First it was teacher Raphael Pantalone who began remembering Princess Diana through his artwork, then all his students joined in.
Pantalone, art teacher at Conococheague and Hancock elementary schools, began sketching a picture of Princess Diana to go with 15 condolence books his mother is sending to London.
Pantalone said when he began drawing Princess Diana, his students wanted to know what they could do.
A week later, 1,000 students from the two schools added their own artwork of the Princess of Wales.
"It really surprised me. Every one of the students seemed to know a little about it," said Pantalone.
The pencil and crayon depictions of the princess and her funeral will be sent to London, along with condolence books that were signed by Princess Diana supporters at a Pittsburgh funeral home managed by Pantalone's mother.
