So back in December right after the Sandy Hook tragedy, I heard that they were collecting snowflakes made by anyone to decorate the school when the students returned to school in January. My 4th graders and I took the opportunity to lend a helping hand and cheer some students up. We made about 100 snowflakes and I sent them out just after Christmas.
Our family just came back from vacation up in the mountains of Julian, CA. When I went to go check the mail I found a thank you letter from the Sandy Hook PTA thanking me and my students for the snowflakes. I will definitely have my students back sometime in the beginning of the year for a meeting so they can see the thank you note too. I think they would feel honored!
