Newport Elementary students make feel-good Christmas purchases


First-grader Matisse Moore has a Christmas plan. He's not going to let his family even see their presents until the holiday arrives.

Amber Wiersgalla, also a first-grader, didn't agree. After thinking it over, she wants her mother to have her present as soon as she gets home from school.

Brayden Soto didn't have a plan for delivering what he bought; he just wanted to make sure he got a gift "for my grandma."
