Bataan Memorial students write letters to Santa

Kayden Thebeau, first grade, thinks about what to include in his letter to Santa with the help Jack Depner, fifth grade.

Students in Mrs. Nicole Heilmann’s first grade classroom wrote letters to Santa with the help of Mrs. Danielle Lajti’s fifth grade students.  The older students paired with a younger student to help carefully compose each letter.  While working on language art skills and letter writing, the lesson was also a way to give something back.  The letters were sent to Santa via Macy’s Make a Wish campaign, which donates $1 for each letter sent through the Macy’s special mailboxes.
