Student Council Rolls Out the Red Carpet for Father Daughter

November 5, 2018

This year’s annual Father Daughter dance was held on Friday, October 26. Early on in the school year, AHN’s Student Council decides on a theme for the event. For this year’s Hollywood theme, students from all grade levels came decked out in iconic costumes inspired the “silver screen.”

Junior Caroline Lamoureux said, “This is my dad’s favorite night of the year. We look forward to this event so much. This year’s theme was awesome because it allowed everyone to do their own thing but still be part of the group. This year was the best one yet.”

Prior to the dance, students followed the tradition of voting on “Foxy Father”. This year three Seniors’ fathers contributed to the contest, with a photo of them in their high school years.

This year’s Foxy Father contestants were #1) Isabella Bahr’s (’18) dad, #2) Olivia Fernandez’s (’18) dad, and #3) Audrey Gabbard’s (’19) dad.

Senior Isabella Bahr said, “It was very cute to see how excited my dad was to win Foxy Father, because he had already won when my sister was a Senior. I also didn’t tell him so he was kind of confused.”

As dinner finished up, time rolled around for the costume contest. The fathers and daughters who felt they had a unique costume were asked to come to the front of the dance floor. The winner was decided based on the amount of applause their costume received.

    Hi! I was curious if you’ve considered moving the high school father-daughter event to an evening when it doesn’t coincide with the Jesuit football games. It is my understanding that this evening took place the same night as the homecoming game so with my daughter being a cheerleader, she could not attend and neither could many other girls that were cheerleaders or if their dad’s went to Jesuit, they probably waned to be at the game. I know my daughter would love to take her daddy to a dance so I would love if you might consider checking conflicts the next time we choose a date! Thank you! Cindy Beil

    Hi there! Unfortunately the date for this year’s Father Daughter was selected prior to when we began planning the event. I worked with both my committee and members of the AHN Administration to try to move the event to another date that didn’t interfere with any other Academy or Jesuit event, but, there was no other date the week before or after the already scheduled date that worked out sadly. I am sorry that your daughter was unable attend the dance this year. We plan to better communicate with Jesuit next year in order to guarantee that there are no conflicts that will hold students back from being able attending the dance.
