Moms Join Second-Graders for Tea

Just in time for Mother’s Day, students at Deasy Elementary School recognized their gratitude and appreciation of their mothers with the annual Mother’s Day Tea. Through songs, poems and stories, the students thanked their moms and talked about why they are special, expressing their creativity through the presentations. The second-graders, who had been preparing their materials for the past week, created picture frames and books, which featured a variety of written work, for their guests. Students and parents were also able to share breakfast together in celebration of Mother’s Day.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for students to spend the week preparing songs, stories and some original work that helps them understand how much work their mothers do and how hard it is to be a mom,” said Principal Nomi Rosen. “I think it really makes them feel a special empathy and appreciation for their moms.”
