TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Schools and school districts in Pima County were thinking about the folks in Newtown, Connecticut.

Today in three school districts, students, staff members and teachers were showing support for Sandy Hook Elementary School.

It began early in the morning at Flowing Wells High School. As the students were beginning to take their finals. They could stop by a table at the center of campus, to write a note to the families and students from Sandy Hook. "The small cards we're turning into paper cranes, a chain of cranes which we're going to send to them. The big post card, will be one giant post card for them to just all read together," said Kevin Orduno Flowing Wells student.

At Tucson Unified School District Headquarters, administrators and staff in the building made snowflakes. The snowflakes are going to the school that will receive the Sandy Hook elementary School students.

A group of students from Andrad Polytechnic High School in Vail, wore green and white. Sophomore Ashley Wycoff made the call out to her fellow students to wear the school colors of Sandy Hook. Wycoff said, "Basically to show the students that they're not alone and people care about them and they can help them." They answered that call and praised her for her support of the school.
