Groton Girl Scout Junior Troop 66109 and Julettes are coordinating a community collection point as part of a national effort to create and send paper snowflakes to Newtown Connecticut and the children of Sandy Hook Elementary for their new school. The Connecticut Parent Teacher Student Association has come up with a unique way for students nationwide to show their support for the students of Sandy Hook Elementary School. They are working with the PTA in Newtown and at Sandy Hook Elementary and are spearheading Snowflakes for Sandy Hook. The idea is to express caring and concern for the students of Sandy Hook by helping set up a snowflake-filled winter wonderland at their new school.
Troop leader Deb Mendel urged Groton kids and parents to “Get creative!! No two snowflakes are alike. The snowflakes will be displayed at Chalk Hill, the new school being set up for the children who attended Sandy Hook elementary.”
“I need to collect all snowflakes by January 6, 2013. Put your snow flakes in a plastic ziplock bag and drop them off at the Main Street Cafe on Main Street in Groton. There will be box well marked for this collection!”
