In a Jan. 29 story about a planned children's museum in Newtown, Conn., The Associated Press erroneously reported that the Association of Children's Museums launched a national fundraising effort. Museums across the nation are raising money for the project, but the association is not involved.
Months before she was killed in a gunman's rampage, Sandy Hook Elementary School Principal Dawn Hochsprung wrote a letter expressing her excitement over an effort to bring a children's museum to Newtown.
She said they are hoping to raise all they need without seeking any money from an $8.5 million fund set up by the United Way to support the community after the massacre.
"These children were our children's friends," she said. "We haven't decided how it will be done, except that it will be done in a cheerful way that celebrates childhood and education. Because that's what this is about: creating a cheerful place, filled with learning and enjoyment."
