Santa and his helper elves rolled into Lytton last Friday.

“For Christmas I would like anything I get from you.”

Santa Letters from the students of Stein Valley Nlakapamux School in Lytton.

Grade 4/5 Class

Dear Santa,

How are you Mrs and Mr Claus? Is Rudolf doing good? Are your elves working hard this year?

I’m Alanna. I am in grade five and I also grew this year. I used to be shorter last year. I like to go to school a lot because I like to be with my friends.

For Christmas I would like some roller blades. I always wanted some since I first saw McKenna’s. I’m using my brother’s right now and they are big on me. The other thing I would like for Christmas is some new skinny jeans and some DC shoes that are black. My size of shoes are six.

I hope you have fun while you deliver all the presents and stay healthy.



Dear Santa,

How are you Mr and Mrs Claus and Rudolf? Are your elves working hard for this Christmas?

I’m Montana and I’m in fifth grade now and I also grew a lot! This winter I am playing in the snow with my friends. I like to go to school because I like to hang out with my friends.

For this Christmas I would like anything I get from you! I hope I’m not on the naughty list. I haven’t been mean this year.

What would you like for this years snack I now milk for something to drink. I hope you get this letter. I also hope you have a safe trip delivering the presents!



Dear Santa,

How are you? Is there a blizzard up there? If there’s a blizzard are you cold?

Are you having good time making kids happy? I’m doing good! I’m being nice to people. When sleigh riding I make my sisters hot chocolate when they are cold and when we’re back from sledding.

There’s a book under the cookies of what I want, please, with the letter “c” around it. I want an x box 360 and two games for it please. I want loops too please. Umm… oh yah and I also want a dog toy for my dog.



Dear Santa,

How are you and the Mrs.? I am all right. If you do not know I got a new puppy, his name is Achilles. How are your reindeer, I hear that an illness is going around. Just kidding, but are they ok? Are the elves working all ready, I do not like it when you and your crew work too hard.

I might get a job in the summer because my auntie is too busy to baby sit all of my cousins. I have grown since last year: I am in grade five now. I do not like pokemon that much any more. My brother is no longer scared of dogs.

My wish list is awfully easy this year all I want is a toy helicopter. 

Sorry if you do not get the milk or cookie that you like. See you at Christmas.

Dear Santa,

How are you is the Mrs. Good?

I am fine. Please don’t put me on the naughty list I am nice.

Is Rudolf guiding the sled this year? I will be watching you on the Santa tracker. I will go to bed at 9:00pm on Christmas Eve so you can come to my house arrowed 10.00 pm. I mite leave eggnog instead of milk for a change

So guess what I want for Christmas I want an iPod touch or a phone cared for my cell. My brother Austin probably wants a doll from you. Logan wants a guitar from you. I would be so happy if I got that IPod touch.


Dear Santa,

How are you? How is your rein dear? Does Rudolph nose still glow?

I like Christmas and playing in the snow. Making big snow men is fun. After I play outside in the snow I take off all my snow gear then I have a cup of hot chocolate. Then I watch TV. When I get bored of watching TV, I go to play outside with my little sisters.

We always go to a big hill to go sledding. When it snows it goes fast when we start going down it. My mom bought us some more sleds to play on the big hill.

For Christmas I would like a Ds and some games and a case to hold it. The other stuff I would like is some more clothes, three sweaters, anda necklace with my birth stone color, a red garnet.



Dear Santa,

How are you? How’s Mrs. Clause doing? Are your elves working hard enough for Christmas? Are your reindeer ready for the flight on Christmas?

I hope Rudolph’s nose will shine brightly for you. Please don’t put me on your naughty list. This last year has been very exciting when I learned that I was moving, then challenging when I was packing and choosing a house to live in.

All I would like is a computer mouse for my computer. I would also like my mom to get better. I hope you will have a good flight.


Dear Aidan,

I’m going to have to see my electric elf about that computer mouse. He specializes in that type of stuff. It must be pretty hard without it.

I’m sorry to hear about your mom. She must not be well. I’m hoping she gets better. I’ll see will see what I can do.

Rudolph’s charging up his nose for the big trip. I tried giving my reindeer this new energy drink one of my elves gave me, it was called Gatorade, and it made them throw-up!

Mrs. Claus is doing just fine. She is now getting won over by polyester instead of cotton. Always liked cotton I have.

I’m pretty sure you’re not on the naughty list. But I will have to check. Ho ho ho!

It sounds like it must have been quite the adventure for you and your family through this last year.
