Sandy Hook thanks IL

Friday, October 11, 2013 - Updated: 8:22 PM

INDIAN LAKE - The faculty at Indian Lake Central School recently received a postcard from the Sandy Hook Elementary School PTA expressing thanks for the blizzard of snowflakes the children of ILCS sent those of Sandy Hook.

ILCS students and teachers sent paper snowflakes to Connecticutt in January to welcome the children of Sandy Hook back to school after the shootings there Dec. 14, 2012.

According to first grade teacher, Kelly Walker, who spearheaded the project, “Several classes PreK-12 submitted snowflakes for the project. We sent one large box with well over 200 snowflakes in it.”

The message on the thank-you card reads: “Thank you for your heartfelt, generous, and thoughtful contribution to Snowflakes for Sandy Hook. Because of your efforts and many others, we received snowflakes in all shapes, sizes and forms from schools, PTAs, community centers, and families across the country and around the world.

“Sandy Hook students, staff and families have been the recipient of a blizzard of love and support in the form of snowflakes, and we could not be more thankful! Our community has taken great comfort in the global outpouring of support from wonderful people like you. We will always treasure our blizzard of love.”

In addition, the ILCS Faculty Association sent a care package of chocolates and coffee to the staff of Sandy Hook to help them get through the difficult transition back to work after the shootings. Adam Lanza, 20, killed 20 children and six adults and wounded others.
