As Yeshiva of Central Queens students eagerly await the warm weather, all of the elementary school children worked diligently on projects for their mothers to show hakaras ha’tov for everything they do for them. In Mrs. Guise’s class, the second graders created unique magnets using photos of themselves. Using the letters from alphabet soup, they labeled their magnets. The special poems written for this occasion will be hung with their magnets, making a lasting memory.
The fourth graders in Mrs. Criss’ class learned about how each student is an individual and special in his or her own way. They wrote messages to let their mothers know how important they are. In addition, they made key chains with their fingerprints to match a poem they gave to her. Some of the first grade classes made their moms vanilla body scrub and are giving them a coupon for “One Day of No Complaining.” All of the students were excited to give their moms their gifts and show them how much they love them.
To celebrate spring, the YCQ Band and Orchestra performed their annual concert for their families and friends. The sounds of Hatikvah and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star reverberated through the halls. After a year of practice and hard work, the students played with pride.
