Snowflakes for Sandy Hook Students

The Connecticut PTA has asked for snowflakes to decorate the new school that will house the Sandy Hook students. Sharpen those scissors and grab some white paper, we have some snowflakes to make.

At this awful time, I'm sure we would all love to do anything we can to help the community of Newtown, Conn. The Connecticut PTA has asked for snowflakes to decorate the new school that will house the Sandy Hook students.

Our city needs to help make this wish come true. The Attleboro School Committe as well as the principals of Brennan Middle and Willett Elementrary schools have agreed. They have been asked to make one snowflake for each classroom. Production will start as soon as the children return from vacation.

Mayor Kevin Dumas is in the process of creating snowflakes for each department—fire, police, public works, etc.

Our city should rally together and make 100 very special snowflakes for this grieving community. We all need to channel our energy into something positive for a community that will never be the same again.

Snowflake Specifications

In the center please place a wish. On the outer edges, add the names of the group. Examples can be seen in the attached images. Each snowflake should be laminated for safety reasons. 4x4-12x12 are acceptable sizes, and please do not advertise a business.

Remember, some schools have separated church and schools, so a "God Bless" message on a snowflake might not be hung. I know some of you will be outraged by this, but this is not the time or the place for this discussion. Remember, this community needs our help, not a debate.
 
Due Date & Drop off

Mayor Dumas has a drop-off bin in his office at City Hall. Pleasant Printinghas been nice enough to give us a great deal on laminating. The cost will be $1 per snowflake. Pleasant Printing will also collect them. They even have a drive-through window. The last day of collection will be Friday, Jan. 4.

A big Thank You to Pleasant Printing for the discount, and the donation of laminating services for the snowflakes. Thank you in advance for helping make this wish come true.
