Star the Reindeer and Santa visit kindergarten students

Two classes of kindergarten students from Inlet View Elementary School walked to Delaney Park to visit Star the Reindeer and learn about him from his owner, Albert Whitehead, on Thursday.

The children got a surprise visit from Santa Claus, who said he was there to take a look at Star, a “reserve reindeer” for his team when he makes the trip around the world delivering presents on Christmas Eve.

Santa asked the children how many days were left until Christmas Eve and, of course: “Who’s been good this year?”
