At Central Christian School, there is a different focus on Christmas than Santa. Mrs. Dillard’s fourth grade class shared their Christmas wish lists for the community.

My first wish is that Redmond will have a Christmas party open to everyone. My second wish is that more Christian schools will be built in Redmond. My last wish is that homeless people will get homes and food for free until they can afford it. —Belle

I have three wishes. My very first wish is that we have a homeless home. My 2 would be a kids Redmond art museum. 3rd, No abortion or child abuse. —Simone

My first wish is for a children’s ministry with music and art. I wished this wish so that kids can travel to other countries and share the gospel.

Then kids can earn money without having to do chores. —Madeline
