Second grade students from Ms. Rea Colella’s class at Michael C. Riley Elementary School in Bluffton responded to our call for letters to Santa.
I’m Bella Miller, and I’m a homeschooled 13-year-old student who lives in Bluffton. I’m interested in journalism because I love to write, and I enjoy interacting with people and hearing their stories. I enjoyed this Santa project because I got to experience the complete publishing process from start to finish. I also loved seeing the sweet letters and drawings the students submitted.
Editor’s note: At Monthly, we regularly work with interns of college age, but this is the first time an eighth grader approached us about partnering. Bella Miller did a great job with this project and we were lucky to have her help.
Special thanks to: Mrs. Colella and Kenslee Zimmerman, Jonathan Montelongo, Jillian Spencer, Lizette Roldan, Armando Guerrero, Derek Molina, Annabella Allenberg, Vanessa Martinez, Amelia Beggs and Layla
