Capturing The Moment

Our class service project at Providence Mount Saint Vincent. OLG 8th graders provide recreational therapy to the residents of the Mount. This year, we are participating in the Silver Kite Program, where our students will conduct intergenerational interviews and compose profiles of seniors who live at the the Mount. We are looking forward to learning from the residents!

Had a visitor from Texas earlier this school year!

2017 culminated with a stunning performance of “The Lion King. Looking forward to the Class of 2018!

The Juan Diego Project 2017

Every year in 8th grade, Our Lady of Guadalupe Students complete their Juan Diego Project, a culmination of their Service-Based Education. They choose a topic based on their interests, such as poverty, environment, healthcare, education, and more. Then, they conduct intensive research on that issue, using databases such as Academic OneFile and Proquest, and deliver a 30-40 minute interactive lecture to their peers on the topic. Additionally, they perform 20 hours of service in the field to gain hands on experience. Below are their culminating videos, which they created in trios. For more information about the project and about Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Service-Based Education, contact Mr. Santos or our school’s main office at 206.935.0651.
