Questions from Port Washington and Saukville students in letters to Santa are answered by the jolly old man himself.
A group of Lincoln Elementary School students recently took the time to write letters to Santa. Beyond letting him know what they want for Christmas, and offering advice for Santa while he's on the road for Christmas — the students had all sorts of questions about Santa's operation in the North Pole. Elf Lyssa visited the school to collect the letters, and they were safely delivered to the North Pole. Santa has finally had the time to read them, and this is what he had to say in response: Dear children of Port Washington and Saukville (and a special hello to the students at Lincoln Elementary School), I am so glad to hear from you during this wonderful holiday season, ho ho ho! It's the best time of year, you'd ought to know that by now. …

First-graders at Lincoln Elementary School met with the elf who journeyed from the North Pole just to bring their letters to Santa.
Do all elves have pointy ears? Well, no — not if they don't eat enough vegetables. That's what some first-graders at Lincoln Elementary School learned first hand after a visit from Elf Lyssa during class on Wednesday. The elf stopped by to collect their letters to Santa, and make sure the jolly old man would get them in time for the holiday. Some students thought they may have seen the sleigh the elf rode all the way from the North Pole — and while Rudolph did lead that journey, the elf was reluctant to tell students where the sleigh was hiding. Students also learned that elves wear both red and green apparel, depending on the day, and that elves spend a lot of time making and wrapping toys. Oh, and just so we're clear: Santa is a big guy…
