Hilltop Elementary School kindergarten students had some special visitors as they celebrated Muffins With Mom on April 20. The students treated their mothers to a musical performance, with muffins for everyone afterwards in the cafeteria.
Under the direction of Stephanie Summers, Hilltop music teacher, the kindergartners started their program with the “Hilltop Elementary Song,” followed by “The Muffin Man.” They continued their program with “Skinnamarinky Dinky Dink,” “Down By The Bay” and “A-Ram-Sam-Sam.”
In between songs, the mothers were shown videos of the students, by class, answering the question “I love my mom because…” The kindergartners gave such answers as she takes care of me, she hugs me, she gives me toys, she makes me ravioli, she lets me eat cookies, she cleans up my messes, she reads me bedtime stories, she keeps me safe and she does everything for me.
Before wrapping up the performance, Summers thanked the moms for coming.
“Before we sing our last song, I would like to thank you for coming today. We hope you enjoyed our show,” Summers said.
To end their performance, the students sang “Bumping Up and Down.”
“That was awesome. Weren’t they awesome? I hope you enjoyed their presentation. You can now move to the cafeteria, and please note your children’s artwork of you in the hallway which they created in art class with Mrs. Leonard,” said Hilltop Elementary School Principal Joe Maroni.
After the performance, the moms met their children in the cafeteria for muffins and were able to enjoy some time with their kindergartners. They could also have their picture taken in photo booth provided by the school’s PTO to commemorate their special day.
