Dear Santa: Letters from Tricia Chalfant's class

-A A +A

Locust Grove Elementary teacher Tricia Chalfant said she hopes all of her first-graders' Christmas wishes come true.

Chalfant said her favorite holiday tradition is decorating the Christmas tree and making cookies for Santa.

This year, her students have learned to help others.

"They know how to be fill someone's bucket with kindness by inviting a friend to play or helping others when they are sad," she said.

During Christmas break, Chalfant said she plans to sleep in and hopes that her own children do the same!

Dear Santa,

wanted one.  I also need a helmet to protect my face.  I have been really
good.  I help my mom clean the dishes.  I be grateful to my mom.  I will give

something nice on it for you.  You can read it while you eat your cookies.

I would like a DSIXL3DS for Christmas.  Because I always want to help my dad
wash his tractor.  Whenever I see my dad I want to help him.  And this is why
I want a DSIXL3DS for Christmas… it makes all your games turn into 3D it is
so cool, so cool!  So could I have a DSIXL3DS for Christmas.  Don’t forget
your milk and cookies.

the house.  Please get me a PSP.  And maybe some PSP games.  And if you get
me a PSP I can watch movies and if it’s a learning game you can learn and
have fun too.  The games are fun too.  I hope you eat the cookies and milk we

Dear Santa,
I have been wanting a DSIXL.  I have been a good boy.  I helped wash
Greta’s car.   I helped people win.  I made stuff for people.  I did not
tell a secret that I’m not supposed to say, listening, paying attention,
not saying they’re bad.  Enjoy the cookies and maybe a little fudge.
Sincerely Your Friend,
Ben Dunkle

Dear Santa,

I do it… like letting the dogs out and like cleaning my room for my mommy.

Dear Santa,
How are you doing?  How’s the North Pole?  Is it cold?  Santa, I really,
really want you to bring me an old Lego Batman with Scarecrow and his plane.
I have been so grateful for my family.  I always try to be good.  Could you
bring my brother, Ryan, a Lego Batman that comes with Hush?  I’ll have fun
with my Legos.  Will you please bring them for me and Ryan?  I’ll leave you
milk and cookies!  I love you, Santa!
