Senior College Shirt Pictures Needed

Student Council will be collecting pictures of seniors wearing a shirt of the college they are planning to attend! If you do not have a shirt, you can use a sign or other creative way to showcase your college. Then we will have a weekly Instagram post (@manoguespirit) highlighting several seniors and celebrating their college plans!

You can email the picture directly to Shelly Gamble (shelly.gamble@bishopmanogue.org).

We are hoping to get pictures as soon as possible so we can start to highlight students, but this will be ongoing through the rest of the school year, so please send them in when you can!

1000 Crane Project

Our sculpture students are working on the 1000 Crane Project and have been folding for the last two weeks. Each student is folding 20 cranes for the installation, and they are each folding a separate crane that will be sent to another student somewhere in the world via the Peace Crane project! Lovely job, Miners!

The theater students are having fun delving into historical Greek performing arts by designing and creating their own masks!
A Million Dreams- Do You Play an Orchestral String Instrument?

Mrs. Hilliard is planning a unique collaborative experience with the Women's Choir, Miner Step (our newly formed men's choir), students from our partner schools, and we would like to invite all Manogue students who play a string instrument to join us on our project.

Parent Service Hours Provided for Facilities Projects

For parents that are still in need of service hours to complete the hours carried over from 19-20, Facilities Director Garth Wilson has several projects available. The hours available would consist of all outside work: parking lot and fence line clean up, pulling weeds in designated areas, and outside painting. Times available are Mon-Friday 7:00-4:00 and Saturdays 7:00-2:00.  Please contact Bonnie Hansen at 775-336-600 or email her at bonnie.hansen@bishopmanogue.org for scheduling and details.

All prior year service hours will become due and payable on May 21st. 
Remember, the Diocese of Reno has mandatory requirements for volunteering at all Diocesan schools, including Bishop Manogue, and you cannot earn service hours until those requirements have been met. Contact Bonnie Hansen at  bonnie.hansen@bishopmanogue.org  or 775-336-6000 with questions.

Parents will have to enroll in Protecting God's Children through Virtus and stay up to date on monthly bulletins for two years. After two years, you have completed all the necessary bulletins. This transfers over from any of the Diocesan schools. If you are still receiving bulletins after two complete years, contact Elda Juarez at  eldaj@catholicreno.org  to be removed from the update list.
