Dear Santa .....

As a kick-off to our holiday celebrations, the children at our little yellow school have been writing letters to Santa.  Our students will be visiting Santa at the mall with their families to let him know what they want for Christmas.  As Santa's time during mall visits is always so limited, the letters were an opportunity for the children to tell or ask Santa something.  Many children wanted to really get to know the man behind the red suit.  Just who is Santa and what makes him tick?

Our older students wrote their own letters while template letters were filled out with our younger students.  Here are the precious letters. (You can click on the images to make them larger.)

The Santa Letter-writing program is run by Canada Post.  Santa's volunteer elves will respond to the children with one poster letter for each class.  The letter will include each child's name.  It is such a lovely program and a very simple introduction to letter writing. 




Our letters are now on their way to the North Pole! We are looking forward to receiving a reply.
