Santa Claus

Christmas is a time for sharing and upholding traditions. It is a Valdez tradition to publish letters shared by second-grade teachers from the students of Hermon Hutchens Elementary School before Christmas - as always, you will laugh, maybe tear up a bit, but even our favorite humbuggers - think the Grinch and Ebenezer Scrooge - will get that warm holiday feeling reading the wishes of these kids.

From Mrs. Keller's class:

This year I have been nice. I helped my mom and dad do errands, I helped decorate the tree, and I am helpful with groceries. I do all my homework without a fuss. For Christmas I would like a Drone 3 and a helicopter with a spy camera. I will leave carrots for your reindeer.
