Lunch Accounts

Parents PLEASE, be sure that your child’s lunch account is up to date as we approach the end of the school year.  After April 30, students will not be issued credit for lunch or snack.  Accounts can be checked and filled on My Backpack, but keep in mind that the balance shown there may not reflect recent purchases your child has made—be sure to check the “as of” date.  Also bear in mind that seniors need to have all account balances cleared before that can get diplomas and final transcripts, so please keep an eye on things! If you have questions about your lunch account you can contact Lynn Marner at lynn.marner@bishopmanogue.org or 775-336-6098


If you are attending a sporting event on the soccer pitch or bowl, please park in the main lot. We would like to avoid vehicles passing through the gates and driving up the ramp except in cases of emergency, or when accessibility is an issue.

From Counseling

Current freshman who would like to take World History Honors next year are asked to report to room A112 at 2:45 pm on Tues., April 1 for the challenge essay.  If you are currently in English 9 Honors, you are exempt from taking this test.  All other students must take this challenge essay in order to be placed in World History Honors.  Please make arrangements with coaches, etc. to be there, as the essay is required.  Plan on 45 minutes to one hour to complete the essay. If you have any questions you can email counselors at cathy.mcclintock@bishopmanogue.org or shelly.avansino@bishopmanogue.org.

Senior Parents! Tell Us All About It

Please let us know when your child receives any scholarship offers and or acceptances to ANY college or university—not just the one they have chosen, or will choose, to attend. This information will be compiled for the Academic Awards and Graduation programs.  Please send a copy of award/acceptance letters to Dr. McBride by April 18, which will allow us to meet our printing deadlines.

ALSO, mark your calendars for our first-ever Senior Parent Dinner, May 3 at the Tamarack Junction.  This is strictly for FUN, ‘cause you deserve some, too.  Watch for more details soon.

Prom Prep

Order your flowers for prom AND support Manogue leadership.  Red Carpet events is offering online pre-order of prom corsages and boutonnieres, and will donate $5 from each order to Manogue Leadership.  Just click on this link, then on “Add to Cart” beneath Manogue High School and you’ll be brought to a page where you can choose from a number of designs.  Not what you had in mind?  You can also call and order something custom—we’ll still get the donation! Flowers will be delivered to Manogue, and available on the day of prom (April 12) at about 10 am. Brilliant!

Aly’s Prom Closet open through April 26. This program was created in memory of one of our Bishop Manogue graduates, Aly Christiansen, and helps to students with a demonstrated need get a dress/shoes/tux/etc. for Prom. If your child is interested in taking advantage of this program, they can see Miss McClintock in counseling.  And if you have gowns or jewelry you can donate, you can bring them to Mrs. Paine in the front office.

Help These Students

We are looking for a host family for one of our current international students for the remainder of the school year, and for next year.  He is from China, likes classical and pop music, singing along, watching TV, and playing games. An ideal host family for him would be an outgoing family with lots of energy, high expectations, and close supervision. If you’re interested in being an important part of a nice young man’s life email nicole.browne@bishopmanogue.org.  International student host families DO receive compensation.

We are also seeking a Host Family for a 10th-grade Foreign Exchange student. This young lady from Germany would like to become part of the Manogue family for the 2014-15 school year, but she won’t be able to have that wonderful experience if we don’t find a host family for her.   If you are interested in providing a home-away-from-home for a young person who wants to see new places, learn new things, and meet new people, please contact Nicole Browne at nicole.browne@bishopmanogue.org as soon as possible. By U.S. law, we cannot provide compensation for hosting an Exchange Student, but there is still much to be gained by sharing with and learning from these bright and adventurous kids.  Please consider it!
