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.

Jaylenae Lehauli,
