The Bristol School community donated over 28 large boxes of books for Mitchell School in Racine, which was damaged by a fire on Feb. 27. These included gently used books from Bristol teachers, families and the community. Also included were new books that customers purchased from the Bristol School Scholastic Book Fair to donate. Books ranged from fiction to non-fiction, picture books and chapter books for grades K-5. There also was a change collection at the cash register during the book fair and also some families wrote checks that netted $139.51. This will be given to Mitchell as a cash donation to purchase needed supplies. Bristol School is also donating surplus office items which includes, note pads, pens, pencils and paper which was received through the NAEIR Organization.

    This is not the first fundraising I’ve seen for the Mitchell school, and I’ll bet it won’t be the last. My question is, why does this school need things donated? Didn’t they have insurance? If so, wasn’t it enough to make them whole? If not, is this the norm for schools and insurance and would we be in the same boat here in Salem, Bristol and any school around? Again, just asking.
