What do you give a fourth grader for Christmas? We asked; we found the answers

Question: What do you give a fourth grader for Christmas? Answer: Read on and you will find out. We gave fourth graders in Tami Hardy's class a Christmas writing assignment for Christmas. We asked them to construction some lists. And so they did. We offer you the answers to the questions of fourth graders Christmas wish lists (according to the fourth grader) of their mom and their dad. Then, we asked them for their own list.

As an alternative with wish list, some students compiled lists of five things they wish they'd hear and other wishes.

It all follows:

Bluffton High School grad Petty Officer Blaize Potts, serving in the United States Coast Guard in Alaska, recently received a citation for outstanding achievement while serving as flight mechanic aboard a Coast Guard HH-65C helicopter this past January. This rescue was selected for an award to be presented at a helicopter expo in Houston in February 2010.

The crew of which Potts was a member was dispatched from Cold Bay, Alaska, to evacuate a severely injured crewman with severe head trauma from the F/V Kodiak.
