For Students
CRUCIAL Information for AP Classes!

It is imperative that AP students and parents know the information below in order to take AP exams!

Students must take two key steps needed to get ready for their digital AP Exams:

  • Step 1: Download and install the 2021 AP digital testing application and log in. Click HERE to download the app on your computer that will be used to take your digital AP exams.

  • Step 2: Practice with example questions in the app. AP Teachers have been asked to have students practice with the app. Click HERE to learn more about how to practice taking AP exams with the app.

Detailed information about these steps is available in the updated AP Digital Testing Guide (.pdf/21.5 MB). 

Please take a look at our AP testing FAQ page HERE for some important updates!
Meet Your New Student Body Leadership!
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!

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.
