Langley, are you writing to Santa?

Christmas is fast approaching and we need your help, Langley.

Local families and local schools can submit Letters to Santa for the annual Langley Advance holiday supplement.

Readers love the kids’ letters and artwork.

The deadline would be early December so don’t hesitate.

This offer is only open to Langley public and private elementary schools and Langley families, and arrangements must be made in advance with reporter Heather Colpitts (CLICK here to email her).

Here’s how to be part of it:

– have the kids do up letters/drawings for Santa. We ask that no lined paper be used. Plain paper or holiday photocopies for the kids to fill in are fine. The kids can use pencils, pens, crayons, paints, etc for decoration. We ask that the materials be left as the children create them, no spelling corrections, etc as that’s part of the charm for readers.

– put the name, grade and school of each child on the back. We would also like the parent/teacher/representative’s contact information (email and cell number for newsroom use only). If the submission is from a school or youth group, the teacher/representative submitting the materials must check that the kids items can go in the newspaper.

– submit the package to the Langley Advance by Dec. 5. It can be dropped off at the office or contact reporter Heather Colpitts to arrange pick up. For any after hours drop offs, we have a mail slot in the door.

We use a selection in the publication, some reproduced to show the kids art and many typeset. That material and extra items are also published on our website.

The artwork can be returned once we’ve prepped it for our supplement (around mid-December). Just let us know.

If there are any questions, contact us.
