A ‘Snow’ of Support for Sandy Hook

The art department of Robert Frost Middle School responded to a request from the National PTA and came together to support the community of Newtown, Conn.   

The organization asked schools throughout the country to use their artistic talents to craft 3-D paper snowflakes to decorate the halls of the new school building, following the closure of Sandy Hook Elementary School due to the recent tragedy. Art students got to work and created more than 100 beautiful handcrafted snowflakes with bright ribbon woven throughout the delicate patterns. The whimsical winter hanging art was sent to Newtown to welcome Sandy Hook students into their school.

In addition, middle school student Emily Mahon developed an outreach letter-writing campaign and during English language arts classes students penned personal messages of encouragement for Sandy Hook students.
