Kindergarten classes at Mills Pond Elementary School celebrated Mother’s Day by rolling out the red carpet for special guests on May 12.

As the mothers and invited guests walked down the kindergarten corridor, they were greeted by their special student who presented them with a handmade paper flower and accompanied them down the red carpet.

Back in their classrooms, the students shared stories on things their mothers do best and messages from each student displayed on the board as they bonded during snacktime. The kindergartners also sang songs about their moms and why they are so special.

Members of the Mills Pond Cares Club are working hard to give back to the community this holiday season.
    
On April 4, the club, along with two fifth-grade classes, created spring holiday baskets. Throughout March, the school collected donations from families and staff members to fill the baskets.

The baskets, more than 100 in total, were filled with candy, stuffed animals and handmade cards to be distributed by the River Fund of New York to children in need. The River Fund is an organization that provides food relief all year long for children, working families in need, and the homeless and low-income seniors. The baskets will be delivered prior to Easter.
