Dear Santa: Letters from Kasey Anderson's class

-A A +A

Harmony Elementary teacher Kasey Anderson said her wish for her first-graders is simple.

"Today and everyday, I wish my students happiness.  I wish them health," she said. " And I wish that all their dreams come true!"

Anderson said her favorite holiday tradition is going to her grandfather's house on Christmas Eve to celebrate with family.

This year, Anderson is expecting a special Christmas gift.

"If things go as planned, I hope my baby girl will be born over winter break," she said. "That would be the best present ever!"

Dear Santa,
I riley like Christmas and I like to see the Christmas dekraashins.  And I
cant waat.  And I like to hang the stockings and hare the beels reeg and
decraat the Christmas treey.  Do you decraat your heos?
I have been good at home and at school.  I do chores like taking out the
garbage and I do the dishes.  I have been good in the car.  I sit nicely.  My
brother and sister fight but I sit quietly.
Santa I have been good and I want to have a trumpet under the tree and play
it.  I would like a saxophone too.  I really like horns.
I hope you have a safe trip and what are all of your reindeer names?  I
