Racine students gather for breakfast following fire
RACINE -- A handful of students, parents and teachers from Mitchell Elementary and Mitchell Middle School in Racine gathered at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer Friday morning.
The church is just down the street from the school, where a fire broke out early Thursday, causing heavy damage to the campus' gymnasium area.
The Racine County School District provided free lunch and breakfast for students, even though the school day had been canceled.
For many, the gathering was a way to cope with what happened.
