Snowflakes for Sandy Hook

Snowflake iClipArtThe Connecticut PTSA is asking for help to create a winter wonderland at Sandy Hook Elementary’s new school and they are requesting that people send paper snowflakes to decorate it.

The snowflakes need to be mailed to: Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514, by January 12, 2013.

Melanie Brumley (6th grade) would like to ask her fellow students at HBMS to make snowflakes as well, and if they don’t want to mail them directly, she can collect them and mail them. Bring them to the school by January 7 (which is the first day back from winter break) so they get there on time. Your whole family can help. Don’t know how to make them? Here are some resources:

A message from Miss Schroerlucke


Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am asking you to continue supporting your student’s academic success by supporting the final exam schedule at Holcomb Bridge Middle School. Please be aware of the times so students are in ALL EXAMS the entire time. Please do not check your student out early or leave for the holidays earlier than the last day of exams at 2:55pm on Wednesday, December 19th.

You and I have always partnered in the world class education of your student. You and I have placed our emphasis on CCGPS Standards of knowledge this fall semester… and the semester does not end until 2:55pm on Wednesday, December 19th. Once again, I am asking your support. Graduations for the classes of 2017, 2018 and 2019 begin here at Holcomb Bridge! Academic discipline, habits and schedules for exams are a vital part of middle school, high school and college success.

Thank you for being my partner!
