Snowflakes for Sandy Hook
december 21, 2012
“This makes me feel like I’m giving a little bit of
joy to the Newtown students after the terrible things that happened in
their school,” said Schuylerville fifth-grader Meghan Clarke.
She and her classmates in Mrs. Schwartz’s class are joining children across the nation in an effort to create a winter wonderland in the new school where Sandy Hook students will be relocated. The children will begin classes in the new location in January.
Meghan saw an article online about the project and immediately asked if her class could participate.
“Yesterday, we made 128 snowflakes. I think we’ll
have a lot more before we’re done,” she said. “We’re hoping we might
make the students feel a little better if they know other people are
thinking about them.”
