Lakewood High School math students cut out more than 1,000 snowflakes that were then sent to Newton, Conn., to decorate Sandy Hook Elementary School's new home in what had been a vacant middle school.
An online call went out earlier suggesting the snowflake activity as a way to show support for the Sandy Hook students and staff after the shootings there Dec. 14 that killed 26 people.
