On Saturday, the fifth-graders from Briarwood met at Red Oaks Elementary in Moore to receive the gifts the students in New Jersey helped donate.
Nearly 70 students and parents got to hang out with their friends, eat pizza and grab a book or a game to take home.
“We are just trying to keep the kids' lives normal and these gifts can introduce some normalcy back,” Dziedzic said. “This is the last day of school you never got to have. This helps them look past it, at least for the time being.”
Brad Gray came to Red Oaks Elementary on Saturday with his family. His daughter, Skylar, was in Dziedzic's class and sought shelter with her in the rest room as the tornado rampaged overhead.
Gray said the their house in Moore was cut in half by the storm and they now are living in an apartment.
“The kids need this,” he said. “We've all lost so much, so to see the kindness of strangers on the other side of the country, it really feels like everybody really cared about you.”
