Torrey Hills School hosted a Mothers and Others Picnic last Friday afternoon when moms, grandmothers and special friends came to share lunch with students on blankets and under umbrellas on the sun-soaked play field.
First grade mothers and others were invited to come early to read with their children. The first graders made construction paper likenesses of their moms - their hair made out of yarn and buttons and ribbons on their dresses. They wrote special essays about what they loved about Mom.
