grade teacher Donna Herzog headed out to the playground at Valle Catholic Grade School for a routine assignment — to monitor recess.

No biggie, normal stuff ... until she failed to navigate concrete steps from the school to the playground. Looking aside to chat up the students, she missed the last step, twisting her ankle and tumbling to the asphalt.


The kindergarten youngsters quickly gathered around and asked whether she was OK, but ran off to play once she answered in the affirmative.
