Smiles from ear to ear could be found on the faces of prekindergarten students at Northeast Elementary School in the Amityville Union Free School District and their mothers who came together on May 12.

The school hosted its annual Mother’s Day Tea, which began with the students performing songs for their special guests including “Mommy, Mommy, I Love You Mommy,” “You’re My Mom,” “If I Had a Little Red Box,” “L.O.V.E.” and “Skidamarink.” Children and their mothers then shared iced tea, juice and cookies at tables draped in colorful clothes.

The students dressed up for the occasion with the boys in shirts and ties and girls in dresses. They presented handmade gifts to their mothers such as drawings, picture frames, flower crafts, cards and necklaces.  

Said teacher Barbara Perez, “It was a beautiful day for mothers and children to come together, and for us to show appreciation to the mothers.”
