Austintown Intermediate School hosted the Muffins for Mom event starting on May 7.
School Principal Angel Owens said that this was the first time the school hosted the event.
“We usually hold the grandparents day and the donuts for dads event, so it was a natural step,” Owens said.
During the event, mothers brought their children to school early to enjoy breakfast together.
Assistant Principal Tim Pappagallo said that the school’s cafeteria staff worked to make breakfasts of fruit, muffins and more for the families to enjoy.
“It’s just a fun event, and a good way for moms to spend time with their kids as it gets closer to Mother’s Day,” Pappagallo said.
There was a $2 entry fee for the event, that Owens said went to the cost of the food.
Pappagallo said that more than 200 people were present for the first day of the event, which took place for three days that week.
“Our moms do an amazing job,” Owens said. “And this gives us the perfect opportunity to engage with the community.”
Owens said she expected the school to host the event annually.
