Teachers are looking forward



Over the summer, Dziedzic has seen wonderful support from friends, coworkers, strangers and communities not only in Oklahoma but other states as well.

“We have been given a lot. And that has made things a whole lot easier. Red Cross has helped and donations have come in from all over the country that have gone directly to Moore Public Schools. There is Restore Moore — Project Teacher, businesses have helped out. It has been amazing, really,” Dziedzic said.

Dziedzic’s class also was showered with gifts from a classroom in New Jersey that her students had written to earlier in the year.

“I was able to give several gifts to each of the kids in my homeroom and several of the other fifth-graders who lost their homes. I had books left over. I feel so fortunate. I’ve been donated so many books, my problem is bookcases, which is a good problem to have,” Dziedzic said.

But the million-dollar question on many students minds is will there be a place for recess at the relocated school? The answer is yes. A group from Texas will arrive shortly after school starts to install not one, but two playgrounds on the campus of Emmaus Baptist Church.

“They (the playgrounds) will be left there as a gift to Emmaus for letting us use their facility,” Dziedzic said.
