Above & Beyond Shoutout recipients
Anoka-Hennepin will be highlighting a number of staff who were nominated by co-workers, students, and the community, for going above and beyond. In this unprecedented time, it's important to shine a light on all they are and have been doing to keep students at the forefront of their work.
Thank you for all you do to make Anoka-Hennepin School District great!
Above & Beyond Awards
Many 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 and the Above & Beyond Shoutouts 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).
Anyone — students, parents, staff or community members can nominate a deserving candidate. All part- and full-time employees of district are eligible. Nominations of a group or department will be considered. A panel of staff and community members will review nomination and application forms and select winners. Each winner will be recognized on social media and in other electronic communications. The in-person celebration has been canceled this year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or call 763-506-1114.

Early April, fourteen outstanding district employees were selected as Anoka-Hennepin’s 2019-20 Above & Beyond Award winners. Safety guidelines related to COVID-19 prohibited an in-person ceremony, so a new podcast series highlights the work of the 14 Anoka-Hennepin employees who were selected for the honor. Nearly 200 employees were nominated and a selection committee carefully reviewed applications to arrive at awardees selected.
