• Above and Beyond
    Many Anoka-Hennepin staff members go above and beyond normal job expectations to ensure that students receive a high quality education in a safe and nurturing environment.

    The Above & Beyond Awards involve students, staff, parents and community members in recognizing and rewarding Anoka-Hennepin employees — teachers, secretaries, cooks, paras, custodians and others — who consistently go that extra mile so students can be successful.  
    This program is a joint effort of the district and the Anoka-Hennepin Educational Foundation (AHEF).
