MLE honors volunteers of the year

Sara comes in once a week, sometimes twice and is open to whatever I have for her. She consistently asks to help in any way. Sara has a way with these young learners and always makes each of them feel special.

Kelly has spent hours helping in her kids’ classrooms each year and she is also the person behind the Maple Lake Facebook page. Kelly is a very dedicated person – to her children and our District!

Sean has been our go-to carpenter this year! He built our doghouse for “I Love to Read Month,” and spray-painted our clothes pins for our “School of Excellence” luncheon.

Jean has been an integral part of the success we've had this year with our new Backpack Buddies Program. She worked with our school social workers to successfully write a grant through Wright-Hennepin Co-op to obtain dollars to support the program. She has been committed to our project since the first day. Jean can best be described as caring and compassionate. We are so grateful for the partnership we have with Jean and her volunteers at the Food Shelf.


On Tuesday, June 3, Maple Lake Elementary celebrated four very special people who were chosen for the school’s “Outstanding Volunteers of the Year” award.
Their names are Sara Hagen, Kelly Pribyl, Sean Nies and Jean Skomoroh.
Everyone knows the value of an extra hand – volunteers are those people that appear with a smile on their face and two extra hands ready to help. They usually don’t like acknowledgement but the school would like to say thank you.
Whether it’s talent, patience, experience, kindness, generosity or time, these four individuals have given gifts that cannot be bought, and school staff and students believe they are extremely fortunate to have each and every one of them join them in making Maple Lake schools the best that it can be.
More information appears in this week's Messenger.

MLHS collects 335 pairs of jeans for teens

Miss Teen of Minnesota Ashley Becker poses with 335 pairs of jeans collected at Maple Lake High School as a part of Aéropostale’s Teens for Jeans campaign over a two-week span. Becker worked with High School Social Worker Nichole Rengel and the Friends of Rachel Club to organize the clothing drive. The jeans will be donated to organizations that assist homeless teens nearest to the Aéropostale store where they are donated. The campaign is a response to the fact that one in three homeless individuals is under the age of 18.
