  ToyThe Toy Corner at St. Michael

Hi Saint Michael's Family!
You may notice a little red wagon up by the school office if you are at the school in the next few weeks. It is "The Toy Corner" wagon and we would love your help filling it with new and used toys for kids aged 0-16.  The Toy Corner is a non-profit organization located in downtown Savage and we give toys to families in need that live in Scott County. This is our most critical time of year and any help would be appreciated.  The toys most needed are for kids aged 5 and up. The last day for collecting toys will be December 12th. (Katie Vander Weit and Susie Williams, Co-Directors of The Toy Corner and former St. Michael's school parents)
  ThanksThank you to our Media Center Volunteers!

Many Hands Make Light Work
A special thanks to these following media center volunteers who graciously give up their time each week to help re-shelve, pull, and locate books in the library for our children. Because of their help, students are able to find books they're looking for on a weekly basis! We wouldn't have a fully functioning media center without their help!
  • Mrs. Martell
  • Mrs. Sher
  • Mrs. Gleason
  • Mrs. Poyne
  • Mrs. Chappuis 
We're always looking for additional volunteers! If you would like to help, please contact Mrs. Morgan at morgan@saintmpl.org
