I wish to apologize to you, the school, and the parents (and the District, if necessary). I didn't mean to be controversial or inconsiderate. I just didn't know that saying, "Some families believe in Santa, and some do not," would cause so much trouble to Fifth Graders.
I respect the right of every person to believe what they choose. I promise not to mention Santa ever again.
If there is any other form of apology I have to make to keep my job, please let me know.
