Help Our Montrose Team Get Ready for Serving in the Dominican Republic!

Alex Condrin '18, Contributing Writer

Over April vacation, a team of students will be traveling with Mustard Seed Communities to Cangrejo, Dominican Republic. We will work with abandoned and disabled children, the majority of whom will never have the chance to see the world beyond the gates of their orphanage, Hogar Immanuel. We want to bring the world and our faith to them, by spending time with the children and working to improve their living environment. This will be an eye-opening experience for all of us, and we cannot wait to share everything with you!   We have all worked exceedingly hard to prepare for the mission trip...

Father-Daughter Bagel Breakfast: Beloved Montrose Tradition a Great Success!

Montrose’s Father-Daughter Bagel Breakfast was a smashing success!  The breakfast took place on the morning of February 16th, and the earlier start time of 7am definitely provided more opportunity for conversation rather than just eating quickly and leaving.  Several fathers and daughters attended the breakfast and everyone seemed to have a great time.  Anna Noon ‘19 said: “It was so much fun! It was really nice to spend some time with my dad and my friends!”  Some girls attended without their dads, but they still had an enjoyable time regardless.  Sofia Conte ‘19 commented: “It di...

Feature: Mrs. Lombardo — Where Science Meets Art

Anna Sheehan '21, Staff Writer

Mrs. Holly Lombardo is known as the whip-smart science teacher who creates puns for the tops of her worksheets and pushes students to write ultra-detailed post-labs. When she’s not correcting physics tests, though, Mrs. Lombardo can be found in her home art studio, painting. Inspired by the coastlines and marshes of Maine, her place of origin, Mrs. Lombardo has now sold ten years’ worth of original acrylic landscapes. Her work is in more than ten galleries, both in and outside of New England. She is also a blogger and a one-time solo show-host this past Fall. Describing the beginning ...

Student Leadership + Montrose Generosity = Re-Run Shoe Drive Success

Sylvia Wen’18, Contributing Writer

Recently, the Montrose community donated shoes for small businesses in Africa to resell at low costs to those in need. Thanks to the leadership of Jenna McCarthy ‘19, who launched the meaningful shoe donation drive, she nearly doubled her 200 shoe goal by collecting 398 pairs. Jenna’s leadership, combined with the generosity of the community, made this event a great success. Jenna appreciated the student enthusiasm which catapulted the event’s success.
