We all know that Christmas is a busy and hectic time for Santa.  This year, he received helped from members of the Pottstown High School’s Student Government. 

First graders throughout the district were encouraged to write letters to Santa.  Members of Student Government then helped Santa by writing individual and personal response letters to each student which they hand delivered and read to students throughout the district.  In addition to Santa’s response letter, each student received a candy cane and reindeer food to help guide the reindeer to their houses on Christmas night.

Mr. Mark Agnew, sponsor of Student Government, said, “I am so proud of the members of Student Government who came up with this idea on their own.  They spent a lot of time doubling as Santa’s helpers in writing response letters to the students.”

Kelsey Shumaker, one of Santa’s helpers said, “I’m not sure who was more excited the first grade students or us when we had the opportunity to read Santa’s letters and handout his gifts.  It was great knowing that the students went home that day looking forward to a visit from Santa.”

Student Government members taking part included:  Becky McCloy, Jake Gery, Sage Reinhart, Kelsey Shumaker, Derek Beyer, Nate Flickinger.
