Happy Mother's Day
Mother's Day Song
You're so kind, Mom.
You give me food.
Provide my clothes and tuck me in.
You take me swimming and to the park.
Help with my homework after dark.
The students also made some gifts for their mothers. Make sure to check you child's folder in case they forget to give them to you!
