Students think outside the ‘letters to santa’ box

In Kari Greiner’s second-grade class at Paul Banks Elementary School, the boys and girls broadened their horizons when it came to the tradition of writing letters to Santa. 

They penned correspondence for the holiday, including some thought-provoking questions and a few special requests, to head-reindeer Rudolph and his teammates; Santa’s right-hand helpers, the elves; and to the big guy himself. 

The following letters are reproduced exactly as the youngsters wrote them.
