"Santa's Helpers" Incorrect

We read:

"A teacher at a western Louisville elementary school was told to change a Christmas tree bulletin board about two weeks ago after another teacher complained that it might offend some non-Christian students.

The Christmas tree at Brandeis Elementary was made out of construction-paper cutouts of children's hands. Above it, it said: "Santa's Helpers," principal Servita West-Jordan said.

West-Jordan said she asked the teacher to remove the word's "Santa's Helpers" because she agreed that students in the class who were Indian or Muslim might be offended because they don't necessarily believe in Christmas or Santa Claus.
