Students from Bainbridge Island schools gathered at the Bainbridge Island Boys & Girls Club to write messages of hope and condolences on a banner that will be sent to the survivors of the Newtown shooting tragedy.

More than a dozen fourth- and fifth-grade students from the Torch Club met at the club this past week to make the poster.

“I wrote a message that says, ‘We feel bad for you from the bottom of our hearts,'" said Parker Hutchinson, a student from Sonoji Sakai Intermediate.

The club plans to send the banner to a Boys & Girls Club near Newtown.
