All subject areas have standards that define what a student should
know and be able to do at a specific grade level. Standards help to
shape instruction and assessments. While the school has always used
standards, the grading system has not always accurately communicated
whether or not a student mastered the standards.
My teachers are really nice
and protective of us. If there
are any problems, they always try to help.”
Nia Alexander, 5th Grade Student
The primary purpose of grading should be to inform parents
and students of how well a student is learning and progressing.
Unfortunately, the traditional grading system does not always indicate or
communicate how well a student is actually learning and what aspects a
student may be struggling with. A grade may result from a combination
of factors and does not always reflect mastery of the standards.

Our teachers teach us things we
wouldn’t learn anywhere else.
They are really unique.”
Yasmine DeLaRosa, 6th Grade Student
Standards-based grading on the other hand is a way in which to more
accurately assess and communicate student’s learning progress. When
a student, parent and teacher have a clearer understanding of what a
student is able to do, it allows for better instruction and focus on how a
student can grow and improve.
The school is confident that this change will improve learning and more
clearly communicate a student’s progress in each content area.
The faculty has been working on the transition for over a year to
prepare for a smooth transition. Our Lady of Guadalupe is committed
to providing students with the best education possible, and this change
helps to do that more effectively.
There’s a good education system here. It’s
different here because there is more work to do,
but I feel like I’m smarter because of it.”
Montrell Edwards, 7th Grade Student

Dear Friends of Our
Lady of Guadalupe
2405 Navigation Blvd.
Houston, Texas 77003
As we begin the
2014-2015 school
year, I am feeling
extremely blessed
to be a part of Our
Lady of Guadalupe
School. When I reflect
on the past few years
and on the current
state of the school,
I am encouraged to see a loving, safe, and
nurturing environment. We are a community
filled with outstanding students, committed
families, talented teachers, and wonderful
supporters. I find great comfort that many
see Our Lady of Guadalupe School as
another home.
Our Lady of Guadalupe School will be making a transition to Standardsbased grading for 1st-4th grades for the 2014-2015 school year. This is
an important change that will lead to better instruction, assessment and
communication of a student’s progress.

Tops for Education:
We encourage each
family to collect and
bring these box tops in an envelope

office or your teacher. Last year the
school raised almost $1,000 from Box
Tops alone. Keep an eye out for these
on the top of cereal boxes and other
General Mills Products.

school fund raising program designed
with busy families in mind as an
alternative to traditional fund raising.

We continue to provide an affordable, first-rate
Catholic education while providing a strong
spiritual foundation. The school continues to
be blessed with fantastic teachers who create
a culture of excellence. I realize that the quality
of the teacher in the classroom is what has
the greatest impact on the success of our
students. I am really proud of the work that we
do at Our Lady of Guadalupe School. We set
a goal to form students of academic strength,
of faith and of character. We have been largely
successful in meeting this goal because of
our teachers – the high expectations that they
set and the example that they are for their
students on a daily basis
Our Lady of Guadalupe School continues to
look for innovative ways to improve and ensure
that the quality of education is the best that
we can provide. We are excited to implement
Standards Based Grading which moves away
from traditional grading and more accurately
assesses and communicates student’s learning
progress. This will in turn guide and improve
instruction. Our Lady of Guadalupe School is
one of only two schools in the Archdiocese of
Galveston-Houston to implement this system
on a large scale and are excited and proud to
lead the way.
I am aware that without the support of our
parents and benefactors, we would not be
able to accomplish all that we do on a daily
basis. Our accomplishments have been made
possible by individuals who believe in our
mission and have supported us through their
generous donations. I continue to be humbled
by the giving that is truly a manifestation of
the love of Christ. I am grateful for this support
and ask that you keep the students, staff and
families of Our Lady of Guadalupe School in
your prayers. We will continue
to work together to educate our
students for God’s greater glory.
Our Lady of Guadalupe
is very welcoming. We’re
like a big family here at
one school. Our Lady of
Guadalupe School is like a
second home to me.”
