Students in Heather Connor's second grade class at McIntyre Elementary have been writing letters to Santa, explaining why they would make a good elf.
A few of the students kindly shared their letters with Patch.
We are featuring one student's video essay in each of the 12 days leading up to Christmas.
Editor's note: they are really cute!
You can see the rest of our pictures from our visit to McIntyre elementary on our Facebook page.
