You know the kids from Sandy Hook Elementary School are going to Chalk Hill (an old middle school building) in January, right? The Newtown PTO is wanting their return to be VERY special. This is a letter from the PTO describing “Snowflakes for Sandy Hook”
“I have heard so many requests for ways to help Sandy Hook families. In response, I wanted to let you all know that our elementary PTO has been asked to create a winter wonderland for Sandy Hook students when they come to Chalk Hill for the remainder of the school year.
They are asking for snowflakes – as many snowflakes as we can make – to decorate the school. They will hang on windows, bulletin boards, doors and walls. They will hang from the ceiling and from desks, and anything else they can think of. Please make all of the snowflakes you can manage, and to the teachers included here, your whole school can send snowflakes as well.
There is no such thing as too many snowflakes. The kids will be allowed to take some home, so they will be replenishing them daily – it’s a fantastic idea. Please send me the name of your group/school/family so that we can make sure that the Newtown PTO can know where all of the love is coming from.
Mail your snowflakes no later than January 1st to:
Sandy Hook Snowflakes

(You can also send your snowflakes directly to the Connecticut PTSA through Jan. 12: Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514)
