Send a snowflake to Newtown

20 Dec

I received this email this morning from a teacher at Willink Middle School. I think it is such a wonderful idea, and I know that so many in our community would want to participate, so I wanted to pass it along to everyone immediately.

Hello everyone:

I learned of something simple anyone can do for the grieving community we all have on our minds.

The state PTA, teachers, parents and local folks are collecting snowflakes to decorate the new school for the Newtown staff and children. They can be any color and made of anything you want. I think the idea started as paper cut outs like we all made when we were little. The school they will inhabit is bare and someone thought it might be a nice showing snowflakes from all over the country, world, as a show of support….

The snowflakes can be mailed to the address below. The community plans to decorate over the break, so be sure to send them soon.

Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514

It just gives me chills to think of that school covered head to toe with snowflakes from around the country, and around the world. Please pass the word and lets get everyone we know involved in this effort. It’s such a simple way to show our support.
