Outstanding Volunteers

Outstanding Volunteers

Mapleton Elementary has great volunteers and staff who help our children learn and succeed. They go above and beyond what is expected in giving more back to the school and students. Monthly, will recognize a few of them for the good work that they do.

Beth Larsen has been volunteering for 3 years in Mrs. Bennett’s class and is still going strong. Cornelia Wilson volunteered for 3 years in Mrs. Jensen’s class. These “grandma helpers” give of their time and love to make a difference for our children. We want to thank them for their outstanding service.

Hope Crandall works at the school in the mornings and volunteers in Mrs. Bennett’s class in the afternoon. Mrs. Bennett said, “Hope was there from the beginning when I was hired 4 years ago, just three days before school started. Her granddaughter was in my class and my first call when I got hired was to Hope. I told her I need a grandma helper and truly I couldn’t have taught that year without her.” She has given hundreds of hours in one-on-one time with students over the last 4 years. Thank you Hope. You are making a great difference for those students that you give so much time to.
