Service Opportunities

Speech and Debate needs volunteers for a virtual tournament the week of 1/25-1/30. All judging is done online (so you can be in the comfort of your own home!). There are options to judge on your own terms by watching videos that have been uploaded, or you can judge live events on Friday and Saturday.

Donate or Volunteer to Refurbish Devices for Distanced Learning

Eagle Scout Owen D. is currently seeking used devices such as phones, tablets, laptops, and iPods for his Eagle Scout project. The devices will be refurbished and cleaned so that they may be donated to underprivileged students who don't have a device for Distanced Learning.

Up to four service hours can be given to students willing to volunteer to help clean and refurbish the used devices.

Contact him at owendavis04@hotmail.com.
Parent Volunteers Needed for Lunch Duty

Greg in the cafeteria is in desperate need of coverage for breaks Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (9:20 - 9:40 a.m.) and lunches Monday and Wednesday (11:00 - 12:53)
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 the 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.
