A tradition that began more than a decade ago continues at Kirk Elementary School, where students will receive gifts from sponsors who read their letters to Santa. When Principal Denise Romero moved from Kirk to Webster Elementary School, she introduced the tradition there. For both schools, teachers, community members, church groups, businesses and others come together to provide gifts for students, many of whom may not receive any other Christmas gifts.

“We are so grateful for the kindness and generosity from the community for the Santa Letter Writing Projects at both schools, making wishes come true and the holiday more memorable,” said Superintendent Bob Nelson.
