First graders are finishing a very important holiday task...writing their letters to Santa! First grade teacher Wes Hall explains this annual project helps students practice their friendly letter writing skills, including spelling and punctuation. Each letter is required to include something the student thinks is special about Santa, a compliment, and a question. Most students add a wish list, as well. 
This year the students typed their letters in the computer lab and they will be sent as soon as possible. 
Across the district, sophomores in Jessica Tussing's Advanced English Class are in contact with Santa Claus in the North Pole and will help him answer the letters, covering several of their own curriculum standards.  
First graders will receive those responses before leaving for Christmas break.
