"I just thought this would be very nice for kids," McCain said. She's a student at the Graland Country Day School in Denver.
The Connecticut Parent Teacher Student Association created Project Snowflake to help welcome Sandy Hook students back to classes in January. Organizers want to decorate the hallways like a "Winter Wonderland" with snowflakes made by people from around the world.
"I just want them to be happier and just know that this school's safe and that they're going to be fine," said McCain.
Dalton McCurdy is a science teacher at 8th Grade science teacher at Graland Country Day School. She grew up near Newtown and has family in the Sandy Hook community.
McCurdy started the effort at her school with hopes that it will spread around the Denver area.
"Just to show our support in some very small way and you know the thought of those kids walking into a hall completely covered with snowflakes," McCurdy said. "It makes me feel that it's going to be maybe the tiniest bit easier for them."
If you want to make your own snowflakes, you have until Jan. 12 to send them to Connecticut.
"I'm going to encourage my family to make snowflakes, and I'm going to spread the word to my neighbors," said McCain.
