Oroville, Calif. -Students from Berry Creek School received some help and got to see their teachers for the first time since the Bear Fire devastated their school.

The students gathered at Ophir Elementary and were given blankets, teddy-bears, and treats.

Ophir Elementary will be their new school when students are allowed to attend in-person classes again.

One mom said it was exciting to see the students and teachers back together.

"It is amazing, because I have three kids who go to this school. I have an oldest in third grade, and a second year old, and she is in first, so I mean just to see that them giving these to these kids to make sure they are in good spirits about this it's amazing. It's amazing for them to feel this still," said Lillian Day. 

Berry Creek Principal and Superintendent Patsy Oxford said she was happy to help as much as she could. 

"34 of our 35 families lost everything, so we wanted them to know we are here for them, we care about them, and this is just the start. Just to see them giving these to these kids to make sure they are in good spirits about this it's amazing," said Oxford. 

Oxford said they are hoping to be able to do donations for their students every two to three weeks.
