Marion Local elementary students Carson Budde and Hannah Meier, playing elves, wonder how Santa will make his big trip after the reindeer come down with the flu, while the rest of the third-graders sing "How Will Santa Ever Be On Time?" Santa was played by Braden Topp during the school's performance of "Santa Rides a Jumbo Jet" on Monday evening.
