Hello, friends. Last week, a fire devastated my second home. It has been a week of overwhelming emotions, but we now know that the elementary will be bussed to an alternate location. Our primary concern is that these students have materials because no person is currently allowed inside to retrieve any things that remain there. I am including a list compiled by elementary teachers of what is needed. If you can help in any way, please do… Also, whenever you see a firefighter, please think of all they do. Racine firefighters braved extreme conditions and a roof collapse, and they saved the rest of the school from further destruction. They are heroes.
