Above & Beyond Awards

  • above and beyond logoMany Anoka-Hennepin staff members and teams go above and beyond normal job expectations to ensure that students receive a high quality education.

    The Above & Beyond Awards involve students, staff, parents and community members in recognizing and rewarding Anoka-Hennepin employees and groups — 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). 

    The 2024 Above & Beyond Awards ceremony will take place April 3 at the Educational Service Center (ESC).
