Eastside students in Mrs. Cotton’s sixth-period Social Studies class created wonderful Mother’s Day cards as a part of learning why various holidays were established and what they celebrate.
The students had to research the reason Mother’s Day was chosen as a federal observance. They also learned about the president who was responsible for it becoming law and why Ann Jarvis ( the creator of the observance) tried to end Mother’s Day.
The students wrote personal messages and poems for their Mom.
