Bloggers: How YOU Can Make a Difference for Sandy Hook

Monday, December 17, 2012


As a member of PTA, I wanted to share with you a way you can help students from Sandy Hook Elementary School.  This was in my inbox today.

From 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 the Connecticut PTSA. Here is the address:

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

I will be hosting a Snowflake Linky for Sandy Hook Elementary School.  Please make a snowflake or two, write a post, and link-up on Saturday, January 5, 2013.  I will have the post up by 9 AM CST.

Will you join me in spreading a little Winter Wonderland joy to these students?

Will you spread the word on your blog?

Please join me in encouraging the Sandy Hook students as they return to school in January.

Until next time...
