Welcome to The Tribune-Democrat’s annual tribute to moms special section, featuring artwork and notes to moms from children who attend our local schools. The coronavirus pandemic has impacted our region in many ways, including the closing of classrooms and the shifting of lessons to digital platforms. But we remained committed to saluting area moms – and, thankfully, school leaders and pupils agreed. Before COVID-19 hit our region, we reached out to area districts, asking teachers to send us their pupils’ creations. We received many submissions from area classes – some before the virus shutdown and many afterward – some by mail but many in emails from teachers or moms and dads. We appreciate everyone’s flexibility and support. Nearly 90 of those messages appear in these pages. The rest can be viewed, by school and classroom, in galleries at www.tribdem.com/mothers_day/ Thank you to the schools, teachers, classrooms and individual pupils on their creativity. We are uplifted by the joy that comes through in these notes and drawings, and moved by the love they expressed for their moms. To all of the mothers, grandmothers, aunts, great-grandmothers, step-moms, adoptive moms, foster moms, teachers, neighbors – indeed, all ladies who care for the children of our region ... Happy Mother’s Day! – Chip Minemyer, Editor, The Tribune-Democrat
