The BMCHS Ambassador program is now underway. If you love being a Miner, this program is for you. Student ambassadors are the faces of Bishop Manogue who are willing to share their Miner pride. They will attend grade and middle school visits, give campus tours, host events, and help new and transfer students adjust to life here at BMCHS. We are now accepting applications for all 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students. Please see Mrs. Huggins in B202 if you are interested. Don’t delay; the last day to apply is THIS FRIDAY, February 3rd.

“Broadway Bits”—directed by Janet Lazarus and featuring our very own super-talented BMCHS students Ashley Laughlin, James French and Charlie Manoukian—is donating half the box office of their Saturday, February 4, 7:30 pm performance to our Tuition Assistance Program.
