Bishop Manogue is seeking host families for several incoming Foreign Exchange students.  Foreign Exchange students come to study in the U.S. for one semester or one school year only.  Hosting an Exchange student is voluntary and there is no financial compensation (by federal law), but hosting an Exchange student can be a valuable cultural experience for your family.  Our Exchange students typically come from Europe (Germany) and are usually very proficient in English. They are carefully selected by our contracted agency and are eligible for the full high school experience including participating in sports.  If interested please contact our Dean of Students Patrick Bell at patrick.bell@bishopmanogue.org or 775-336-6021


Dennis uniform is offering 10 percent off online or in-store ordering through July 10.


Summer reading lists for students have been posted, and hopefully your children are enjoying their literary adventures.  Please remember that summer reading is MANDATORY for all students, and encourage them to pick up their books regularly throughout the summer.  Staying on top of their summer reading can really help them start the new year off right!


Parents’ Club is looking for senior students to design and submit artwork for the Senior t-shirt and sweatshirt! Please submit artwork to the school office by Thursday, July 12, 2012 at 2pm.  Identify your work clearly on the back, including student name and contact information, and address all submissions to Vicki McGowen so that they reach the right person.  You can also submit designs electronically to vickimcgowen@charter.net.  The design should be planned for the back of the t-shirt or sweatshirt, can up to four colors, and can be done in any medium.  The names of all the seniors in the class can be incorporated into the design if desired. (We will supply the names later, but plan on about 140 students.) Feel free to call with any questions:  Vicki McGowen, 775-722-2811
