Petal students honor mothers with bookmarks and poems

PETAL, MS (WDAM) -

Fourth grade students at Petal Elementary School held a Mother's Day Author's Tea on Thursday with their moms and grandmothers as guests.

The students created bookmarks featuring pictures of themselves to encourage their mothers to read.

Students read poems aloud in the style of the poem "Good Old Mom."

Teacher Lori Johnson said, "We're hoping today to spark that interest in reading with the moms through our children."

Local Petal cookie maker Flathau's Fine Foods donated all the food and cookies for Thursday's event.
