Carney and Woodbridge elementary schools make snowflakes to support Sandy Hook


Students from Carney and Woodbridge elementary schools joined students from around the nation in responding to an invitation to support the students at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut as they move into a new school building on Thursday, January 3, 2013.

In response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook, the Connecticut and Sandy Hook PTSAs asked students to help create a "winter wonderland" by crafting snowflakes to be hung throughout the hallways.

When Christina Lentz, Grade 5 teacher at Woodbridge, heard about the project from the school's technology teacher Nicholas Schiner, a class project was created.  Her students jumped into action by cutting, taping, and stapling paper together and making beautiful snowflakes. 


Similarly at Carney Elementary, teachers wanted to demonstrate their love and to send positive thoughts to Sandy Hook Elementary students and staff. The Carney snowflakes each include kind words or sayings to let the Sandy Hook children know that Carney students care and are thinking of them.
