A guidance counselor at Newtown High School in Connecticut penned a thank-you note to Brewster High School for support sent in the form of banners following the Dec. 14 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary.
"The thoughts and prayers of the community have really helped us during this difficult time," the note, which is posted on the district's website, reads.
Prepared by the BHS Art Club, the green and white banners offered scors of signatures—from residents, staff and students—and sympathy messages. The goal was to let the devastated, heartbroken community know that "Brewster Stands with Newtown."
Brewster school officials say the banners were received by a "tearful staff" at Newtown High's guidance office.
Several other acts of kindness traveled from Putnam to the Sandy Hook area after the shooting. Brewster Honda invited folks to sign a giant card, and a Mahopac teacher recently designed a collage for those affected.
