Moore Schools Starting New Year
An Oklahoma City metro school district which ended the year in tragedy last May starts new classes this Friday with some students in new locations.
It’s taken a village to get the Moore Public School system up and running.
Volunteers from Cox and Target stack two truckloads of school supplies from Feed the Children at Westmoore High School for every teacher in the district.
With their schools destroyed in the tornado May 20th, Plaza Towers is holding classes at Central Junior High and Briarwood Elementary at Emmaus Baptist Church.
New Superintendent Robert Romines says now that all the kids in his district have a place to learn, all of his concerns are behind him.
“My biggest concern was that we would have our spaces ready and they would be safe structures and ready to go and we are there. We are there and very excited about what we’ve accomplished over the summer.”
Several groups stepped up to help with financial needs over the summer including almost $1 Million from DonorsChoose.org.
