Elf on the Shelf 2019

Dear Abercarn Primary,

Christmas is coming soon! Mrs Claus and I have been very, very busy making toys for all the good boys and girls. I hear you have all been good for your teachers. So, I have sent you one of my special mischievous Elf friends to stay with you until Christmas. He will come back to the North Pole every night to tell me how you have behaved. I sure hope you are good boys and girls so I can bring you special treats and presents. Look out for the Elf on your school social networking sites to see what mischief he’s been up to in your school! Make sure not to touch him or the magic will be lost!

Don’t forget… follow his journey on your school website and social network sites to see what mischief he may create!

Merry Christmas! 

Santa Claus

P.S. Don’t forget to leave me milk and cookies on Christmas Eve! Rudolph especially loves carrots!


Day 24: 

It’s time for me to go back to the North Pole until next year! I’ve had a fantastic time at Abercarn primary and I’ve been so impressed with all the children! Well done! Have a very Happy Christmas everyone! See you next year!
