Book Inspires Shoeshine Stand

After two days of operating a shoeshine stand, the third graders have become skilled at shining, buffing, and polishing shoes and boots of all sizes and shapes. On Tuesday and Wednesday, September 16 and 17, parents, grandparents, faculty, and staff lined up to have their shoes shined by the students who were inspired by the book “The Shoeshine Girl” by Clyde Robert Bulla. The generous tips they collected will be used to purchase fleece fabric for blankets, which they will make and donate to The Red Devils, an organization that supports breast cancer patients. The annual project, coordinated by third grade teacher Margaret Bitz, began in 2009.
