Teutopolis, Fourth grade, Mrs. Mette

You must make my mom, Jennifer Deters, Mother of the Year. She is as funny as a seal. You’ll never see a mom like this.

The best reason she deserves the award is because my mom is so athletic and talented. She loves to be outside with her kids. She also loves running, playing, and loves bike rides. The funny thing is that she can still do a flip at 33 on the trampoline. My mom is the best!

Another reason is my mom is awesome. She never says no and never lets you down. She likes to smile all the time. I think that she is very successful because she has me for a daughter, I am so lucky that I have a mom like this.

My mom is so awesome I don’t know what I would do without her. Making my mom Mother of the Year would be a great decision.

My mom, Karla Dixon, should be Mother of the Year. I’d like to see you go up against my mom.

The first reason my mom should be Mother of the Year is because she is a good cook. Three of my mom’s most awesome foods are pumpkin pie cheesecake, egg sandwiches. Some more are hamburger, green bean casserole, and ham. These are some of my mom best foods.

Another reason why my mom should be Mother of the Year is because she is helpful. She helps at the hospital and also volunteers. She helps with my homework and cooks dinner for me. My mom is the most helpful person I now.

You should choose my mom for Mother of the Year. These are my mom’s best qualities.

Jeremia Dixon

Has your mother ever been mother of the year? Well, my mom is going to be this year. My mom’s name is Ashley Hutcheson. You should really meet her.

My mom is the most caring person I have ever met! She has always cared about my little siblings. She also cares that I have a good education. My mom also cares about my neatness. My mom has always cared about all of the people on Earth and what they do. My mom is so loving to me and others.

Secondly, my mom is very supportive of me. My mom has always supported me of all kinds of things. She always wants me to do well on tests. Sometimes when I think hard enough it is like, she is right next to me for support. Over the weekends when I see her and I have homework she helps me. My mom is supportive I will always support her too.

Would you choose my mom for Mother of the Year? You have to vote for my mom to be Mother of the Year!
