Juneau children write emails to Santa

Here’s what they had to say.

This year, Santa went high tech and asked for emails from Juneau children. A total of six children sent him an email, and Santa was also kind enough to share the emails with the Juneau Empire. Here they are:

Dear Santa,

I was good, I was listening to my teachers. I was sharing my toys with Jaylenae. I helped my mom clean up, And I listened to her.

I want a dragon, a dinosaur, and candy.


Josaia Lehauli,

Dear Santa,

I been good, I helped my mom. Sometimes I be good to my grandmas. And I really want presents. And I really want that flying fairy. That’s all I want.


Jaylenae Lehauli,

1. ps5

2. spider man miles morales game

Dear Santa,

I know I haven’t been very good this year, but for now on I will try to work on my behavior. If I get presents this year I want a puppy, shoes with wheels on the bottom, and a new shirt.
