Send snowflakes to Sandy Hook

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.

The Connecticut Parent-Teacher Association encourages students to be as creative as possible, remembering that no two snowflakes are alike. Please make and send snowflakes by Jan. 12, 2013 to the Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway

Building 12, Suite 103; Hamden, CT 06514.

Here are some tips from Martha Stewart on how to make paper snowflakes.

The Connecticut PTSA is also collecting monetary donations for the “Sandy Hook Fund” to provide ongoing support to the community. Please send checks to the Connecticut PTSA address listed above.

The PTSA also encourages group fundraising projects, like walk-a-thons, spirits days, pajama days, etc., which may be scheduled at your convenience. Student-run coin drive donations should be submitted by Feb. 14. If your school decides to do a group fundraising project for Sandy Hook, please let us know.

The Newtown community has requested only monetary donations at this time. For service or product donation inquiries,  contact newtownboe@gmail.com. To contact Sandy Hook PTA,  email sandyhook@ctpta.org.

Send all snowflakes and donations to:
