On Friday, December 21st, at morning at 9:30 a.m. the fifth grade classes at Moody Elementary School took to the track at Bulldog Stadium where they walked for 27 minutes.
This is just one of the ways that the students have shown their support.
According to MES students, Marcia Williams and Elley Evans, as kids themselves, feeling almost helpless in wanting to help show their support for Sandy Hook, they got online and came across the website hlntv.com, that offered several ideas on ways they could help. From there, they have sent 27 letters of support and have also participated in 27 prayers. However, they made a slight modification with the original number 26, choosing to also account for the shooter's mother.
The students have also sent snowflakes to their new elementary school to decorate Sandy Hook School's new home, transforming it into a winter wonderland for their return.
The "Let's Give Sandy Hook School a Winter Wonderland" Snowflake Drive is a program started by the Sandy Hook PTA. Children from all over wanting to help are invited to create snowflakes of all colors and designs to adorn the walls of the new school. Snowflakes can be mailed to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connoly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden CT 06514, by Jan. 13.
