This year, our 8th grade class has paired with 3rd grade and Kindergarten as educational guides, helping third graders develop writing skills and giving kindergarteners structure in PE. This opportunity helps develop school community, as well as utilizes 8th grader expertise to give back to their school community.

To celebrate Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Feast Day, our student council performed the story of Our Lady and Juan Diego.

Our class service project at Providence Mount Saint Vincent. OLG 8th graders provide recreational therapy to the residents of the Mount.

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.
