Fairfield's PTA Council is seeking volunteers to make cutout-paper snowflakes on Saturday, Dec. 22, to help decorate the building where Sandy Hook Elementary School students will move after the holidays.

Volunteers will be making snowflakes at a workshop Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McKinley Elementary School, 60 Thompson St. in Fairfield, the council said. All materials will be provided, organizers said.

Students who survived the deadly Dec. 14 attack on Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown will resume classes after the holidays at the former Chalk Hill School in neighboring Monroe.

Newtown PTA officials have said they want to decorate Chalk Hill as a "winter wonderland" to welcome the students.

Twenty first graders and six educators died when a guman forced his way into the building and began firing.

Volunteers who have never made paper snowflakes can get instruction at Saturday's workshop, sponsors said.
