HONORING MOTHERS
Students put their creative writing skills to the test as they drafted poems and persuasive essays honoring their mothers.  Students applied their knowledge of figurative language and well supported reasoning to convey their love for their mothers.  Others used arguments to convince others that their mother is the most supportive.  We hope all of our GRE moms enjoy a special Mother’s Day!

My Mom
By Carson

My mom is like a
Twilight sunset.

My mom is like the
Queen of a castle.

My mom is like a
Mermaid wrapped in pearls.

My mom is like a
Chef from a fancy restaurant.

My mom is like a
Singer that just came out of a dressing room.

My mom is like a
Diamond with blonde hair.

My mom is the BEST!




STUDENTS SHOW THEIR APPRECIATION
Students and families honored their teachers throughout the week.  In addition to thoughtful cards, flowers and good deeds, Student Council representatives treated teachers to a delicious breakfast.  We thank our students, families, the PTO for all of their thoughtful actions.
