The following is a message from the CT PTA regarding the snowflakes for Sandy Hook project. I want to thank all the scrollers out there that contributed to this wonderful project. I know some will be disappointed that they can no longer send additional snowflakes but it's important we follow their wishes.
Thank you to everyone who has donated snowflakes on behalf of the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School and the community of Newtown. We know that each snowflake represents the emotional outreach of the person making it. We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity from around not just the country but the world. At this time, we have enough beautiful snowflakes to blanket the community of Newtown. Therefore, with regret we must close the snowflake project to further donations. Please take this idea and your snowflakes and create a winter wonderland of your own in your community as a show of solidarity for our Newtown families. Please share your winter wonderlands with us. We would love to share your pictures with the families of Sandy Hook and all the other participating communities. Also please read the message below from the PTA of the Sandy Hook Elementary School for another wonderful way to help. Thank you for your heartfelt and amazing creations and for all of your magnificent notes and kind wishes for the Newtown community.
A Message from the PTA of Sandy Hook Elementary School
On behalf of the Sandy Hook Elementary School PTA, we would like to thank everyone for their contributions of snowflakes. These wonderfully artistic and heartfelt creations will be used to decorate the halls of Sandy Hook School at Chalk Hill, as well as other community locations around Newtown.
For those of you who would like to do more to honor the memory of our students and staff, we encourage schools to consider adopting Sandy Hook Elementary School's Project Eagle community service effort and adapting it locally.
Project Eagle is a group that was formed in 2011 under the direction of Principal Dawn Hochsprung. The intent was, and continues to be, finding ways for our elementary school students to engage in service efforts that help those in need, especially children.
Together, this group of students and parents has embraced initiatives including a book drive to replenish classroom shelves, the creation of original works of art for the children's wing of a local hospital, Earth Day recycling drives, a Lego collection for a family counseling center, a concert for residents of a senior center, holiday gifts for a local women's shelter, and a pajama drive for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
You can read more about Project Eagle on the Sandy Hook Elementary School web site.
