If you are moved to reach out to the children and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary and to the broader Newtown, CT community, please read the following excerpt from the National PTA:
“National PTA and the Connecticut PTSA pledge our unwavering support to the Newtown community. In the past few days, we have met with PTA leaders of all of the schools in Newtown, including the Sandy Hook PTA, and community leaders who have requested our help in supporting the families. For those of us who are looking to be of assistance in the aftermath, we share the following projects in need of your support:
Welcome Students to a Winter Wonderland
When school resumes for Sandy Hook, it will be in a new building. Parent-volunteers are working to ensure that the students are welcomed back by a winter wonderland with the entire school decorated with as many unique snowflakes as possible. We encourage senders to be as creative as possible, remembering that no two snowflakes are alike. Please make and send snowflakes by January 12, 2013 to:
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514
Donating and Organizing Fundraisers for Sandy Hook Elementary School
