Prayers and School Spirit for #SandyHook Elementary #PrayForNewtown

There is lots of confusion on the school colors and mascot for the Sandy Hook Elementary school in CT! When Saving and More posted for everyone to wear school colors on Monday where I saw the confusion really started I decided to research... There are other Sandy Hook schools who have reached out to the school which is how I realized in my research they were not the correct school... One in Virginia for example says:

So I continued to search, found that the blue and yellow colors everyone has been sharing are actually the Newtown High School colors and then I found the correct Sandy Hook Elementary School website featuring the colors Green and White and sporting the mascot the Eagle! Here are some ways I verified the correct school.

In their school spirit document  it states: (Located on the front page of the website)

In the news, Mrs. Kaitlin Roig was featured as a first grade teacher at the school!
she is the first grade teacher at the school which you can find her name and email on the staff directory here -

Here is the Librarians info on their magazine "Eagles' Expressions"

and then finally I noticed you can purchase "SHS Spirit Wear" (located on the right side of the website just above the tree) which is probably the best way to purchase and show respect for the lives lost in this tragic event! Purchase directly from the school to help them raise funds and share school spirit! Lots of options for kids and adults.. 

SHS Spirit Wear order forms will be sent home with your child.  Please click on the links below to see color images of what is available for sale.

This morning I woke up,
looked at the Connecticut sky.
I had a good feeling
I can't tell you why.

I kissed Mommy goodbye,
and told Daddy I love you.
And before we separated at the sign,
I told sister see you soon.

The bell rung,
we all rushed inside.
It was warm and loving
like a campfire light.

The teacher smiled,
my friends waved hello.
We started class,
but before you know..

The door busted open,
a man with a gun.
I was scared and broken
I looked at the sun.

The same sun I saw
with so much love.
Now brought me worry
but I'd stay tough.

I felt a pain
go through my whole body.
I saw a light
and an awful goodbye.

I saw Mommy's face,
her beautiful, soft lips.
I kissed her this morning,
she was something I'd miss.

I smelled Daddy's cologne,
when he hugged me today.
He left for work,
not knowing what life would take.

Sister was only a few blocks away,
in a classroom, I could see
I'll never get to say
how much she means to me.

My 6th birthday was coming soon,
I was dreaming of ponies
and shoes.

Then I felt a hand
touch my face.
I was overwhelmed
in an amazing grace.

God said to me,
"don't be worry, child.
you've been here before.
it's just been a while."

I looked on my back,
where I found wings.
I felt a halo
and clouds under my feet.

With me, when I looked,
were my friends by my side.
That man sent us here,
but I"m alright.

Maybe he was sick,
maybe he was crazy.
Maybe he hurt us
because he was hurting, maybe?

I watch the tears
all over the country.
Over the few years
their pain because of me.

I watched my family
break apart.
but they knew
I was in their hearts.

I don't know much,
but I know this;
my mommy should've never
had to bury her own kid.

Although it's tough,
although it's hard
I think God would want us to forgive
th killer in our hearts.

What you dont know,
but what I'll tell you,
is I'm just fine.
in this heaven of mine.

Maybe this will teach you
to never regret a thing.
Be happy with what God gave you,
because you could've been me.

Now, maybe I was young,
maybe I didn't deserve it.
But maybe I taught a lesson,
now please...learn it.

Love with everything,
always smile a lot.
Remember this lesson,
that I taught.

Wipe the tears,
enjoy the years.
Time goes by fast,
you don't know which day is your last.

Pray for my famlily,
for my friend's family, too.
I'm sure they'll be grateful,
and thankful to you.

I'm an angel,
all brand new.
I came up here
this afternoon.

I would be 6 years old,
but God has a plan.
Remember this feeling of distraught,
remember this lesson that I taught.
