Volunteers make a difference at Maple Lake Schools

Marie Mavencamp has been volunteering at Maple Lake Elementary since 2007.
To the kids she meets in the hallway she’s the “lady who dresses up.” But she is much more than that.
A retired school teacher, one of Mavencamp’s roles is as a story book reader. Once a month she dresses up in a costume donated by The Costume Shoppe in Maple Lake, and reads a book to kindergarten through third grade students in the school media center.
“It’s fun, and I enjoy being silly with the kids,” she said.
Mavencamp is one of 300 or so volunteers that donate their time in some capacity, whether assisting teachers in their day-to-day activities or helping out with special events.
