Mark Polege/Intelligencer

Mrs. Hastings fourth grade class at St. Boniface Elementary School. The students in Mrs. Hastings fourth grade class at St. Boniface wrote letters to their mothers for Mother’s Day. Dear Mom, I just want to say thank you for everything. You’re the reason I’ve come so far in sports, hobbies, and everything. You give me responsibility and your trust. You are the best. Love you always, Lucas Dear Mom, Happy Mother’s Day. I love you with all my heart! You do so much for me. Thank you for that. You are the best. Love you! Thank you. Love, Emma

Dear Mom, I know you love me but you know what too? I very much love you, too. You’re the best mom who ever lived, so thank you so much for all you did. You care for me and give me hugs, you make me feel better when I have a bug. I love you more than anyone, that’s why I call you #1. Love, Katelynne Dear Mom, I just wanted to say you are the best mom in the world. You make me feel better when I am down. You take care of me when I am sick. You are always there for me. If it wasn’t for you I don’t know what I would do. That is why you are the best mom in the world. Your daughter, Lauren Dear Mom, I love you, You love me, That is the way it should be, You’re not the best cook, But I love when you read books, I love you with all my heart, You think I am as sweet as a cherry Poptart, I love you, You love me, That is the way it should be. Happy Mother’s Day, You’re the best mother in the world. Love, Ally

Dear Mother, I need you to know you’re a gem to me. The way you smile always brings me glee. Your eyes shine like the stars of night. (You never knew how to rap.) You’re truly the best. There’s no contest. A day or two without you isn’t the best. You brighten my day. I don’t know what to say but one little thing. I love you. Love, Caley Dear Mom, You are the best mom in the world, no universe. I have a heart the size of my fist, but every little piece is filled with love for you. You do many things for me. You help me with my allergies. Help me when I’m sick. I want to thank you for all you do on cold days, warm days, good days, bad days. I will always love and thank you. Just know I will always be there for you. Your son, Daniel Dear Mom, This day is about you! Thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for loving me also. I love you just as much back! These are a few things you do for me: You take me places. You buy me clothes and other things. You also cook for me. Thank you mom. Love, Lydia Dear Mom, You’ve cared for and nurtured me for ten years. I like your bean and pasta soup. I thank you for all you do. You also gave me a great school when I transferred. From the bottom of my heart, Lino Dear Mom, Roses are red, Violets are blue, You love me and I love you too, You cook and clean and care for me, You’re the best mom for all to see. Love, Murphy

Dear Mom, This is a poem just for you! You’re my mom, and I love you too! Most fun girl ever! Only awesome mom in the world! Most entertaining mom ever! Love, Anna Dear Mom, I just want to say that you are the best mom ever. You almost always make me feel better. You do my hair (when I can’t). You pick us up from school on Mondays and Fridays. And most of all, you love Ella, Dad, Megan, and I. Thank you for being the wonderful mom you are. With love, Lily Dear Mom, You are very sweet, you are very neat. You are the best mom ever, you never could be better. You are near me when I am sad, you are near me when I am mad. You are the best mom anyone ever had, you always make me feel glad. I love you! Love, Reese Dear Mom,

Thank you so much for being the best mom. You drive me to sports, and you feed me. You always do your best on special days of mine. You cheer your loudest at my sports events. But most important of all you’re my mom. You are the best mom in the world! Love, Taylor Dear Mom, You are the best mom anyone could ever ask for. You are always there for me. When I need help with my homework, you help me. When I have bad days, you comfort me. No one could ask for a better mom. Love, Claire Dear Mother, You are the best mom on earth. You don’t make me do chores. You also don’t make me study on weekends. You are the best and don’t let some one tell you different. That is true. Your son, Tyler Dear Mom, You are the best mom because you help me when I have a problem. You’re there by my side when I am sick. You give the best hugs and kisses a mom can give, even though I get embarrassed in front of friends. You make cookies and brownies because you love me. I love you! Your daughter, Haley Dear Mom, I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you that I love you very much. You are always right along beside me where ever I go. You help me when I feel down. You always watch out for me along the way. Thank you so much for being the mom you are. I love you. Carson Dear Mom, I think you are the best mom there ever was. You make my meals, do my laundry, wash my dishes, and much more. Without you the family would be hopeless. You are the glue that holds us together. You love and care for us. We could never replace you. You are truly the best, all-around greatest mom ever. I love you! Love, Luke P.S. Happy Mothers’ Day! Dear Mom, You are the best mom ever. I love you so much. You are awesome! Happy Mothers Day!!! I am very thankful for you, mom. You Rock!!! You are the best because you are nice to me no matter what. Love, Patrick Dear Mama, You are so sweet and caring. You always give me a second chance. A mom like that should deserve something big. Something to make you feel special. Hugs and kisses! I hope you have a Happy Mother’s Day! Love,

Brandon P.S. Have a great day! Dear Mom, I need you to know that you’re the best mom. Thank you for what you do. You help me learn things. You teach me what is right and wrong. You help me with things I don’t understand. You should get a trophy for what you do too. Those are some things that make me think you’re the best mom. Love, Jack Dear Mom, Happy Mother’s Day! I love you so much! You are the best mom in the world! Why? You cook, check homework, do my hair, buy clothes for me, watch movies with me, paint my nails, and care for me. You are awesome! Thanks for being the best mom ever! Love, Emily Dear Mom, You are the best because you cook for me and clean the house. You play with me and Dad so we don’t get bored. You are the best. Love, Elijah Dear Mom, I love you. You are really nice and funny. I like to watch you take carpet-naps. You work hard and take care of me. You are the best mama ever. Love, Elizabeth Dear Mom, Thank you for what you do. It is awesome and you are, too. Your words are encouraging. Your bravery is breathtaking. You are there when I need you and sometimes when I don’t. I guess what I’m trying to say is I love you, Mom, thank you! Love, Jackson Dear Mom, If there is someone better for a mom than you, will you please tell me. I don’t believe there is because you’re the best of them all. You love me and care for me. Most of all, in your world all you need is a son like me. In my world all you need is a nice, pretty mom just like you. Love, Drew Dear Mom, I (heart) you. You’re the best mom ever. I couldn’t survive without you. I am writing this letter to tell you how thankful I am to have you as a mom. You make me feel better when I’m sick. You make me happy when I’m sad. You also buy me things when I need them. I don’t know what I’d do without you. You help me up when I fall. You cook me food when I am hungry. I just wanted to say thanks for all you do. Love, Alannah

Mother’s Day

Letters to Mom The students in Mrs. Maggie Clark's fourth grade class at Cassens Elementary School wrote letters to their mothers for Mother’s Day. Dear Mom, You are a great mom because you pay for all of my sports and you drive me to them also. You do laundry every night. You pay for all of my clothes which I am so thankful for. You always help me when I’m down. You are the best mom in the world. I would never ask for a better mom. I love you so much. You are so caring and nice. I hope you have a great mothers day. Roses are red violets are blue candy is sweet just like you. Love, Lexi Dear Mom, You are a great mom because you buy me my needs and some of my wants. You buy me clothes, food, water, and shelter. Whenever you buy me my wants they are usually for my birthday, Christmas or any other special occasion. Sometimes it is even for the heck of it! If I am hurt you will help me feel better. If I am scared you will help me overcome my fear. If someone is hurting me you will protect me. Sometimes you are over-protective but I know it is for a good cause. When you get mad at me for something and you say something that you don’t mean, I know that you regret it and you still love me. So I only have one thing to say to you. I love you mom! Love, Jessie Dear mom, You are a great mom because you’re so nice and caring and you make my brother and I our favorite food. You help us with our homework. When we’re outside you play basketball with us. You buy us the stuff we need like food, clothes, and coats when it’s cold outside. She pays money so I can do sports. She buys us books so we can read. She helps me with science projects and other projects. She’s a sweet and loving caring mom and I love you mom. Love, Chris Dear mom, You are a great mom because you wash my clothes. You provide me with food. You take me places. You buy me electronics. You take care of me when I’m sick. You help me when I am stuck. Love, Izaia Dear mom, You are a great mom because you work to get money for the things I need. You cook for me when I’m hungry. You let me do chores. You let me take a nap when I want. You give me all of your care. You never break a promise. You always know what I like. Love, Jack Dear Mom, You’re a great mom because you take care of me. You take me to fun places that I haven’t been before. You feed me every night with delicious foods. You protect me from dangerous people. You buy me fun things to play with. You respect me in every way you can. You’re great mom because you do all of this for me. Love, Jacob Dear Mom, Paul is too silly, and too small. Ask if I like Bieber, I’ll say not at all. Now I should admit this, My heart goes to you. I regret saying that, cause now you’re battlin’ with my friends and Dad. Adrienne, wasn’t karate for exercise, not combat? Mom, nice Kickboxing! Was it from boot c- Ow! I think you might win, but oh, what a sin! I’ll never say I love someone more than everyone else. I don’t want to get hurt. Love, Elise Dear mom, You are the greatest mom because...you got me a Kindle fire. And you put it on your account. And you give me enough presents for Christmas to please any child. You give me more love than one million moms could give me. You take me to places like

I hope it will stay like that. Thank you! From, Aidan Dear Mom, You are a great mom because you’ve taken care of me since I was born. Heck, you’ve even taken care of me before I was born!
