Ettrick Shoe Tying Boot Camp

Ettrick Elementary students and Fort Lee partners recently got to take part in their first ever,

Tying Shoes Boot Camp”.

20 soldiers from the Fort Lee, U.S. Army 832nd Ordnance Battalion, Echo Company, taught our pre K and kindergarten students how to tie their shoes. Students were paired with with soldiers who taught them the chant:

   “Over, under, pull it tight,

        Make a bow, Pull it through to do it right.”


Big thanks to the soldiers for their time and patience with our little ones. Everyone had an amazing time!​
