Elf Makes Stop at Local Elementary School

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. No skinny man could do the job he does.

Patch will post the Letters to Santa as well as his response. Sign up for our newsletter to be sure you don't miss it!
