The Father-Daughter Bagel Breakfast is a Montrose tradition for Montrose girls and their dads to bond with each other as well as others. This event acts a destresser for students and even their fathers. With hectic schedules and timely commitments, it can be difficult to find time to spend with family. Between work, school, and whatever else may come in the way, hanging out with our parents can seem impossible. The dads and daughters who attended the breakfast on Wednesday, November 9 agreed.

Mr. Lewis, the father of Julia Lewis ‘18, enthusiastically said, “This is one of my most anticipated days of the year to spend time with my daughter and her friends.” Mr. Dyke, the father of Anna ‘23, Mary ‘20, and Francesca Dyke ‘18, said, “It’s nice not to rush so much and to enjoy time together.” In addition to family bonding, these 40 minutes allow fathers to chat with each other. He added, “It’s also good to see the guys and connect with people.”

Another father added, “It’s nice to get together as a community.” This event is a reminder that the Montrose community extends well past the students and faculty. It includes the families who make our education and accomplishments possible.

The bagel breakfast is ultimately a treat for those who make Montrose what it is. It is a way to show our appreciation for Montrose fathers who can never be thanked enough.
