Mrs. Jessen's Fantastic 5th Graders hosted a Mother's Day/Grandmother's Day Tea. The event was held on the Friday before Mother's Day as a way to celebrate all of their mothers and grandmothers. Unfortunately, I could not attend because it was also Preschool Graduation for my class at the same time. But, Cara did have both of her grandmothers in attendance. The class served strawberry shortcake and tea for refreshments (I baked all of the angel food cakes for the class). Each student introduced his/her guests and then the class presented a short program for the group. Then class did a candle ceremony and then sang a class song of "One Candle". Mrs. Jessen gave out prizes to many mothers and grandmothers. The prizes were her famous loaf of cinnamon bread. The prizes were given for: who traveled the farthest, who was the oldest, who had the most family members attending Sacred Heart School, etc. Each person in attendance was also given a booklet made by his/her 5th grader.
I was so disappointed that I could not attend and Cara was also disappointed. But, both of her grandmothers made it up to her.
