Midlakes Elementary School Student Council and the National Elementary Honor Society helped collect approximately 450 pairs of shoes as part of a character-building initiative to learn more about empathy for the month of March by putting themselves in someone else’s shoes.

Shoes, sneakers, sandals, boots and other footwear were donated the week before spring break and will go to benefit local families and community organizations during the Super Shoe Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. on May 1. Rain date is May 8.

The project is part of the District’s Character Strong social-emotional curriculum.
