PHOTOS: Sandy Hook Victims Remembered at Higgins Middle School

The 1,450 students of Higgins Middle School and their teachers walked together for 27 minutes in memory of the 26 students and teachers who died last Friday as well as the mother of the shooter.

The 1,450 students of Higgins Middle School and their teachers walked together for 27 minutes Friday morning in memory of the 26 students and teachers who died on Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School as well as the mother of the shooter, who was killed at her home.

Higgins Principal Todd Bucey said more than $3,000 was raised Friday morning, which will be donated to the Connecticut PTSA Sandy Hook Fund.

Students and staff who participated in the walk were invited to wear green and white (Sandy Hook's colors) and offer a $1 donation (or more) or donate a card or snowflake.

Many walkers also paused to sign cards, expressing their condolences, that will be sent along to Connecticut as well.

Thank you! Higgins students for raising this money in such a tough economy. I think the Sandy Hook community will be at least comforted to know that you are there thinking about them and trying to take some action.

Way to go Peabody teens and Higgins Faculty. Thank you to Ms. Kim Frank for organizing such a tremendous show of support and solidarity for the Sandy Hook community.
