Letters to Santa

by students at Clackamas River Elementary


EDITOR's NOTE: In case you were wondering what children in Estacada are asking for this Christmas, here's your inside look, using their words, in their own way.

Students in first- through fifth-grades at Clackamas River Elementary wrote the following letters to Santa Claus and shared them with the Estacada News. Our apologies to some students. We didn't have room to print every letter. But all of them were good.

And so this simple phrase to Estacada kids — from 1 to 92 — and though it's been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas to you.

ENJOY!

Dear Santa,

Some girls my age want makeup or lipstick, but I want a quad with an acutal shift stick. I may already have a quad and it's a dirty blue but I'll give that one to my sister and I'll have a large one too. I don't want much for Christmas I have what I need, a bed, a house, and a wonderful family. But lets not forget those who are less forutunet than me and give them a Merry Christmas and what they'll need.

So … HO, HO, HO, and have fun in the snow.

Mary Gach

Dear Santa,

All I would like for X-mas is a new Halo-4 game and a wireless mouse and mousepad and lots of sugar cookies and one wireless head set.
