Parent/Teacher Conferences

This a friendly reminder that Monday - Thursday, October 26-29 is a 1:00 pm release for all students due to Parent/Teacher Conferences. Teachers will be requesting specific conferences with parents of students who are performing below an acceptable level. They will also offer availability to others as their schedule allows. Please watch for emails from teachers for conference invites!  

Additionally, teachers are going to make time for students who need extra assistance this week so they can have a strong start to the second quarter. Stay tuned for requests from teachers to meet with students right after school to help them on a better path as we approach the end of the semester and finals week.

If you have any additional questions, please contact your child's teacher or counselor directly.

For Students
Congratulations Honor Choir!
District level Honor Choir auditions are held every year and of the hundreds of students that auditioned this year, only 17 students in each section were chosen to participate based on their audition score. Receiving a score high enough to participate in Honor Choir is a great accomplishment. Mrs. Hilliard is very proud to announce that all 6 of the following students from the Bishop Manogue Women's Choir "sang" their way into Honor Choir based on their high scores.

Jillian Beilke
Abigail Castro
Afsaneh Hormuzdi
Reagan Hukari
Helena Libang
Katie Ravazzini

These students will have the opportunity to move on to second round auditions at All-State.

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.
