LANGLEY — The Record visited with kindergartners at South Whidbey Elementary for some holiday cheer this year. South Whidbey’s youngsters were eager for the winter break, and more importantly, presents.

Kids wrote letters to Santa and winter wishes asking for more family togetherness, Legos, puppies, cookies to rain from the sky, a “rockstar cat,” a remote control motorcycle, a guitar and nail polish.

Here’s what students in Emily Czerwonka’s and Diane Burgess’ kindergarten classes wished for this holiday season.

“I wish for my room to be Legoland.”

“I wrote about my mother and dad and family to be together.”






Jedruik Pinch, 5

“I want a tiny, real puppy.”
