Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.

Dear Santa,

My name is Erika Hale. I am 6 years old and in the first grade.

I have been a really good girl this year.

I would like a Furby, some dolls, a bike, legos, American Doll clothes and a pogo stick.

Please bring Rocky and Marley some treats.

I will leave cookies and milk for yu and carrots for the reindeer.

Love, Erika

Erika’s letter, along with those of hundreds of other Rockdale area youngsters, will be published in a special section in The Reporter dated for Dec. 20.

In order to compi le the special section, the newspaper will need Santa letters from the public no later than noon, Dec. 13.

That’s also the deadline for students at Rockdale Elementary School to submit letters for publication.

A “Letters to Santa” mailbox will be placed at the entrance to the elementary office after Thanksgiving.

Kids (and parents and teachers) are reminded that letters must contain both first and last names to be published.
