School administrators said that students were sharing both comfort and tears. However, what they left behind when they went home today was a school decorated in their best thoughts, memories, images and prayers—depicted in hundreds of chalk inscriptions all across the school grounds.

NewsWatch 12's Eliana Sheriff took a walk around that chalk memorial today, to show how students are remembering their classmates.
