PTOs and PTAs are continuing to look for ways to express concern and condolences to the Sandy Hook Elementary School community.

Yesterday we posted a blog with a number of resources and tips for parent groups to reach out to families in Newtown as well as to help their own school communities. Here are some additional resources you may find helpful.

One PTA is doing a simple but effective event: The East Ridge Elementary School in Woodinville, Wash., set up a booth outside the school where families could stop to sign a card that will be forwarded to Sandy Hook along with a donation.

If your group wants to send notes to Sandy Hook families, the U.S. Postal Service has created a special postal address for this school community. You can forward mail and messages to P.O. Box 3700, Newtown, CT 06470.

The Sandy Hook Elementary School has suggested that people wishing to make a donation can forward it to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund at

Finally, the Connecticut PTSA posted resources and tips on its site. For example, it came up with a plan to have students make snowflakes for Sandy Hook. If you want to run this as a student project at your school, you can send the snowflakes to the Connecticut PTSA at 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514, by Jan. 12, 2013.
