(The AEGIS Alliance) – Christmas is a Pagan holiday, and Santa Claus is a Pagan figure. You don’t see kids saying Jesus Christ put the present under the tree, it’s always ‘Santa Claus’.

A school district in New Jersey has been apologizing following a substitute teacher telling first graders that Santa Claus is not real. Cedar Hill School Principal Michael Raj wrote a letter to parents after becoming aware of the situation. The Principal said in the letter he immediately talked to the substitute teacher about “her poor judgement.”

“I am sending this letter so that you are aware of the situation and if the conversation comes up at home over the next few days you can take appropriate steps to maintain the childhood innocence of the holiday season,” Raj wrote in the letter.

Then he made an apology to parents, stating that as a parent himself, he is “truly aware of the sensitive nature” of that being announced to students.

An upset parent, Lisa Simek, says the substitute teacher told students that Santa Claus is not real and that parents “just buy presents and place them under the tree.”

Simek says the teacher also attempted to ruin other holiday’s spirit.  “She told them reindeer can’t fly and elves are not real and elf on the shelf is just a pretend doll that your parents move around,” Simek wrote in a Facebook post.

“She did not even stop there: the tooth fairy is not real because mom or dad just sneak into your room in the middle of the night and put money under your pillow, same goes for the Easter bunny. She told them magic does not exist. There is no such thing as magic anything,” Simek continued.

The Superintendent of Montville Schools, Rene Rovtar released a statement and said she was “disheartened and “troubled” by this incident.

“The childhood wonder associated with all holidays and traditions is something I personally hold near and dear in my own heart,” Rene Rovtar mentioned.

Administrators haven’t released the named of the teacher and have not said if she will continue teaching in the school district. However, Lisa Simek had sympathy for the substitute teacher.

“Moral of the story: Just be kind,” Simek wrote. “When in doubt, Always choose being kind, and you will always be in the right.”
