Brightly colored tablecloths and floral centerpieces helped transform the cafeteria into a café at Northeast Elementary School on May 10. Pre-K students welcomed mothers, grandmothers, aunts, siblings and even a few fathers for the annual Mother’s Day.

Teacher Yvette Carman said that the tea is a long-standing tradition at the school as a way to show appreciation for the parents who do so much to support their children’s educations.

During the morning and afternoon programs, each of the four classes sang a special song for their mothers before a group performance of “Skidamarink.” Children then joined their special guests at the tables for snacks, iced tea and juice. They made gifts including cards, picture frames and artwork.
