UPDATE: They have plenty of snowflakes and can't take any more!
"Millions of snowflakes were sent in from all over the world. The school was a winter wonderland for the students of Sandy Hook Elementary School's first day back since the tragedy. So many infact there was a 18 wheeler truck full of them and still more were coming to Newtown."

Last week's tragedy in Connecticut was devastating for parents, teachers, and students at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Those students will be returning to a new school after the winter break, which hasn't been used for a while. The children need your help in creating a winter wonderland when they get there! Newtown PTSA has asked the Instructables community for help.
You can help by creating paper snowflakes to help decorate the new school, and sending it to them!
