"We're a school too," says Secretary Barb Chaput. "It could have easily been us, you never know."

While it is a small gesture, the hope is that those affected know they're not alone, and that others are thinking of them.
 
"It's just a little thing, but if we all did that little thing it would be a big thing," she argues. "Just to show them our support. They've probably never heard of Fort St. John, but I never heard of them either before now."
 
Chaput says a tragedy like this can be difficult to explain to children, and she's heard some discussion of it in the halls, and believes some classes have been discussing it.
 
Twenty children and six adults were shot dead at Sandy Hook Elementary last Friday.
