Teutopolis, Fourth grade, Mrs. Mette



Collin Magee

Lori Niemerg should be Mother of the Year. She is sweet as a lady bug and kind like a butterfly. Also, she is perfect, so you should vote for her.

Mom supports me when I play soccer games. She is the loudest the crowd. She also always hugs me when I finish. What really supports me is when she tells me, “Play hard and have fun”. So, I’d say she likes it when I play. It makes her happy and she loves sports. I hope the next game I play I see her smiling face as Mother of the Year.

Another reason is Mom tries to help the family. Because we live in a house of eight, it’s hard. Mom is always trying to help the family. Dad has a job too, but Mom has a big job. She has to work at ?ve places and she usually isn’t home so that bums me out. My mom will help anyone she can.

My mom is cheerful and helpful. She can be more responsible than any other mom in the whole world. Vote her as the new Mother of the Year.

Leo Niemerg

My mother, Chris Probst , is a wonderful mom. She deserves to be the Mother of the Year. If you know her, you would pick her too.

The first reason she should be Mother of the Year is because she is cheerful. She always has surprises, and she can always get a laugh out of you. She also doesn’t let me get bored at all. Finally, she cheers for me at games and cheers for her friends too.

My mother is a caring person too. She helps me get good grades and helps me with homework. She is friendly to others. She also helps me get stuff down, and doesn’t get mad. She is a forgiving mom.

Make my mom Mother of the Year. She is friendly to everyone.
